March 10, 2015 — Unfors RaySafe released a new radiation survey sensor at the 2015 European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, Austria.

The RaySafe X2 Survey sensor offers fast, precise survey measurements in the X-ray energy range. It is the latest addition to the RaySafe X2 X-ray measurement system, and adds the ability to perform leakage and scatter measurements in diagnostic X-ray applications.

Unlike a pressurized ion-chamber, the RaySafe X2 Survey sensor is silicon-based, making it possible to ship without any special considerations or arrangements. The Survey sensor also has two trigger modes, manual and automatic, allowing the sensor to capture low dose-rate measurements in an X-ray machine's primary beam. It also features the ability to switch energy response between Air Kerma (Gy or R) and Ambient Dose Equivalent (Sv).

The RaySafe X2 sensors are specifically designed to minimize the need for user interaction.
