 X-Ray Camera - Fiber Cam
Analog 2/3 in X-ray Camera with a 16 to 50mm Fiber Taper Scintillation Surface with a variable thickness Gadolinium Oxysulphide (GdOs) scintillation layer. Perfect for inexpensive inspection instruments where cost is a factor.

The Fiber Cam represents a new way to capture X-ray images with standard analog CCD sensors. The Fiber Cam is a standard 2/3" monochrome CCD Camera with a fused fiber optic bundle that is attached directly to the image sensor with proprietary technology. It is designed for OEMs who wish to use a standard camera with X-Ray sources. Using this technology the sensor is at least 1/2" away from the sensor and will thus reduce the rate of sensor deterioration.This camera is currently based on the industry standard Hitachi KP-M1AN. Camera specs are therefore the same. The camera of choice may be changed with payment of some engineering charges. Our scintillation layer is applied directly to the surface of the fiber-optic coupler for maximum efficiency . The thickness of the layer can be adjusted and its preparation is our proprietary technology. This layer is very sensitive to scratches and thus the camera ships with a thin aluminum cover plate.

  • X ray energy sensitivity varies between 5 to 120 keV
  • Analog NTSC output is very convenient output for computer viewing
  • 470TVL resolution
  • Based on Hitachi 2/3 in sensor via KP-M1AN
  • Customizeable fiber tapers available
  • We bond Fiber Taper directly to CCD surface
  • Expected lifetime of CCD greatly enhanced via use of FO coupling
  • Individually built and tested by experts
  • Recommended Frame Grabber is Euresys Picolo but works with any FG
  • Camera can integrate up to 1/2 second or integration can be performed via FG
  • this modification is avail for your camera as well...
