X-Ray FDS Detector


The X-ray FDS is a high resolution (1392x1040 pixels), X-ray digital detector with direct coupled (micro) fiber-optic input that protects the sensor against radiation damage.

The detector offers up to 50mm x 40mm active area and 6 megapixel resolution. A custom scintillator is deposited onto the camera in order to allow 12keV up to 300keV. Array versions with multiple modules are also available, delivering up to 24 megapixel resolution.

The X-ray FDS 6.02MP delivers up to 1.5 fps full resolution or 6 fps in binning 2 x 2 allowing real time acquisition routine. A built in shutter allows smear free, shutterless acquisition even with exposure time down to microsecond range. Frame rate of >10 fps can be achieved when used in local sub area mode or line scan mode.

A device server driver control allows remote aquisition through existing GUI interface.The cameras have a native 14-bit acquisition mode and 18-bit extended dynamic range mode.
