C400 - Four Channel Pulse Counter


The C400 counts fast pulses generated by photomultipliers, avalanche photodiodes, and similar devices. It has four parallel channels that are configurable independent of each other. It provides high voltage bias for sensors and low voltage power for preamplifiers. Several units can measure in sync using a common trigger or encoder pulses.

Features

  • Four independent channels with fast discriminators, scalers, preamp power and high voltage
  • 10 nsec pulse pair resolution
  • 150 MHz discriminator bandwidth
  • Trigger distribution facility for large detector arrays
  • Quadrature encoder input for data synchronization with goniometer
  • Test pulser output for each channel
  • Monitor output for each channel

Applications

  • Fast scintillator readout, NaI, LaCl3 , LaBr3 and YAP crystals
  • Avalanche photodiode readout
  • Detector array readout for area and position sensing detectors
  • Crystal diffraction experiments

Integrated High Voltage


  • Avoids the need for a separate HV suppy
  • Precise programmable control of voltage
  • Choice of polarity and range up to positive or negative 1000 V
  • Short circuit protection and independent output voltage monitoring

Fiber-Optic Communications


Measurement data is transmitted through state-of-the-art fiber-optic cables. The benefits are numerous compared to other forms of data transmission.

  • Fiber-optics are immune to electrical interference
  • Minimal attenuation of light through fibers
  • Fast messaging over enormous distances
  • Radiation hard fiber materials

EPICS Support


Integrate device data collection and configuration into an EPICS system, without writing a single line of code using IG2.

  • Runs on Windows 7/8/10 and Debian Linux
  • Change PV names with simple XML configuration
  • Connect to multiple Pyramid devices at once
  • Add custom scale factors and offsets on a PV basis
  • Never have to recompile
  • Professional Pyramid support for bugs and features
