CMOS-based X-ray camera
Teledyne Dalsa CMOS-based, standard product camera is the first in the industry designed specifically for industrial CT (computed tomography) imaging at 30 fps in full resolution, the company said.
Rad-icon Imaging, a division of Teledyne Dalsa Corporation, introduced the Shad-o-Box 1280 HS x-ray camera. This new Shad-o-Box HS model is designed for industrial CT applications with high-speed, 30 fps operation, low noise, high sensitivity, real-time GigE interface, and a nearly complete elimination of image artifacts. The Shad-o-Box 1280 HS can also be operated in 2x2 binning mode at up to 60 fps for dynamic NDT and scientific imaging applications, the company said.
Existing CMOS imaging solutions in the market evolved from low frame rate panels, whereas the Shad-o-Box 1280 HS reportedly provides dynamic, 30 fps imaging. as well as low-noise, distortion-free imaging at full video rates. With an active area of 12.8 x 12.8 cm (5 x 5-in.) and 100 micrometer pixel size, the product offers an attractive image size and resolution for industrial CT applications. The camera can also be used for the inspection of circuit boards, machine components, and manufactured parts as well as dimensional verification and failure analysis.
Other features include:
- 14-bit digital image quality
- 1.6 megapixel resolution at 30 fps
- Sensitivity exceeding 10 LSB/micro roentgen
- Real-time GigE interface
- Low power CMOS design consumes less than 10 W
The Shad-o-Box 1280 HS camera ships with a power supply, GigE cable, Rad-icon’s ShadoCam Imaging Software, and Gigabit Ethernet driver. The software is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
