X-Ray Imaging Camera

February 3, 2008

The Shad-o-Box HS X-ray imaging camera has a 49.2-millimeter by 98.6-millimeter sensing area. The camera comes with a 12-bit digital interface for direct connection to a frame grabber that operates in real-time radiography applications at up to 20 frames per second. A Gd2O2S scintillator screen placed in direct contact with the photodiode array converts incident X-ray photons to visible light, which in turn is detected by the photodiodes. A carbon-fiber window is used as a shield against ambient light and protects the sensitive electronics from accidental damage. Image data is output over a high-speed, 12-bit parallel interface for direct input to a digital frame grabber. The cameras are available with both standard and premium image quality grades.
