Highest Sensitivity X-Ray TDI Camera for Demanding Inspection ApplicationsHamamatsu Photonics32, Hamamatsu-city, Japan
Hamamatsu Photonics introduce the C10650 X-ray TDI CCD sensor, a brand new device for low level X-ray detection. Compared to conventional line sensors, such as the Hamamatsu C9750 series, which are based on CMOS technology, the TDI CCD provides high sensitivity, high resolution (sub 50 micron pixel size) and high dynamic range. The TDI-CCD allows very high speed imaging compared to conventional X-ray CCD cameras and up to 2280 lines can be readout per second. This allows the C10650 to be used in industrial applications requiring higher speed and / or higher image quality.
The C10650 incorporates a fibre-optic to shield the CCD from incident X-rays and the CsI scintillator is optimised for 20 kVp to 80 kVp operation. The X-ray camera module provides a 12 bit digital output via a camera link interface and operates from a 15V power supply.
The C10650 can be adopted in a wide variety of NDT inspection applications, including mining, packaging, pharmaceuticals, pipelines, moulded metallic components, tyres, turbines, building materials, bone and glass in food stuffs, bottles, tin cans and many more.
