MAX 4000 Plus Electrometer Overview

Powerful Measurement Capabilities

  • Updated timed charge collections for various increments.
  • Three collection modes: triggered with automatic start/ stop, timed from 0-600 seconds, and continuous.

Compatible with Standard Imaging Software

Use included MAX COMM Software or DV1D Software to:

  • Automatic acquisition of a series of timed charge collections.
  • Perform basic beam profiling with continuous collection of rate measurement points over user defined intervals.
  • Export data in a Microsoft® Excel compatible format.
  • With MAX COMM Software, facilitate calculation of integrated dose and dose rate in Gy, Sv, R, Gy/min, Sv/hr, R/min, or Gym2/hr

External Beam, Stereotactic QA and More

  • Quick measurements of small volume ion chambers, such as those used in IMRT or SBRT.
  • Ideal for ion chambers typically used for data acquisition in water phantoms.
  • Great for mammographic, conventional radiology, and CT scanning applications, as well as health physics measurements.

Simple, Intuitive Interface

  • Simplified LCD display produces easy-to-read data.
  • Faster warm-up time from start up to acquisition.
  • Simultaneous display of amp, coulomb, and collection time minimizes the need to switch screens.
  • User activated, automatic zeroing function.

Superior Bias Settings

  • Compatible with large volume ionization chambers.
  • Additional bias levels for accurate determination of chamber correction factors.
  • Extended ± 0-450 VDC for TG-51 and 1/3 ratio IAEA TRS-398 measurements.

Reference Class Confidence

Designed to meet or exceed AAPM, ADCL, IEC 60731 reference grade instrument specification requirements.

LDR or HDR Brachytherapy
