Can I charge the base unit with the USB cable to my computer?
The fastest way to charge the base unit is to use the supplied charger. You can also charge with USB cable connected to a computer or a USB charger, but this will take longer.
How do I change language in the base unit?
Swipe right from the home screen to access the setup. System language is found under X2 Base Unit. You will be asked to restart the base unit for the setting to take effect.
How do I change unit for dose measurements?
Swipe right from the home screen to access the setup. Press the name of the currently connected sensor to find the unit setting.
Note: If only Gray (Gy) is available, your instrument has been configured to comply with German regulations where the unit Röntgen (R) is not allowed.
How do I measure with X2 on an AMX4+?
Position and measure as usual. The X2 has full AMX4+ support.
How do I view waveforms in full screen on my base unit?
Press the desired parameter from the home screen to go to full screen mode, then swipe left for the waveform. Waveforms are available for kVp, dose rate and mA.
I cannot find my user manual. Where is it?
The user manual for X2 is called "Help" and is integrated in the base unit. Press the menu button on your base unit and then "Help" to see the user manual for your system. You can also find video tutorials and pdf-manuals on the Product support page.
I have problems with my Bluetooth connection. What can I do?
On the base unit side, use the Bluetooth device with USB connection that is provided by RaySafe (Laird BT820, pn: 1922064).
On the computer side there are various reasons for unstable Bluetooth connection such as incompatible hardware/software or environmental radio disturbances during measurements. Try turning off any programs on the computer that may interfere with the Bluetooth connection.
If the problem persists, you can try using a RaySafe Bluetooth USB device on the computer side as well. Turn off the internal Bluetooth.
I want to measure on a panoramic dental X-ray machine. Any advice?
Panoramic dental machines can be challenging to measure on, primarily since the X-ray beam is narrow. Therefore, the positioning of the active sensor area is crucial.
Use DENT or R/F sensor.
Position the sensor in the exact center of the X-ray field, where you have the highest dose.
The positioning can be sensitive down to 0.1 mm. Use the RaySafe X2 panoramic holder to slide the sensor horizontally with high precision. Each mark on the scale represents 0.2 mm.
For details on how to use the panoramic holder, see the instruction video in our video library.
I want to use my Xi View Excel templates with X2. Is that possible?
The default Excel export format in X2 View is compatible with Xi View.
Is X2 MAM suitable for all mammography machines?
Yes, all common mammography machines are supported. Just connect the X2 MAM sensor and measure to get dose, HVL and time on any beam quality. If you also want the tube voltage (kVp), you must select an anode/filter combination. Swipe left from the home screen to select.
Take a look in the Mammography coverage table to see which anode/filter combinations the X2 can give a kVp value for.
What do the symbols on the Light sensor wheel mean?
Display: Luminance mode. For contact measurements on a display or view box.
0: Zero adjustment.
Light bulb: Illuminance mode. For measurements of ambient light or intensity from a collimator lamp.
Where can I find previous measurements?
The X2 Base Unit can store several thousands of measurements.
- Swipe down from the home screen to see previous measurements.
- If the base unit has been turned off, or if you have switched to a different sensor, look in the measurement archive: Press the menu button and then Measurement archive. Select the session you want to take a look at.
- You can also use X2 View on a computer and select Import from Base Unit in the File menu and select from the calendar. See the X2 View manual for more details.
Where is the active sensor area on the different X2 sensors?
The region inside the dashed red line is the active sensor area.
Note: Keep the active sensor area and its surroundings clean and free from stickers. Added material in the X-ray field may affect the measurement result.
