Communication, Power, X-Ray Control, & Lighting Capabilities
The NOVO Control Box has a built-in battery that lasts over 8 hours or over 16 hours with a second built-in battery (tested while grabbing over 1000 images). When AC is available, the Control Box can receive unlimited power via the Communication Cable that is connected to the system’s Hub in the case. The Control Box has a built-in fast charger; Charging time is only 2.5 hours or 5 hours including the second built-in battery, and power auto-sense, so it will switch between AC power to battery power automatically and charge during system operation.
Wireless Communication: The Control Box has a built-in long range wireless transceiver that can communicate with the detector and one or more tablets or PCs simultaneously. Wired Communication: Full cable connection to the detector, tablet, and x-ray source is provided using rugged MIL-DTL-38999 connectors to ensure a reliable connection in the hardest conditions.
The Control Box controls the x-ray source being used, so the activation can be done safely via the tablet. All Golden Engineering sources are fully supported (XRS-4, XRS-3, XR200, and XR150) both latest generations (with 5 pin connectors) and older generations (2 or 4 pin connectors). Constant potential sources such as the ICM CP120B and other industrial sources are also compatible.
Note: Iridium and Selenium gamma sources can also be used with NOVO’s systems.
A White LED Flashlight can be remotely turned on and off via the tablet or directly from the Control Box. This illumination capability is helpful both for lighting the object and the environment as well as an added safety feature as an automatic warning flash is activated during x-ray operation. Infrared Flashlight illumination provides a discreet solution when operators use night vision goggles or Novo's IR video camera. Remote activation via the tablet or direct activation via the Control Box are both available.
Assisting Illumination near the connectors at the front side of the Control Box, allows easier cable connection in limited visibility conditions.
Mounting Points at the top and bottom of the Control Box allow simple and safe mounting solutions to a tripod or straps when needed.
Weatherproof design ensures reliable operation in all weather conditions. The control box has no moving parts (fan free) for maximum reliability.
Direct Connection mechanism is available for a fast and safe attachment of the Golden XR150, XR200 and XRS-3 sources directly to the Control Box thus minimizing the number of items taken down range to two (the Detector and the Control Box attached to the Golden source).
LED Indicators shows the CONNECTION, DC IN and BATTERY status at all times so you know if your attention is needed just by looking at the Control Box. During Infrared illumination, the LED indicators are switched off for covert operation.
An Audible Siren is automatically activated during x-ray operation for added safety.
Remote On/Off of the Control Box is possible when using wired communication. When using wireless communication, remote switch Off is available as well. These capabilities allow preserving battery power or disabling wireless transmission when needed.
