1. Overview The Canon Digital Radiography CXDI-50G is a portable X-ray digital camera that can take images of any part of the body. It directly converts the X-ray images captured by the LANMIT (Large Area New MIS Sensor and TFT) sensor into a high-resolution digital images.
2. Notes for Using the Instrument Handling Handle the instrument carefully, as it may be damaged if something is hit against it, dropped, or receives a strong jolt. Also, handle the optional grid unit with care too. Do not pull the cable. Also, do not pull the sensor unit when the cable is tangled with something.
2. Notes for Using the Instrument During Exposure Do not apply excessive weight to the sensor unit. Otherwise, the sensor may be damaged. Limit of Load Uniform load: 150 kg over the whole area of sensor unit surface. Local load: 100 kg on an area 40 mm in diameter.
2. Notes for Using the Instrument During Cleaning Do not use anything other than neutral detergent for cleaning the cover of the instrument. Otherwise, the coating will be corroded. Storage Be sure to store the sensor unit and the optional grid unit in a safe place where it will not fall or drop.
