Multichannel Analyzers (MCA)

  • MCA-8000D Digital Multichannel Analyzer

    Amptek’s MCA-8000D is a state-of-the-art, compact, high performance, digital MultiChannel Analyzer (MCA). It replaces the MCA-8000A, providing the same functionality with reduced dead time, modern communications interfaces (USB, RS-232, and Ethernet), and much higher data transfer rates. Because it does not implement digital pulse shaping, it is compatible with analog pulse shaping systems.

  • MCA-8000D Option PA for Airborne and Suspended Particle Applications

    The Option PA package has been developed to facilitate the use of the MCA-8000D for particle counting in airborne (Size Calibration) and liquid suspended1 (Number Calibration) particle applications. The unit is calibrated and certified traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The Option PA package is capable of detecting pulses from 5 mV to 10 V. The MCA-8000D is typically connected to the output of a particle sensor. It detects and displays a spectrum of pulse heights allowing the user to determine if a given particle size is producing the correct voltage.
