Analog 2/3 Inch X-ray Camera with a 16 or 25mm Diameter Fiber Taper (Custom Diameters Available on Request) and a Gadolinium Oxysulphide (GdOS) Scintillation Layer. Perfect for Inexpensive Inspection Instruments Where Cost is a Factor.


The Fiber Cam represents a new way to capture X-ray images with standard analog CCD sensors. The Fiber Cam is a standard 2/3" monochrome CCD Camera with a fused fiber optic taper that is attached directly to the image sensor with proprietary technology.


Our GdOS scintillation layer is applied directly to the surface of the fiber-optic bundle for maximum efficiency using our proprietary technology. The camera ships with a thin aluminized window to protect this layer from scratches.


The Fiber Cam is designed for OEMs who wish to use a standard camera with X-ray sources. Using this technology the GdOS layer is at least 1/2" away from the sensor and will thus reduce the rate of sensor deterioration.


  • Scintillator: Polycrystalline layer of gadolinium oxysulphide with full range energy response from 5 keV to 120 keV and 15 mg/cm2 density for optimized response at 5-35 kev X-ray source. Scintillator layer is applied directly to face of fiber-optic coupler for maximum light transfer efficiency. An aluminum light excluding cover plate is placed in front of scintillation layer for protection.
  • Analog NTSC output is very convenient output for computer viewing
  • 470TVL resolution
  • 2/3 inch sensor via KP-M1
  • Customizable diameter fiber tapers available
  • Expected lifetime of CCD greatly enhanced via use of FO coupling
  • Individually built and tested by experts
  • Tested Frame Grabbers: Euresys, Matrox, Mikrotron
  • Camera can integrate up to 1/2 second or integration can be performed via FG
  • Note: Other light sensitive cameras may be modified with this technology. Please contact us.
