Teledyne DALSA Introduces New X-ray Detectors for Non Destructive Testing

Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in digital X-Ray image sensing, today introduced two new models in its Shad-o-Box HS X-ray detector line. The new Shad-o-Box 3K HS and Shad-o-Box 6K HS cameras will be featured at Vision China,taking place at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, booth #1322, March 18-20th.

Shad-o-Box HS family of x-ray detectors

The new detectors feature resolutions of 2304 by 1300 and 2304 by 2940 pixels, with active areas of 11.4 x 6.4 cm and 11.4 x 14.6 cm respectively. Both models use a 49.5 µm pixel size. The new Shad-o-Box HS detectors deliver real-time frame rates of up to 10 fps, high sensitivity, and superb resolution in a single-tile, large area device that is fully integrated and features a fast, reliable Gigabit Ethernet interface.

The detectors offer a unique combination of higher resolution and fast imaging suitable for industrial x-ray inspection, scientific imaging, and non-destructive testing, including Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Inspection, Microfocus Computed Tomography (CT) and small-animal imaging.

"I'm very excited to bring our latest generation CMOS X-Ray technology to market in these higher resolution, sub-100µm range detectors," commented Thorsten Achterkirchen, Vice-President, X-Ray Imaging for Teledyne DALSA, "These new cameras are first-in-class in resolution, frame rate and sensitivity, making older technologies such as image intensifiers and CCDs pale in comparison."

Shad-o-Box HS detectors leverage Teledyne DALSA's advanced CMOS image sensing technology, enabling the delivery of low-dose X-ray images that yield higher image quality than a-Si flat panels and image intensifier devices.

Other features include:

  • 10 lp/mm resolution
  • 14-bit digitization of images
  • SDKs, drivers and programming support
