Line-Scan Camera Products

The X-Scan XR8800 and XRH8800 Series Linescan Camera is a compact integrated x-ray sensitive module that incorporates X-Scan Imaging's CMOS silicon imaging detector array chips providing wide dynamic range and solid-state reliability. Resolutions range from 50-µm to 0.8-mm pitch for the XR and 50-µm to 1.6-mm for the XRH. Chips can be butted together and mounted on a PC board to form a variety of active detector lengths ranging from 2-12", in 2" increments. The XRH8800 model is available with detectors up to 48" in length and is designed with tungsten shielding to withstand energy levels up to 225 KV.

The close proximity of the analog-to-digital converters (ADC) to thedetector chips and the use of low-voltage-differential-signal (LVDS) technology helps minimize noise and maximize bandwidth. A selection of standard hardware and a software development kit (SDK) are available for interfacing to computers. The SDK includes drivers, intuitive application programming interface (API), example source code, and standard inspection application that expedite developments of many x-ray scanning systems.

The XW8800 Series LineScan Camera also incorporates X-Scan’s buttable detector array chips and an integrated computer interface module. Multiple chips can be tiled together in a virtually seamless fashion for imaging applications requiring longer active detector lengths. A variety of resolutions and selection of six lengths ranging from approx 18 - 60 inches are available as standard sizes. Other custom lengths can be provided as required.The XW8800 camera system includes a camera unit, software development kit, power adapter and cabling. An optional frame-grabber which can be installed in the computer is also available.

X-Scan XH8800 Series Line-Scan Cameras are designed for high-energy x-ray and gamma-ray scanning applications ranging from 250 KeV to 600 KeV with option for 15 MeV energy levels.High-energy accelerators and detectors such as the XH8800 are required to image large, dense objects such as metal castings and steel objects whose thickness can range from 4 to 12 inches. A clever compact design combines scintillation (for conversion of high-energy photons to visible light) and fiber optics for conveying the visible light to a shielded off-axis linear imaging photodiode array. A tungsten housing shields the diode array and camera electronics ensuring long-life reliability under extreme radiation conditions.

The XU8800 Series “U” shaped Line-scan Camera utilizes the same detector chip technology and provides an ideal solution for tire inspection applications. Each camera system includes a unique camera body, software development kit, inspection software, power adapter and cabling. A recommended frame-grabber which can be installed in the computer is offered as an option.

In a typical tire inspection application, the treads and sidewalls of a rotating tire intersect the x-rays radiating from the x-ray source and directed to the camera body. A wide selection of scintillation materials are available for converting x-ray radiation into visible light for detection by the imaging array, which optimizes both sensitivity and image resolution.

The XMH8800 Camera represents a family of ultra high-energy Line Scan Cameras specifically designed for imaging ultra-high-energy x-ray and gamma ray applications at energy levels to 15 MeV. This uniquely designed camera assembly combines scintillation for converting high-energy photons to visible light and fiber optics for subsequently conveying the visible light to an off-axis CMOS diode array detector. A lead or tungsten body shields the diode array and integrated electronics ensuring long-life reliability under extreme radiation conditions.

Standard XMH Camera models are available in active sensor lengths ranging from 154 to 3686 mm including a broad mix of resolutions ranging from 96 to 9216 pixels on centers as small as 400-µm. Other detector lengths can be special ordered with virtually no maximum length limit. High sensitivity and high speed readout – up to 9000 lines/second enables inspection speeds over 100 cm per second. Typical dynamic range is 4000 to 1.
