DECEMBER 4. 2009--The XU8800 series of x-ray, U-shape linescan cameras use panoramic x-ray sources. The U-shape camera is appropriate for tire inspection applications. At the heart of a XU8800 camera are proprietary CMOS silicon imaging detector-array chips providing wide dynamic range and solid-state reliability. A selection of scintillation material converts x-rays into visible light for detection by the imaging array and optimizes sensitivity and resolution. The close proximity of the analog-to-digital converters to the detector chips minimizes interference noise. A collection of hardware for interfacing to computers and software, including drivers and an application programming interface (API) with sample code, expedites development of x-ray scanning systems.

X-ray U-shape Line-scan Camera Series XU8800 Series

The X-Scan Imaging XU8800 series of x-ray U-shape line-scan cameras offer high performance for xray scanning applications using panoramic x-ray sources. The U-shape camera is ideal for tire inspection applications. At the heart of a XU8800 camera are X-Scan Imaging's CMOS silicon imaging detector array chips providing wide dynamic range and solid-state reliability. A wide selection of scintillation material converts x-rays into visible light for detection by the imaging array and optimizes both sensitivity and resolution. The close proximity of the analog-to-digital converters (ADC) to the detector chips minimizes interference noise. A collection of hardware for interfacing to computers and software including drivers and an intuitive application programming interface (API) with sample code expedites development of x-ray scanning systems.

Setup
The XU8800 series camera system includes a camera body, a software development kit, inspection software, power adapter and cabling. The frame-grabber to be installed in the computer is provided optionally. 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.
