Unattended Dual Current Monitor

Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has developed a technology, the “Unattended Dual Current Monitor (UDCM)” that is an ideal solution for current measurement needs such as ion chamber gamma measurements. The UDCM has two independent inputs and each input detects currents in two user selectable ranges, -0.1nA to -20nA or -10nA to -2uA. Measurement results can be retrieved via an Ethernet connection or by monitoring the TTL output lines with a simple counter. Measurement data is also stored on a user accessible micro-SD card or a USB flash drive. A programmable negative High Voltage (HV) power supply provides detector bias voltages from 0 to -1,000V. The instrument is fully compatible with the IAEA Multi Instrument Collect (MIC) software and responds to the existing MiniGrand commands. The Ethernet port provides an IAEA RAINSTORM compliant data transfer and data security interface. This technology is available for nonexclusive licensing.
