Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has unveiled the C9750 series, which provides a complete X-ray camera solution. It offers a 12bit digital output via RS422 or camera link interface and USB or IEEE1394 (FireWire) interface can be provided for OEM solutions.

Compared with previous line sensors and other linear cameras on the market, this model offers enhanced noise performance, wider dynamic range, higher scanning speeds, on-board control of all sensor functions and diagnostics and essentially zero drift in the output over long periods of operation. It offers simple plug and play functionality.

The C9750 may be used in automated applications for the inspection of packaging, pharmaceuticals, industrial moulded metallic components, tyres, turbines, building materials, bone and glass in food stuffs, bottles, pipes, tin cans and many more.

X-ray inspection has been used fault and contamination detection, as well as for more routine industrial process checking of product characteristics such as density and weight.

Hamamatsu has also just released an improved 0.2mm resolution version of this line sensor, the highest resolution currently in the market place. Combined with its high sensitivity, the end-user can now easily detect smaller defects.
