A new X-ray camera was developed for the inspection of welded joints. This camera has an active area of 200 mm x 50 mm and a pixel size of 50 µm. All electronic parts are fully protected against radiation damages up to 225 kV tube voltage. The camera fulfills and partly surpasses the standards for radio scopic film systems for weld inspection. A second X-ray camera features an active area of 200 mm x 200 mm. The pixel size can be chosen within the range 50 µm – 400 µm. Again, all electronic parts are protected against radiation damage. Even in applications where conventional X-ray cameras fail after a few months, this new camera type is expected to work many years with constant image quality.
