XC-Cygnus: A Portable X-ray Imaging System

- By Jacqueline Wheeler

XC-Cygnus is Direct Conversion’s portable system for direct testing of photon counting X-ray detectors to ASTM and ISO standards. These standards have been adopted industry-wide to provide a common set of measurements for Digital Detector Arrays (DDA) in NDT applications. XC-Cygnus is a platform for delivering improvements in Image Quality, Operations, and Standards compliance. It is used for calibrating and managing detectors, maintaining information for testing and detector management systems. XC-Cygnus also provides access and support for advanced detector capabilities such as super-resolution and laminographic imaging.
