The X-ray Output Detector provides a means of calibrating and trouble shooting x-ray generators. The Detector output is designed to be connected directly to an oscilloscope. The x-ray waveform can be observed to find a wide variety of problems inherent in x-rays. X-ray waveforms can be documented by using a digital scope, a storage scope or an oscilloscope camera.
The detector is simply placed in the x-ray beam, then the BNC connector on the end of the cable is connected to a standard oscilloscope. The resulting oscilloscope display represents the intensity-time relationship of the x-ray beam.
The detector is weighted to make it easy to place under the x-ray.
