OVERVIEW
The C8855-01 is a counting unit with a USB interface and can be
used as a photon counter when combined with a photon counting
head, etc.
The counter of the C8855-01 has two counter circuits (double counter method) capable of counting input signals with no dead time.
Since the C8855-01 is hot-swap compatible (plug and play compatible), it helps you set up measurement environment quickly. You
can start measurement on the day the C8855-01 is delivered by the
sample software.
• Time-resolved measurement (minimum time resolution:
50 µs) for monitoring weak light detection like chemiluminescence or biological clocks
• Quick measurement setups (hot-swap compatible)
You can start measurement by just connecting the USB cable
without restarting the PC, if required software (device driver, etc)
is installed into your PC beforehand.
• Applicable to various measurement methods
The C8855-01 is fully controlled by DLL (dynamic link library) supplied.
User can create own software program, which is adequate for various type of user measurement, based on the DLL functions.

RELATED PRODUCT
Photon Counting Unit C9744
Photon counting unit is designed to convert single photoelectron pulses from a
photomultiplier tube into 5 V digital signals by use of the built-in amplifier and
discriminator circuits. Photon counting with a high S/N ratio can be performed by simply
connecting a counter to the output of the photon counting unit.
The C9744 uses a high-speed electronic circuit that allows measurement with an
excellent output linearity up to 107 s-1. The C9744 also has a prescaler (division by 10)
eliminating the need for a high-speed counter.
