DensXspect is an inspection system for measuring the absolute density and elemental composition of materials or items using X-ray transmission.
The X-ray generator integrated in DensXspect delivers a continuous and punctual X-ray radiative flux, with a diameter of only 500 micrometers. The sensor receiving the X-ray beam attenuated by the material itself is able to read the resulting spectrum. This sensor is made of a Cadmium-Zinc-Tellurium (CZT) semiconductor, whose signal is read by high-speed electronics: it measures both the X-ray photons intensity and their energy. Raw data analysis using artificial intelligence algorithms allows to extract the unique definition of the inspected material “fingerprint”, i.e. a set of information that identifies its density and its chemical composition with extreme accuracy.
The information is transmitted on the Ethernet port for subsequent use. The low power and the reduced geometric dimension of the X-ray beam allow to use the DensXspect system in easy compliance of the safety radioprotection standards: the radiation level is within law limit for safety.
