The EIGER S 500K Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) detector provides frame rates of up to 3000 Hz. Combined with a compact housing, a dead time of only 3 µs and optional vacuum compatibility, the EIGER S 500K is the universal beamline tool for basically any X-ray measurement.   
The system offers noise-free single-photon counting with a sensitive area of 37 mm x 77 mm, a pixel size of 75 µm and attractive pricing. The well established control interface allows for an easy and fast integration with beamline software.
