The Model 8700 is a versatile digital x-ray pulse counter and exposure time meter. It measures the time or duration of radiation output produced by a wide variety of x-ray generators.
For direct measurement of exposure from the x-ray head, simply place the 8700 under the head and make an exposure. The 8700 is "self-resetting". There is no need to reset the instrument after each reading. The reading is stored after each exposure, until the next exposure.
When testing x-ray timers and controls, the time of the relay contact closure can be measured using the AC input feature. When used with DC, capacitor discharge and 3-phase x-ray, exposure time is measured in milliseconds.
Typical applications include: verification of x-ray exposure time, calibration of x-ray timer, quality assurance, measurement of exposure, direct measurement of timer accuracy and analysis of x-ray malfunctions.
An optional remote sensor is available to allow use of the 8700 at distances of up to 12 feet away from the x-ray machine.
