Radiation Detector/Cooler

Crystal High purity P-type Germanium (HPGe). Coaxial construction. Nominal diameter 65 mm x length 50 mm.
Relative efficiency ≥40% typical (ANSI/IEEE 325-1996).
Resolution ≤1600 eV @ 122 keV and ≤2,3 keV @ 1332 keV (FWHM provides optimal settings).
Peak shape 1.9 typical (FWTM/FWHM).
Cryostat and cooler “Hardened” cryostat, with very reliable and low consumption Stirling cooler. The design of the cryostat is such that the unit can be turned off and back on at any time, without having to wait for a complete thermal cycle (complete warm-up before cooling). This functionality considerably increases system availability during measurement campaigns.
Cooling time The highly reliable cooler is designed for continuous use. Between measurements, the device is powered by a DC power supply, car battery, or other device. Initial cooling time depends on ambient temperature, but is typically 6 hours at 25°C.

Digital MCA and Data Processor

Digital Low Frequency Noise Cancellation “LFR filter”.
Conversion gain Up to 16,000 channels.
Display 4.3″ WQVGA display (480 x 272 pixels), sunlight readable, touch sensitive, can be used with finger or stylus.
Data processor FREESCALE I.MX535 operates at 1 GHz.
Data storage media Internal RAM and low profile removable USB drive. The device comes with a USB stick that can store more than 100,000 spectra.
File format ORTEC CHN and SPC spectrum formats.
Computer and device interfaces Connections USB, Ethernet TCP/IP v4 via standard RJ45 Ethernet connection (10/100 Mbps, auto-sensing), Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11a/b/g/e/i/h/j and IEEE 802.11n standards with security access protocols, including WPA and WPA2). The mobile MCB server allows remote control via ORTEC CONNECTIONS based applications, such as MAESTRO, GammaVision, etc. Wisemo is used for device mirroring and app control.


Maximum overall dimensions (including handle and Ge detector cap) 39.5 cm L x 16 cm W x 21 cm H (15.5 in. L x 6.25 in. W x 8.25 in. H).
Weight 6.98 kg
Internal battery 2 rechargeable lithium ions. 98 Wh each, nominal. Approximately 8 hours of autonomy at 25°C when the HPGe detector is cold. <4 hours charging time. The internal battery is easy to replace.
External battery Battery life can be extended indefinitely with the use of optional external battery packs. An external military battery (Model 2590) weighs less than 3.25 pounds and extends its life to >16 hours.
Input power 12 to 17 V DC from battery or DC power supply (universal power supply included).
Energy consumption Highest during cooling and battery charging: <100 watts. Cold with fully charged battery <35 W.
Operating range Temperature: –20°C to 50°C. Relative humidity: 95% non-condensing.
Instrument case IP65 Sealed against dust and water ingress. All perforations are closed with rubber plugs (connectors, memory cards, etc.).

The DETECTIVE-X-TS is a portable, complete and high resolution gamma spectrometer for in situ measurements. It can be used as a standalone instrument to collect spectra in the field or controlled by a computer connected via USB, Ethernet or Wi-Fi using applications such as MAESTRO-Pro (included), GammaVision, Isotopic and others.

The DETECTIVE-X-TS is physically identical to the popular DETECTIVE-X Radioisotope Identifier, which is considered the “Gold Standard” for critical detection and identification. Like ORTEC’s older TRANS-SPEC-100T and MICRO-TRANS-SPEC instruments, the DETECTIVE-X-TS is specifically intended for use as a more cost-effective, high-resolution portable gamma spectrometer for field measurements rather than for identification automatic isotopic. DETECTIVE-X-TS model includes guaranteed resolution performance and MCA emulation software, but excludes isotope identification applications included with other DETECTIVE-X models (Detective DETECTIVE-X-TS can be upgraded to the DETECTIVE-X 3 MeV and 8 MeV models, as well as a current dose rate calibration.
