The i-Spector Digital is an electronic system designed to replace existing systems based on PMT. It is based on a SiPM area (12×12, 18×18 or 24×24 mm2) with integrated HV power supply for detector biasing, temperature, voltage and current monitor. It integrates a shaper, a peak stretcher and a peak ADC to implement a simple MCA. The microcontroller on board generates the spectrum, implements a pile-up rejection logic, manages ethernet communication and HV control. It is possible to regulate the HV voltage with a resolution of 20 mV and monitor the real voltage on the detector with a resolution of 1.9 mV. Moreover, it is possible to monitor the photocurrent with a resolution of 25 nA and the temperature on the detector. i-Spector Digital provides as output an analog amplified signal and a 4k channels Energy Spectrum calculated on board.
i-Spector Digital can be coupled with LaBr, NaI(Tl), CsI(Tl), BGO, Lyso, and other scintillators to obtain a fully functional DAQ system. A web-based interface is available to configure and monitor the device, with the possibility to access the spectrum, process it online and download it.
Multiple i-Spector Digital devices can be connected and controlled from a single PC. The API interface allows to control multiple devices using very simple http requests and JSON vectors. Both HV parameters and MCA parameters can be controlled. It is possible to automate the spectrum download using the API interface.
i-Spector LoRa version is available: it can be controlled via a LoRa radiomodem and it is ready to connect to LoRa/LoRaWAN networks for IoT applications and environmental radiation monitoring.
i-Spector Digital Web Interface can be easily controlled through its dedicated web-based interface with no need to install software on your PC. The user can monitor the status of the module, configure the HV and connection parameters and visualize the energy spectrum in real time.
The web-based interface allows the user to perform online analysis (area under peak, fitting, …) and download the spectrum data.
Thanks to the internal circular memory buffer, i-Spector Digital module is able to store up to 1 hour of output data consisting in voltage, current and sensor temperature samples. The last 1-hour recording can then be downloaded by the web interface.
