Operating program for an automatic alpha-beta counting system-FAG

Abstract

An alpha and beta counting system - FAG, for planchette samples is operated at the Health Physics department`s laboratory of the NRCN. The system consists of a proportional detector of 8`` diameter operated in coincidence with a guard detector, an automatic sample changer (FAG-FHT770E) and electronics (FAG- FHT1100 digital counter and controller). The original operation mode of the system was based on manual tasks handled by the FHT1100 electronics. Pin option for a basic computer keyboard operation was available too. A computer with appropriate 110 card was connected to the system and a new operating program was developed which enables full automatic control of the various components. The program includes activity calculations and statistical checks as well as data management. The program which was developed enables computer control of all components of the system, based on bi-directional communication. The computer software controls the FHT1100 electronics using the R5232 protocol and the sample changer by an additional 110 card Contec Inodel PIO-48W(PC). The computer controls the whole operation of the system: change of samples, high voltage change, start, stop etc. It handles in the appropriate order the different commands and operates the electronic and mechanic components accordingly (authors).
