Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

Welcome Taray!
I recall a previous post about BT being one of the first things to drop with a low battery, so I always make sure the PDS is fully charged or close to it when connecting to the laptop, which is running Win10-Pro 64bit.

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

I also have had issues with BT. The connection seems to come and go with a mind of its own. Sometimes it works well and other times it does not even want to connect. I have not figured out what is causing the problem.
I think Taray should also be joining the owners group shortly... :)

Re: More fun with CeBr3

Super nice. I agree with Steven that the slight decrease in resolution for a stand alone detector is worth it not to have the internal activity. Green with envy... :)

Re: Refurbishing project of a large 5”x3” NaI(Tl) detector.

Luuk Wow! Very nice work as the results show. I'm glad I was able to help with this project by providing the nice ADIT PMT. Congratulations also to Svilen on the nice resurrection of his detector. If anyone else would like a nice hobby price on these excellent 5" PMTs, please send me a private messa...

Just in case someone else With a Harshaw detector finds there way to these posts, here is a useful chart for Interpreting your Harshaw Model Number.

Re: Detector type

Luuk
Any idea what the /E (or maybe F) in the PMT size position on one of his detectors means?

Re: Mirion PDS 100G, Spectrometric Personal Radiation Detector

Svilen - Good to know, as I thought perhaps there was some internal problem with the bluetooth adapter on the PDS itself that was not reporting an error on startup of the PDS (which it checks). I was worried that I would have to send it back to the UK for a replacement. Hopefully our experience will...

Ran some spectrums this morning...
