FAQs

What is the penetration capability of this system?

This system produces 160 kV at 4 mA which is capable of penetrating approximately 0.5″ of steel. 

Is this a real time x-ray system?

Yes, this system has a frame rate of 24 frames per second.  The higher the resolution the slower the frame rate typically is.  With additional hardware it is possible to produce even higher frame rates. This is only necessary when inspecting samples in motion. If this equipment is provided with motion hardware we must consider the speed of inspection.

Can this equipment be provided with additional hardware for motion inspection?

Yes, this unit is the basis of many different inspection procedures. The unit can be provided with an internal manipulator or a pass-through conveyor system.

Can this unit be provided with other imaging panels?

Yes, the standard for this system is a 9 inch square imaging plate. Smaller plates can be integrated into the system as well. Many times a smaller plate produces high resolution within the pixels.

Can this system be provided with a microfocus x-ray source?

Yes, the configuration is very different to allow high magnification of the sample being inspected. A micro focus system is typically up to 130 kV at 300 microamps. The focal spot is approximately 10 to 20 microns in size.

Can this system overheat?

Yes, depending on the environment and the operational temperature the system has the ability to overheat. There is a thermal protection system that controls the X-ray on condition if the over temperature sensor is tripped. This is done to protect the system from damage.

Can this system be tied to a network?

Images can be stored on the provided industrial PC or transferred via Wi-Fi or USB port.  Also, existing images can be loaded for manipulation.  

Can the image capture software perform any modifications to the image?

The image software allows standard control of the image such as brightness and contrast modifications as well as some convolutions. Other features are available on request.

Is this system radiation safe?

Yes, this system meets and exceeds Federal standard 21 CFR 10 20.40.  All doors and covers are provided with interlocks or switches as required. The lead thickness of this unit exceeds typical shielding requirements of radiation enclosures.

Is the power of the X-ray source controllable by the operator?

The KV and mA are independently controllable by a software interface. The graphic user interface allows the operator to have direct control of the kV and mA.
