Looking for an industrial X-ray detection solution that combines innovative technology, accuracy, and reliable performance?
X-ray scanning is typically associated with medical examinations, but in fact it plays a vital role in other industries providing security and safety for people. For example, X-ray machines are found at airports to scan luggage, on factory production lines where food and pharmaceuticals are produced, and for non-destructive quality control of critical mechanical components such as essential components for airplane engines. The nature of X-ray radiation allowing to ‘look inside’ makes it easier for food inspection or security personnel to detect potentially dangerous or harmful objects, and for precise mechanical operations to conduct quality assurance: formerly hidden things become visible.
ams OSRAM offers a wide range of sensing solutions for security and industrial X-ray applications that enable high-precision and fast image acquisition, reliability, high-sensitivity and low noise and power consumption. Highest frame rates and continuous integration without ADC deadtimes avoid any charge loss and best-in-class low-noise operation that allows X-ray imaging at lowest possible doses. This significantly reduces possible stress on exposed materials. The ams OSRAM solution comprises monolithic multi-slice sensors with pixel arrays up to 32x8 pixels and embedded multi-channel analog-to-digital (ADC) converters. Those integrated setups optimize overall bill of materials by eliminating the connection complexity between photodiode pixel array and the ADC, so simplifying the PCB layout. To address designs where more flexibility is required, ams OSRAM also provides high channel count discrete ADC solutions or even special customized integrations. Customers choose our advanced sensing solution for CT and flat panel detectors as well as large scale CMOS sensors for direct or indirect conversions.
Any X-ray scanning application can be complemented by ams OSRAM light projection and 3D-proximity sensing solutions assisting with object localization, user guidance or scan status reporting.
