The PILATUS3 R 200K-A features an active area of 83.8 x 70 mm2 and is the ideal detector for a wide range of X-ray applications. It is a compact and versatile detector that allows you to take full advantage of all PILATUS3 features. Achieve outstanding results in SCD and XRD with high local and global count rates that are far superior to those of counting detectors based on gas discharge or similar technologies.

The smartly shaped front and compact size of the housing enable detection at high diffraction angles and make efficient use of confined space around the sample. Fully air-cooled and with low power requirements, the PILATUS3 R 200K-A is a service- and maintenance-free detector system.
