Sensor Provides Video Preview with
ON Semiconductor is enhancing patient safety in digital
radiography with the release of a new CCD image sensor
that enables video imaging under reduced X-ray dosage
conditions. The KAF-09001 image sensor provides the same
critical imaging performance as the KAF-09000 used today
for digital radiography image capture, but incorporates an
improved output architecture that supports a high-sensitivity
video mode facilitating patient positioning, while minimizing
overall X-ray exposure.
With a resolution of nine
megapixels, the KAF-09001
shares the same low-noise
12-micron (µm) pixels as
the existing KAF-09000.
The quad-output design
incorporated into the new
device supports readout
speeds up to 20 MHz,
providing a 10x increase in
full resolution frame rate and
up to 10 frames per second
(fps) video preview when the
device is operated with 3x3

Enclosures for Tough Working
OKW has launched its new EVOTEC designer table-top plastic enclosures for tough working environments.
Applications include measurement and control engineering,
IT, medical, laboratory, and environmental technology.
EVOTEC can also be wall-mounted for access control.
These smart new enclosures feature elegant and
ergonomic soft contours but are built to be robust. They
are molded from ASA+PC-FR (UL 94 V-0) for enhanced
UV stability and can be specified with a sealing kit for IP
65 protection. There are three variants: Version one has
a flat top with a large operating area for switches, push
buttons, and touch displays. Version two features a smooth,
sloping top for desktop
applications. Version three
also has a sloping top but is
recessed to accommodate
a membrane keypad or

with monochrome spectral
sensitivity in both sealed and
taped glass configurations.
Accessories include an IP 65 seal, wall
mounting kit, and self-tapping screws
for fitting PCBs.
