X-ray collimator trends

With the development of x ray collimator, xray reflectors are also structurally simple to complex, with features ranging from single to multi-purpose.

According to the driving method of the beam limiter opening and closing of the beam limiter, it can be divided into manual x ray collimator, electric x ray reflector and fully automatic x ray reflector.

I will introduce you to the electric x ray reflector today. The electric xray reflector is mostly used for fluoroscopy, which is convenient for remote control and is an essential component for remotely controlled gastrointestinal beds.
The opening and closing of the lead leaf of the electric x ray reflector is generally driven by a micro DC motor. The forward and reverse time of the DC motor can be appropriately controlled, and the irradiation field can be adjusted to the required size. The adjustment of the electric x ray reflector illumination field is carried out both on the x ray reflector and on the bedside console. In addition to continuous adjustment, there are various fixed size illumination field selection buttons. As long as the buttons are pressed, the motor drives the lead leaf to move to the selected field and fix it to meet the specific requirements of the radiography. The operation of the motor is provided with a limit switch in the lead leaf closing and maximum opening position, and automatic limit protection.
