Versatile Signal Processing

Icon High Speed Pulse Processing

The new signal processing unit with hybrid technology is a key component of the QUANTAX system. It offers superior pulse processing speed and guarantees reliable results at any count rate. The processor is capable of up to 600 kcps output count rate at more than 1,500 kcps input. This also ensures uninterrupted operation, even under extreme conditions, e.g. when getting close to a copper grid bar.

A Variety of Shaping Times Offered by the SVE 6 Signal Processor
Output vs. input count rate for selected
shaping times, specified by the
maximum output count rate they deliver

X-ray signal processors typically provide a variety of shaping times to adapt to different signal conditions. QUANTAX frees the user of the task of manually setting times by always choosing the optimum shaping time automatically.
