  Typical wall resistance / channel MOhm 60
  Pulse height resolution at 2.8 kV and 3.000 cps % <80

< 0.02
  Maximum count rate / channel
cps
15 Mio
   
   
 

In addition to the standard CEM models, we also offer flat rectangular CEMs which can be stacked together to form arrays and which allow simultaneous measurements and read out of several sensors. The metalized contact areas are usually deposited on the narrow under and upper side of the CEMs. The outputs and therefore the anodes for CEMs smaller than 4 mm are positioned off-center. This increases the distance between adjacent anodes and therefore reduces possible crosstalk between the signal lines.
