X-ray scalable linear array

Scalable CZT linear array for baggage inspection, CT or building prototypes for medical applications

CZT-based detector for real-time operation

EV3500 scalable x-ray CZT linear array for research and development

The EV3500 scalable x-ray CZT linear array is a fully integrated photon counting energy discriminating cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) detector with an onboard microcontroller and FPGA allowing true real-time operation. The solid-state CZT detector technology provides superior efficiency and energy discrimination capabilities versus conventional scintillation-based detectors. The system is perfect for laboratory and research imaging. CZT based detectors have become the technology of choice in many of today’s most advanced medical, industrial and security applications. The EV3500 scalable x-ray CZT linear array has been designed for laboratory and research imaging, to allow you to cost-effectively research the use of CZT imaging in your equipment. The Kromek Team can advise on the set-up and development of any final product.
