As easy as a click, swift as a Flash

Precise measurements of current, charge and beam time structure

Designed to prevent electron backscattering, it can handle ultra high and conventional dose rate with a sensitivity down to 100 fC.

No need for vacuum systems and high voltage bias

Easy to set up and use, ideal for particle beam current measurements with absolute accuracy, seamlessly integrating into your daily QA workflow and FLASH therapy research measurements with protons and carbon ions.

Peltier cooling system

Stable efficiency and high repeatibility throughout the whole intensity range, with no need of measurement downtime.
