MCA-8000D PA option for airborne and particulate applications

The Option PA package has been developed to facilitate the use of the MCA-8000D for counting particles in air (Size Calibration) and in liquid suspension 1(Calibration Number) particle applications._cc781905 -5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_Unit is calibrated and certified NIST traceable. Option PA package is capable of sensing 5mV to 10V pulses. The MCA-8000D is typically connected to the output of a particle sensor. Detects and displays a spectrum of pulse heights allowing the user to determine if a given particle size is producing the correct voltage.  The software included with the MCA provides information about the center of the peak (centroid and mean calculation), making it easy to determine if the peak is in the correct position. El MCA is internally calibrated to convert the MCA channel scale to a mV scale and is therefore automatically loaded so there is no need to manually load calibration files.
