The TB-02 is a general purpose pre-amplifier for use with fast rise-time detectors including photon-counting types.  It is ideal for use as a pre-amplification stage between a detector and discriminator, and is suitable for use with most photomultipliers including linear-focused (e.g. XP2020), circular cage (e.g. R928) and metal channel dynode.

The TB-02's compact size allows it to be located close to the detector thus minimizing critical cable distance.  Mounting holes are provided.
