Following the recently released RTI CT Ion Chamber 10 & 30 cm and the GE mAs Test Point Cable, RTI’s research and development program continues its success with the General mA Test Point Cable.
Currently, the cable is made for special mA accuracy tests for AMX-4, Optima, Jedi, and Fluoroscan generators.
In some X-ray machines, access to normal mA sockets for invasive mA measurement is not readily available. After testing with an oscilloscope to measure the voltage at specific test points, and using scale factors to find the actual mA, it was determined that an RTI Piranha, with a specialized cable, could perform the same measurement as an oscilloscope.
Not only does the mA Test Point Cable provide a quick, invasive way to measure mA and mAs accuracy on X-ray equipment, via mA/V-test points in the generator, it also saves a lot of time since there is no need to use an oscilloscope for setting up, configuring, triggering properly, calculating proper values, etc. All that is needed is to connect the leads to test points and use with Piranha meter and Ocean software.
The mA Test Point Cable includes the following accessories:
- Cable set BNC female & 4mm banana plugs
- Cable set BNC female & test clips (42 mm)
- Flexible test clip BLACK 200mm for banana plug connection
- Flexible test clip RED 200mm for banana plug connection
- Extension cable BNC male to female L=10m
- All available calibrations programmed
