MX225


Overview
The MX series is the only large format mosaic X-ray detector without gaps in the images. These detectors are suitable for protein crystallography, powder diffraction, X-ray imaging and many other applications. Rayonix MX series detectors have been installed at most synchrotrons worldwide for many years.

Available are various configurations of FOT (fiber-optic taper) coupled modules. The MX series of detectors use 3 x 3 or 4 x 4 arrays of fused fiber-optic taper elements to make a very large active area. Unlike other multi-element detectors, the images produced have no gaps between the modules. Rayonix factory calibration is permanent and suitable for all X-ray sources.
