|Series 815 kVp Meters.|
Proven, Reliable Instrument Measures kVp and Exposure Time|
The Model 815 measures the peak x-ray accelerating voltage from tungsten x-ray generators. To measure peak kV (kVp), place the instrument in the beam, colimate to target on top of the instrument and take an x-ray. The instrument will display kVp. To get the the exposure time, press the white button. The Model 815 will display the x-ray type and exposure time.
There is a high resolution mode which is used for measurements on older x-rays and x-rays with slow rise times.
The kVp Meter has a large display which is readable from outside the x-ray room.
The Model 815 is battery operated, user-friendly, and has a two year warranty. Applications include verification of peak x-ray voltage, constancy checks, calibration of x-rays, and quality assurance measurement of exposure time. The unit is also used for half value layer determination, troubleshooting and repair of x-rays, and quality control. A carry case is included at no extra charge.
The kVp Meter has CE Compliance. All units come with a Certificate of Compliance.
Yearly calibration is suggested.
The Model 815 has been redesigned to use a new x-ray detector. The new detectors are more stable, more repeatable and have greater range than the previous versions. The measurement range is now 40 to 125 kV.
New Software Operating System
Improvements have been made in the internal microcomputer program that facilitates faster measurements. The minimum exposure time needed for kVp measurements has been reduced to 40 ms (0.04 second). This new feature virtually eliminates sources of error when certain techniques result in short exposure times. The shorter exposure times give you less wear and tear on x-ray equipment as well as less x-ray exposure to test personnel.
This is a software only change, therefore we will be able to retrofit any instruments that are sent to us for calibration.
