Tailor your X-Rad specification to your specific needs

Our full line of options and upgrades are available for purchase with your system, or as an upgrade at a later date, allowing you to expand your X-Rad platform to suit your research and application requirements.

Dose Measurement + Control

Specify the actual dose (cGy) to be delivered at a known distance and stop exposure when the dose has been reached

Measurement of relative dose is accomplished using a parallel plate transmission chamber so it can measure both the dose rate and cumulative dose in filtered and unfiltered beams.


Dose Measurement + Control is set through the TouchRAD operator interface.


Available for all X-Rad models - 320, 225XL, 225IR, 160XL, 160IR


Part No. XD1609-0000

Motorized Rotating Shelf

Quickly set up the source to shelf distance (SSD)

Key operated specimen/sample shelf allows the user to quickly set up the source to shelf distance (SSD) and clearly displays distance with an in-built SSD indicator.


The rotating shelf is 50 cm in diameter and features beam coverage indicators for select SSD’s. Shelf rotation is operator adjustable from 0 to 8rpm and has a weight capacity of 50lbs.


Available for all X-Rad models - 320, 225XL, 225IR, 160XL, 160IR


Part No. XD1602-1102


 

Programmable Motorized Rotating Shelf

Program SSD through the TouchRAD operator interface

The programmable specimen/sample shelf is similar in configuration to the key operated motorized shelf, but has the additional feature of being able to program the height (SSD) through the TouchRAD interface.


When the height (SSD) is programmed together with the irradiation parameters, recalling them will set the SSD together with either kV, mA, and time, or dose - if the Dose Measurement + Control option has been added to the TouchRAD operator controls.


Available for all X-Rad models - 320, 225XL, 225IR, 160XL, 160IR
