Tech Showcase: Radiography Today
Innov-X Systems Inc. (www.innovx.com/products/delta) announces the Delta line, a new breed of handheld XRF analyzers. The Delta analyzers are fully ruggedized to industrial standards-including no PDA or movable display-while providing analytical performance and testing speed. They can take hundreds of tests per day with increased analytical confidence.
The analyzers have a rugged industrial-grade body; superior balance and ergonomics with over-molding and rubberized grip; rear-facing touch-screen display for visibility in bright or dim conditions; and external heat-sink engineered for extreme temperature and continuous high-power use. They also feature true hot-swap battery capabilities; fast measurements for high throughput; and redesigned geometry for outstanding analytical performance, speed and lower detection limits. The line also has an auto-calibrating, auto-charging docking station.
The maintenance-free X-ray technology results in extremely low maintenance costs and thus minimal downtimes, and the small focal point of the X-ray source generates razor-sharp projection images on the detector. The high physical resolution of the X-ray detector of around three million pixels enables very high detail recognition. Metrotom 800 achieves measuring accuracy of 4.5 µm + L/100. Through the use of polymer concrete for the enclosure, the use of lead can be largely avoided.
The system provides medical practitioners with greater device portability and extraordinary image quality. Building upon the success of the CXDI-55G/55C in the high-performance digital radiography systems market, the CXDI-70C helps deliver fast, reliable high-resolution images. It also incorporates a new glass substrate with a pixel pitch of 125 microns. Despite realizing a higher resolution as compared with the company's current 160-micron pixel pitch digital radiography systems, the new model delivers an increased level of sensitivity. In addition, the unit features a Cesium Iodide scintillator, which delivers high-quality images while reducing the X-ray exposure to the patient. The CXDI-70C Wireless DR System is an ideal solution for all of radiography systems, including mobile systems.
