Konica Minolta’s next generation wireless FPD AeroDR 3 1417HD (AeroDR SYSTEM 3) exceeds the advantages of our current AeroDR series, and incorporates new features. It is the top-of-the-line model in the AeroDR series.
Konica Minolta introduces the latest technological advances with the AeroDR 3 “High sensitivity TFT panel.” “The thicker CsI scintillator” and new ROIC can reduce the electrical noise level by 50% or more. Now we can provide patients and AeroDR users with high detector quantum efficiency (DQE) and half of dose with Aero DR3 when compared with previously cleared Konica-Minolta systems.
Thicker CsI Scintillator
The scintillator material is evenly distributed from the bottom to the top of the panel, and it is more than 20% thicker than the AeroDR 2 1417HQ panel. This helps provide the high DQE.
New Grip Design
Weighing just 2.6 kg (including battery), the panel is light in weight, and a new grip design makes it even easier and safer to handle.
Super Monocoque Housing Structure
Konica Minolta has developed a new detector design to provide easy handling and high durability
The AeroDR 3 1417HD has undergone a variety of internal tests based on some assumed extreme operating scenarios.
Konica Minolta assumed an operating scenario in which a 130 kg patient lies on the AeroDR 3 1417HD main body for a bed-side exposure, and designed the detector such that it would not affect the processed image or suffer internal damage.
Sustain IPX6 waterproof compliance even after the panel was dropped from a height of 1.0m
The AeroDR 3 1417HD has cleared the durability test for water resistance after dropping it from a height of 1 m. The structure of the AeroDR 3 1417HD does not allow liquids to penetrate or damage the main components.
The internal test condition is that the AeroDR 3 1417HD main body is dropped once onto a concrete floor that has a 2-mm-thick sheet of, and then, the water resistance test is conducted. Depending upon the operating conditions and detector status, the IPX6 water resistance may be lost.
