XRS3 (Retired Unit)

X-Ray Source

Golden Engineering, XR150, XR200, XRS-3, XRS-4, X-Ray Source, EOD, EDU, Police Tactical, Explosive Disposal Unit, X-Ray Imaging, Security X-Ray Device, SSXDThe XRS-3 is a light duty X-ray machine from Golden Engineering that requires little maintenance. The modular design makes component replacement easy and cost effective. The DeWalt® 14.4V battery and battery charger are commercially available in retail stores worldwide.

Lead shielding in the XRS-3 protects the user by minimizing radiation leakage outside of the X-ray beam while a time delay button and remote cable allow the operator to move a safe distance from the unit when it is in operation. Visual and audible indicators in the unit alert the operator when the XRS-3 is activated. Also, the XRS-3 contains no radioactive material. The unit produces radiation only when it is pulsing.
