High Dynamic Range
The ability to image X-rays in real time simply and quickly is the ReX’ mission in life. The ReX is a high sensitivity, video rate X-ray imaging system for use in general purpose X-ray imaging tasks especially in applications where the intensity at the detector position is low. The system’s ability to adjust video frame rate, integration time and intensiﬁer gain allows the ReX to image X-rays over a wide range of input illuminations.
Suiting a wide range of applications,we oﬀer the ReX system to provide real time visualization for general purpose X-ray imaging applications in academic and industrial settings. The standard version utilizes a phosphor optimized for imaging energies in the range 10-30 keV but versions are available suitable for higher and lower energy ranges.
Utilizing the latest in CMOS imagers and high performance image intensiﬁcation technology ﬁber-optically coupled together, the ReX provides high sensitivity for imaging even low-ﬂux X-ray beams or images in real time. In the sensor module, X-rays are converted into visible light by use of a scintillator. The light is then ampliﬁed by an intensiﬁer and imaged by a CMOS video camera ﬁber-optically coupled to the output of the intensiﬁer.
Large image area with High Resolution
A range of input image areas are available to further tailor the system to the application should that be necessary with pixel sizes as small as 11μm. The detector head can be free-standing or may be mounted using the built-in universal camera mount. The system is self-powered by the dual USB connection.
The system consists of a detector head with a USB 2.0 interface. It is supplied with the ReX software application allowing control of image acquisition and adjustment of the detector parameters, including frame rate, integration time, video gain and intensiﬁer gain amoungst other things. The ReX software can either be pre-loaded onto a dedicated micro computer supplied as an option with the system, or may be installed on a computer of the user’s choice.
