Pulse energy bank technology – Enabling medical institutions with efficient x-ray solution

Fixed x-ray machines have a rich and fascinating history that revolutionized the field of medical imaging. These machines, which are permanently installed in hospitals and clinics, have come a long way since their invention. The history of fixed x-ray machines dates back to the late 19th century when Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered x-rays. His groundbreaking discovery paved the way for the development of more advanced and efficient machines.

Over the years, fixed x-ray machines have undergone significant technological advancements, improving image quality, reducing radiation exposure, and increasing patient comfort. Today, these machines play a crucial role in diagnosing various medical conditions.

Advantages of fixed x-ray system
One of the main advantages of using a fixed x-ray machine is its consistency and accuracy in capturing images. Unlike portable or mobile x-ray machines, which may require frequent calibrations and adjustments, fixed x-ray machines are stationary, so they maintain a consistent level of performance. This is especially beneficial in medical settings where precise imaging is crucial for accurate diagnoses.

Additionally, fixed x-ray machines have a wider range of imaging capabilities compared to portable or mobile x-rays, allowing for more detailed and comprehensive examinations. With technological advancement, fixed x-ray machines offer faster and more efficient image processing, reducing radiation exposure, saving time, and improving patient care. Overall, the use of a fixed x-ray machine greatly benefits healthcare professionals and patients with reliable and high-quality diagnostic imaging.

Limitations of fixed x-ray system
Traditional x-ray machines are bulky and require a dedicated room with sufficient floor space. This is a major challenge in medical facilities with limited space or labs where multiple x-ray units are needed. The investment representing the major upfront cost for a medical facility to purchase a fixed x-ray machine is significantly high.

The fixed x-ray machines typically require a dedicated high-voltage power supply, which requires electrical upgrades in some facilities. The need for a 3-phase power line restricts placement options, limiting flexibility and future expansion.

Pulse energy bank technology
The pulse energy bank (PEB) technology is the latest innovation that uses pulse power-processing techniques developed for scientific research. This PEB technology enables the fixed x-ray machine to deliver 8 kW of output power from an input power of only 2 kW. The PEB technology demonstrates advantages, such as operation from standard power outlets, immunity to line drops, and the ability to operate the machine from a small back-up generator or home inverter.

For the user, this means a powerful 8kW x-ray can be used from any wall outlet without worrying about the installed power capacity. The PEB technology also makes the machine compact and lower in weight. Mains power quality and availability is a challenge in many medical institutions. Installing new electrical wiring and switchgear to accommodate powerful x-ray equipment is not always feasible.

ALERIO’s innovative PEB technology integrated x-ray system enables compact design, effectively addressing these common challenges encountered by medical institutions.

PEB technology in India
PEB technology is pioneered in India by ALERIO X-rays. The ALERIO Maestro 8000 fixed x-ray system is the first-of-its-kind design, enabled with PEB technology. This product is designed and developed in India. The product is safety-certified and type-approved and comes with the well-known ALERIO after-sales support and warranty.
