Charge Integrating Electrometer
The IC101 measures charge or currents from pA to μA, generated by ionization chambers. The compact dimensions and long-range remote control permit it to be close to the chamber. An integrated high voltage source allows chambers with large electrode spacing to have correct bias. The IC101 can also measure other devices such as proportional chambers or photodiodes. The unit may be stand alone or integrated into a larger control system.
The IC101 is appropriate for pulsed signals or very small DC currents, due to it being an integrator type device. See the F100 for higher current applications.
Measurement data is transmitted through state-of-the-art fiber-optic cables. The benefits are numerous compared to other forms of data transmission.
