GemX-160 and GemX-200 are battery-powered, wireless controlled, portable constant potential X-ray monoblocs. They can operate from 20 to 160 kV (resp. 50 to 200 kV). Each LiPo battery pack can deliver up to 200,000 kV.mA.s of radiation (eg. 20 minutes at 160 kV - 1 mA). The oil insulation offers a duty cycle of 2 hours of continuous X-ray per day. The focal spot of 0.7 x 0.8 mm (EN 12543 ; 0.5 mm IEC 336) offers the best image quality. In combination with a CR or a DR, they can be used for the inspection of steel higher than 40 mm thick. GemX-160 and GemX-200 are unique and up-to-date solutions for digital radiography in NDT.
For applications requiring higher penetration capability (typically for historical war bombs) higher power may be required. In trans-portable applications, X-RIS advices 2 particular solutions compatible with his detectors :
* a 200 kV - 4.5 mA (900 W) generator and
* a 300 kV - 3.0 mA (900 W) generator.
The Eresco range of generators suits very well field applications due to its excellent reliability, reasonable weight and its clever positioning system.
