PerkinElmer debuts new digital x-ray detectors
PerkinElmer Optoelectronics, a provider of digital imaging and optical detection technologies, introduced its new digital x-ray detectors at the 17th World Conference on Nondestructive Testing (WCNDT) at the Shanghai Exhibition Center in Shanghai, China, last week.

The Waltham, Mass.-based company said the technologies are a part of its commitment to support health and environmental infrastructures in China.

PerkinElmer said its new amorphous silicon digital x-ray detectors offer twice the output speed of previous designs with output up to 30 fps, while maintaining a 16-bit resolution and the ability to produce real-time images. The detectors are radiation-hardened and designed to withstand the demanding test environments.
