Detection Technology has introduced a linear array detector targeting brand protection in the food industry.

The X-Scan P series has material separation capability and scanning speed is optimized for industrial inspection and material sorting applications.

It is optimized from low to middle energy ranges of 40-110 peak kilovolts (kVp) and supports belt speeds of up to four meters per second.

The plug-and-play type series comes in 0.4 and 0.8mm pixel pitches with a standard 614mm length.

An optional camera link offers data transmission and synchronization between the detector unit and a system computer.

Ville Koret, product manager at Detection Technology, said it is ‘unwanted’ to have bone chips on a plate when eating a gourmet chicken meal.

“As consumers are more and more quality-conscious, we see an increasing demand for a high-standard inspection of goods. Global brands avoid costly pitfalls by utilizing X-ray imaging providing one-of-a-kind material separation capability.”

Detection Technology said low noise performance is achieved by digitizing the X-ray signal in the detector’s front-end electronics.

The material separation capability is enabled by dual energy and sensors.

“For this series, we have selected extremely fast and sensitive scintillator materials, enabling photodiodes to detect sharply, even the tiniest objects among materials close to them​,” added Koret.

The company has around 200 customers in 40 countries and employs 400 people in Finland, China and the US.
