Technology

XC-Thor detectors are dual energy, photon-counting, direct conversion, X-ray sensors in a robust IP67 rated housing. Employing the very high efficiency direct conversion CdTe-CMOS technology at their core, XC-Thor detectors provide outstanding digital image quality for challenging environmental conditions. With the ability to be operated in Frame mode or Time Delayed Summation (TDS) mode this versatile detector can provide solutions for both scanning and single imaging requirements.

The XC-Thor range has the additional benefit of dual energy acquisition with anti-coincidence technology. During dual energy acquisition the energy of the detected photon is compared to two independent thresholds which are read out separately. The two energy sets can be used for material separation, opening the door to new imaging techniques in both medical and industrial X-ray. Anti-coincidence technology allows superior MTF through attributing each single photon signal to the correct pixel.

Application

With a combination of standard sensor active areas ranging in length from 10 cm to 15 cm; widths of 1.25 cm and 2.5 cm (larger sizes available on request); and 0.75 mm CdTe standard energy and 2 mm CdTe high energy versions, XC-Thor detectors are used in a broad range of applications.

Its robust build makes its particularly useful in weld integrity testing where the detector can be dropped into an existing mechanical scanning system, and field inspection applications where portability is important.
