4. Exposure time (s)


The exposure time is measured with a non invasive instrument.

PLEASE NOTE
The xgenus x-ray control features the "self-compensating" technology.
The automatic correction or compensation of the exposure time offsets the effects of the
line voltage fluctuations on x-ray film quality.
Radiographic over/under exposure is eliminated.
The automatic correction system works as follows:

A voltmeter located inside the timer constantly reads the mains voltage
while the operator selects the required exposure time.

The last voltage measured (before the exposure) is sent to the


microprocessor. The selected exposure time is corrected to voltage by
applying a special algorithm.

At the end of the exposure, during the pause time, the time-corrected value
is shown on the display of the x-ray control.
THE PAUSE TIME IS APPROX. 32 TIMES THE SET TIME.

The correct time is the actual duration of the exposure


The accuracy of the actual time is factory checked with instrument PMX-I.

5. Checking the exposure time

(continued on p. 45: Operating instructions)

WARNING
While performing periodic quality checks, some differences between the set exposure time and
the measured exposure time may be detected.
The differences are due to the automatic time compensation that intervenes when the power
voltage differs from the nominal one.
The x-ray control is provided with two types of accuracy measurements for the exposure time:
A. Set exposure (is the exposure time set by the operator on the x-ray control).

The max error is +100% / - 100% when the voltage fluctuation is -5% / +10%.
B. After exposure: its the exposure duration (automatically adjusted). Its calculated by the
microprocessor according to the line voltage, and its shown on the display.

a. Put the X-ray detector at the cone outlet; center the primary beam.
b. Turn on the x-ray control
c. Set one exposure time on the control.
d. Release the exposure.
e. At the end of the exposure, when the functional pause period starts, read the actual time of
exposure on the display.
