The Filter/Shutter unit is an electro-pneumatic filter system that can be controlled through the user interface of the Xplus Handle. Essential features of this system are a fast shutter speed and CNC programmable drives that make it also usable in sequences or ADR inspection. The configuration of the three filter mounts can be changed by the customer in terms of thickness and material (lead, copper, aluminum etc.).
Standard configuration: The shutter is equipped with a lead disk (5 mm) to cover the X-ray beam during warmup and movement to prevent a blooming of the image when changing the position. The other two sliders carry copper disks of 0.5 and 1 mm thickness. This setup offers the possibility of 4 different filter situations: 0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 mm copper to harden the X-ray beam if necessary.
