Detection Technology delivers high penetration and image quality by introducing digital X-Card 2.5

Detection Technology Plc Press Release October 5, 2016 at 10.00 am (EEST)

Detection Technology Plc, a global provider of X-ray imaging subsystems and components, digitalizes scanning of the thickest objects for improved image quality by introducing new X-Card 2.5 model. The solution, optimized for the energy range of 320-450 kVp, delivers high penetration and image quality with material discrimination capability. It reveals the tiniest details behind large amounts of metal when scanning heavy or dense objects. It is an ideal solution for scanning cargo pallets, air cargo, passenger cars and other light vehicles.

The solution comes with a combination of GOS (gadolinium sulfoxylate) and CWO (cadmium tungstate) scintillators. Optimized thickness of the CWO scintillator enables good absorption efficiency and superior image uniformity for high-energy X-rays, meanwhile it is insensitive to humidity. Furthermore, X-Card 2.5 produces superior dual-energy images differentiating materials effectively.

“The high-performing and robust solution exposes contrabands and security threats, and is ideally suited to harsh environments like customs in harbors and airports,” says Tomi Fält, responsible for product management at Detection Technology.

X-Card 2.5 expands the company’s digital X-Card series, the modular platform easily expandable to a complete subsystem delivering time-to-market and total cost savings. Number of digital X-Cards and X-GCU readout electronics with necessary accessories provide easy-to-use and easy-to-manage subsystems.

“With our end-to-end detector solutions utilizing standard, optimized and scalable building blocks go-to-market can be done even two times faster. Based on the intelligent platform, it is also handy to do firmware updates and troubleshooting on-site securing non-stop functionality and longevity. These are key factors for delivering true total cost savings.”

X-Card 2.5 is available globally with a part name X-Card D012506413C, code 13013100.
