ORTEC was a pioneer in the early development of modular nuclear electronics since the inception of the NIM standard in the 1960ís. Today, a vast majority of physics research laboratories are users of ORTEC NIM instrumentation. The modular concept and the availability of a broad range of functions within the modules enable virtually unlimited configurations of nuclear measurement systems.
The ORTEC range of modular electronics includes instruments in the NIM and CAMAC formats as well as other modular instruments such as photomultiplier bases, preamplifiers and other accessory instruments. Additionally, modular instruments for pulse height spectroscopy, fast timing, counting, supply of power and high voltage and other special functions are all available.
