DT5810 ULTRA FAST DIGITAL DETECTOR EMULATOR

The DT5810 is the model of the Detector Emulator family with the fastest signal output.
Thanks to an updated and faster DAC it is now possible to emulate the behavior of the fast detectors on the market with 1 ns rise time. In addition this new model features an Analog Input that can be used to acquire spectra from a detector and emulate them later. It can also acquire signals coming from the detector and reproduce them real time together with generate pulses.
The output amplitude is selectable at ±2 V with 50 Ω or ±8 V at high impedance. The unit can operate in the same three modes as the 5800 Family (Pulser Mode, Emulation Mode and Waveform Generator Mode). In addition the minimum programmable delay is 1 ns/step, and the Function Generator supports only standard waveforms: e.g. sinusoidal, squared, ramp shape, etc...

Features

• 1Gsps 16 bit DAC
• Pulser/Emulator/Function Generator operating modes
• Energy spectrum emulation
• Time distribution emulation
• Custom signal shape emulation
• Pile-up emulation
• Noise and periodic interference emulation
• Baseline drift
• 1 ns/step programmable delay generator
• Correlated signals generation on the two output channels
• Two shape on the same channel for testing the pulse shape discrimination
• Continuous and pulsed reset pre-amplifier emulation

DT4800 MICRO DIGITAL DETECTOR EMULATOR

The DT4800, called Micro Digital Detector Emulator, is the most compact and cost effective model of the Detector Emulator family and it is particularly suited for single detector emulation and educational purposes. The unit features one analog output, one digital input, and one digital output.
As a Pulser it can generate exponential decay signals with programmable Rise Time and Fall Time up to a rate of 1 Mcps.
The rate can be fixed or it can follow a Poissonian distribution.
In Emulation mode the unit can reproduce signals from a real energy spectrum that can be uploaded in the form of CSV or ANSI N42.42 files.
A database of nuclides is provided to generate specific emission lines and Gaussian noise can be added.
An user friendly control software is provided with the unit.

Features

• 200Msps 14 bit DAC
• Pulser/Emulator operating modes
• Energy spectrum emulation
• Time distribution emulation (Poisson)
• Pile-up emulation
• Noise emulation
• Continuous pre-amplifier emulation
