Golden Engineering XR150


The XR150 is a 150kV, battery powered, pulsed X-ray machine used primarily for security applications.The XR150 has been modified from its original version in 1993 three times, its lastest modification in 2016. The updated design greatly enhances the user interface capabilities and adds the DeWalt battery pack. At 150kV, it can penetrate approximately one-half inch of steel when used with one of our CR imaging systems, giving the XR150 plenty of power for most applications where portability is a requirement.

The XR150 is the smallest portable X-ray machine in the Golden Engineering product line at 9" x 3" x 4" (23 x 7.7 x 10 cm) and just under 5 pounds. This sleeker design makes it easier to slip the XR150 into your pocket. Multiple connection points allow operators to use various fasteners to attach the XR150 to belts, zippers or packs.

The menu based electronics allow operators to enter up to 999 counts in multiple pulse trains. Operators can also slow the pulse rate and even pulse the generator continuously at a slower rate. A life time pulse counter displays the total number of pulses fired on the generator and a resettable pulse counter can track the number of pulses from a certain event. The XR150 can fire approximately 2000 counts per battery charge on a DeWalt 12V lithium Ion battery that charges in 40 minutes.
