Multichannel analyzers

MA531 (Radiation Spectrum Analyzer)

MA531 is a portable multichannel analyzer (MCA-MCS).

It has an internal nonvolatile uSD memory capable of holding thousands of measurements and hundreds of acquired spectra.

It is also powered by lithium-ion batteries that virtually eliminate self-discharge: the instrument is always available even after long periods of inactivity.

Thanks to a high-contrast graphical display and particularly advanced software, it can perform spectrum analysis in the field and identify major isotopes.

The ability to handle multiple detectors make it a valuable tool for those who need to use it in both laboratory and outdoor environments.
