Carestream’s new HPX-DR is a high energy (3MeV),high performance, compact and lightweight DDA detector. With rapid imaging and a potential for reduction of your overall shot time and help reduce overall consumable costs (for film or imaging plates). The HPX-DR features heavy-duty shielding designed specifically for high exposure NDT applications. It can operate in either a wireless or tethered configuration with rapid transfer of images, FASTER and EASIER than ever before.
The HPX-DR detector is unique in design – coming standard with a rugged, weatherproof enclosure perfect for remote field work. Unlike other panels that claim a weatherproof design when used inside their protective carrying case, this detector has an IP57 enclosure rating without the protective case! With the HPX-DR you can stop wrapping your DDA panel in bags and keep working in rain, snow, mud or whatever Mother Nature throws at you!
REDUCED EXPOSURE – DDA panels are highly sensitive. Combine this with the ability to do frame averaging and you will likely be able to reduce your exposure time and still capture the sensitivity needed for your critical inspection task.
FASTER – Uses no disposable media in the process, eliminating cassette loading and unloading time, developing, processing and reloading for the next shot. The HPX-DR detector offers quick start up and calibration, and rapid image display after acquisition. Produce high quality digital images in seconds for immediate analysis.
EASIER – The HPX-DR detector is lightweight and compact with an all-weather design that is simple to operate. In the lab, it can be operated on a powered tether and in the field it can run 100% on battery. With the ‘hot swap’ feature the panel can remain on when changing batteries, increasing uptime.
WIRELESS – The HPX-DR detector can operate completely wireless giving the user full freedom of movement and minimizing set-up time on site. This is especially helpful for rope access teams looking for minimal weight, high sensitivity and a powerful wireless connection.
HIGH RESOLUTION – The HPX-DR images have a 139µpixel pitch and 139µspatial resolution that can reveal small details. All powered by our INDUSTREX image analysis software with the most advanced NDT post-capture tools for image measurements, enhancements and analysis.
– Ultimate hands free with robust wireless (802.11 A/N or G) secure data transfer, long distance communication and live panel monitoring. Get the most out of your wireless with reliable, mobile access point for extended range and a strong wireless signal.
Compact Design –
Rugged design with a durable aluminum frame and carbon fiber cover. Panel thickness is just 14.7 mm (0.58”) one of the thinnest in the industry making it easy to slide between objects.
The HPX-DR image area is slightly offset, allowing you closer access to the panel edge for profile work. This panel can fit between pipes and captures near edge so you can see and measure the outer wall.
139µpixel pitch is one of the best available, allowing for high quality imaging and defect detection. Multi-frame averaging improves the quality while reducing the overall noise in the image.
The only panel with this high a degree of protection against liquid. Unlike others that need a special case for protection from the harsh elements of field work, the HPX-DR is built to meet IP57 enclosure standards.
Multiple indicator lights on the panel edge communicate panel status, battery information and wireless connectivity. Its easy for the user to see at a glance the condition of the panel.
Powerful lithium-ion batteries allow users to make many images. When tethered the batteries automatically recharge or you can purchase a 3-battery quick charger to keep production moving. Battery ‘Hot Swap’ feature keeps the panel running during change. Magnetic tether stays attached but can break away if needed to eliminate damage to the panel connection in the event of a drop or pull. Power saving mode when panel has not been activated for a period of time.”
Easy to Install
The HPX-DR site install & easy workflow. Customer installable and simple to operate. Several basic connections and you can start working.
Rapid Job Setup
Flexible to operate in a windows or DICONDE mode, Our INDUSTREX software can be set to operate in a Windows based format or in full DICONDE mode. Use whichever best fits your workflow and customer requirements.
Shot Time Improvement
Shoot faster, radiate less and keep your source longer. In certain circumstances, it’s possible for HPX-DR to reduce exposure time.
Process, Analyse & Approve
High resolution. High throughput. HPX-DR can process images almost instantly once the exposure is completed for faster throughput. No need to develop film or walk the imaging plate to the CR scanner for that process. Preset the system so images appear with the desired filters already applied and approve in one click.
The HPX-DR can make customized multi-line or single shot-style reports in seconds. Create a work report by simply selecting the images to be included and click “create report”. Make a custom-made multi-line or single weld-style report in seconds with pre-selected data.
