The Cobia Flex offers you the convenience to make your X-ray Quality Control as quick and accurate as possible. It’s just as easy as the Cobia Smart but with more possibilities. The Cobia Flex has an internal detector, offers ability to connect different probes and ion chambers, and has built-in mAs. The measured values can be read directly from the large and clear display, and stored in the Cobia Flex to read later.
Cobia Flex users also has the possibility to use a tablet or a PC, saving data to computer, printing reports, using analyses and much more. The X-ray QA software, Ocean, exhibits the Cobia’s capabilities and adds benefits that make the work flow more practical and simple. Ocean makes it possible to perform remote X-ray QA measurements with your Cobia Flex. You simply connect to your Cobia Flex via Bluetooth or with a USB cable to your PC or Tablet – then measure.
With the addition of Ocean Professional, the Cobia Flex truly becomes an indispensable X-ray QA tool. Perform your QA work without any worries – sensitivity, kV-ranges or waveform types. It is automatic!
*Requires Windows 8, Windows 7 or Vista.
The Cobia Flex has no position dependence, just place it under the beam and make sure the detector area is irradiated. It is easy for everyone to use and gives you an accurate result. With Cobia Flex there is no need to reset between your measurements, so you can stay in the control room until all your measurements are made. The practical log function makes it possible for you to read your measurements when you have the time.
With the internal detector of your Cobia Flex you can measure dose, dose rate, kV, HVL, TF and Time. Internal mAs is standard but can be deselected if not required. Our selection of external probes gives you several opportunities to make the Cobia Flex suit your specific needs – just plug it in and the Cobia Flex will adapt automatically.
The Cobia Flex offers direct reading of mA (tube current) and mAs in a very easy and convienient way. With its built-in mAs function you only have to plug in the mAs cables from your Cobia into mAs socket of the X-ray generator.
As well as English, you can choose to run your Cobia Flex in several languages such as Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Norwegian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. This can easily be selected via the Cobia menu and we constantly update with more languages.

RTI Light Probe
Light Detector measures the brightness on monitors and film viewing boxes.
RTI Dose Probe
The RTI Dose Probe is specially designed for low dose rate measurements.
RTI T20 Dose Detector
T20 dose detector is small enough to leave the X-ray system's output undisturbed.
In situations when the CT has a fixed patient table, the Mover helps the CT Dose Profiler to slide through the CT X-ray field at a constant speed.
RTI Chamber Adapter
With the addition of the chamber adapter, Piranha, Cobia Flex and Cobia Sense owners have the choice to use ion chambers with their instrument.
