The X-Scan C is a product family of X-ray line cameras for the quality control, sorting, and grading of various goods including the food and pharmaceutical industries with high quality and throughput time requirements.
“We are proud to announce the application-optimized X-Scan C series to enhance X-ray deployment in extreme industrial conditions. In our view, it is a one-of-a-kind in its target segments. The X-Scan C is the only plug-and-play-type, IP67 water-resistant, line-scan detector series,” Jussi Laurila, product manager at Detection Technology, said.
“X-Scan C is equipped with slim mechanics and a built-in control unit. This standalone detector series enables easy X-ray system configurations, streamlines system designs, and minimizes the number of components for speeding up time-to-market and delivering total cost savings for OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and system integrators.”
The series utilizes a secure GigE interface for improved data and control communication, and is protected against electrical interference. The X-Scan C comes with fast and sensitive scintillators enabling high image quality. The image quality is further boosted by pixel discontinuity correction and pixel binning functions embedded in the linear array detectors.
“These key features help to provide edgeless images, as well as balance the resolution and contrast of X-ray images,” Laurila said.
“This is highly valued in applications that seek both high image quality and screening speed to secure safety of mass-produced consumer goods. In addition to food and medicine inspection, X-Scan C boosts quality control and brand protection in versatile use cases.”
The plug-and-play-type X-Scan C is built on a modular, digital platform, making it scalable to various system configurations. Several different detector lengths are available to cover a wide range of conveyor belt widths and object sizes to be inspected with a single line camera.
X-Scan C is mechanically compatible with the previous product generation.
