Ortec Releases Detective-X-TS Spectrometer

Longer battery life, shorter cool-down time, and better connectivity options than its predecessors

Published: Thursday, March 3, 2022 - 12:59

(AMETEK: Oak Ridge, TN) -- The ORTEC Products Group of AMETEK’s Material Analysis Division has released the Detective-X-TS (Detective-X Trans-SPEC Edition), a portable gamma spectrometer for mobile and field gamma spectroscopy measurements.

The Detective-X-TS is the successor to ORTEC’s legacy Trans-SPEC product line. The Detective-X-TS optimally combines the large Trans-SPEC-100 detector and the size of the micro-Trans-SPEC with a much longer battery life, shorter cool-down time, and better connectivity options than any of its Trans-SPEC predecessors. The instrument includes the onboard Trans-SPEC software for use as an all-inclusive, standalone gamma spectrometer and is easily integrated with computer-based spectroscopy applications through WiFi, wired Ethernet, and USB connections.

“The Detective-X Trans-SPEC edition is built on our proven Detective-X platform, which is widely considered the ‘gold standard’ in the handheld radio-isotope Identification device (RIID) market,” says Ken Embury, ORTEC’s product manager. “The excellent combination of high-purity germanium-detector performance, instrument size, and functionality makes it the optimal instrument for portable gamma spectroscopy measurements such as waste assay, soil monitoring, and mobile lab configurations.”

The ORTEC Products Group is a leading supplier of high-resolution, HPGe-based radiation identifiers, with 60 years of experience in the design and manufacture of highly sensitive radiation detectors used by government and industrial laboratories, nuclear and medical research facilities, and in nuclear safeguards.
