X-Ray Source | XRS-4

Supplier: NDT Equipment Sales

Golden Engineering has recently released the XRS-4 light duty pulsed-ray machine, pulsed x-rays generate a high intensity x-ray energy burst (pulse) in 15 nanoseconds.

Price Guide: POA

The output dose of each pulse is approximately 5mR measured 30 cms in front of the X-ray machine. Maximum penetration is close to 50mm of steel using a digital imaging system.

Pulsed x-ray technology has inherent advantages for field operation compared to conventional constant potential x-ray machines or radioactive sources.


  • Extremely small PORTABLE unit with significant penetrating capability
  • Pulsed technology generates high energy output voltage using minimal input voltage
  • Featues DeWalt battery pack, electronic control module, and high voltage tube in a singe package design


  • Costs less than alternative technologies
  • Minimal regulative costs compared to a radioactive source
  • Significant savings in time and labour


  • Simple user interface with variable pulse setting
  • Compatible with CR, DR digital imaging and high speed film using a fluorescent screen
  • Easily attaches to a tripod or custom fixture


  • Can be operated during normal business hours without evacuating an entire facility
