Golden Engineering has recently released the XRS-4 light duty pulsed-ray machine. Pulsed X-rays generate a high intensity X-ray energy burst (pulse) in 15 nano seconds. The output dose of each pulse is approximately 5 mR measured 30 cms in front of the X-ray machine. Maximum penetration is close to 50 mm of steel using a digital imaging system. Pulsed X-ray technology has inherent advantages for field operation compared to conventional constant potential X-ray machines or radioactive sources.
- Extremely small PORTABLE unit with significant penetrating capability.
- Pulsed technology generates high energy output voltage using minimal input voltage.
- Features DeWalt® battery pack, electronic control module, and high voltage tube in a single package design.
- Costs less than alternative technologies.
- Minimal regulative costs compared to a radioactive source.
- Significant savings in time and labour.
- Simple user interface with variable pulse setting.
- Compatible with CR, DR digital imaging and high speed film using a fluorescent screen.
- Easily attaches to a tripod or custom fixture.
- Can be operated during normal business hours without evacuating an entire facility.
- Minimal side and rear leakage means operator stand-off distance is 20 feet behind the unit.
