EVERETT, WA -- Unfors RaySafe released a new radiation survey sensor today at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, Austria. The RaySafe X2 Survey sensor is the easiest and fastest solution for precise survey measurements in the X-ray energy range. It is the latest addition to the continually expanding RaySafe X2 X-ray measurement system, and adds the ability to perform leakage and scatter measurements in diagnostic X-ray applications.
"Our customers will be pleased to find the simple design they know from the other RaySafe X2 sensors, coupled with unprecedented accuracy and sensitivity," explained Magnus Kristofferson, CEO of Unfors RaySafe. "We're proud to expand the quality assurance sensor portfolio."
Unlike a pressurized ion-chamber, the RaySafe X2 Survey sensor is silicon-based, making it possible to ship without any special considerations or arrangements. The Survey sensor also has two trigger modes: manual and automatic. These modes allow the sensor to capture low dose-rate measurements in an X-ray machine's primary beam. Another unique feature is its ability to switch energy response between Air Kerma (Gy or R) and Ambient Dose Equivalent (Sv).
The RaySafe X2 sensors are specifically designed to minimize the need for user interaction. Other sensors in the RaySafe X2 Measurement System include: R/F, MAM, CT and Light.
