ICP Series


High pressure ionization chambers, designed for environmental area monitoring of the gamma dose rate, or gamma monitoring in pulsed fields such as synchrotrons.

The high-pressure ionisation chambers of the ICP Series are designed for environmental area monitoring of the gamma dose rate; the enclosure of the ICP-T is particularly suited for the detection of low-energy gammas (>35 keV) 

All models are supplied together with ELSE NUCLEAR’s state-of-the-art HV and electrometer boards (autoranging), providing power supply, signal acquisition and processing.

The standard electrometer is a 9 decades version (10 nSv/h ÷ 10 Sv/h), while the -PF version comes with a 7 decades electrometer (10 nSv/h ÷ 0.1 Sv/h) for pulsed fields measurements. The -PF version is particularly suited for measuring very high-level pulsed radiation fields, such as those generated by synchrotrons and other accelerators.

The ionisation chambers of the ICP Series are managed by ratemeters of the SATURN Series (ETH or serial communication), which can also manage an alarm column (ALU) through the available relay contacts.
