Varex Imaging Corporation Announces LUMEN 4336W Radiography Detector With IP68 Rating

Varex Imaging Corporation (Nasdaq: VREX) today announced the addition of the LUMEN 4336W digital radiography detector to Varex’s product line. The LUMEN 4336W joins the LUMEN 4343W as part of a new generation of detectors designed for increased durability and convenience for customers and end-users.

The LUMEN 4336W includes the following features and benefits:

  • Robustness. The LUMEN 4336W has increased resistance to water ingress with an industry leading rating of IP68. This means that the LUMEN 4336W will be ready for real world use, from the physical challenges of the emergency department to the frequent disinfection cycles now demanded by changing standards of care.
  • Reliability. The LUMEN 4336W has been designed with reliability in mind. By simplifying the construction of the internal components, Varex has minimized potential points of failure while also improving the design of the housing to provide protection from external shocks.
  • Wireless Charging. The LUMEN 4336W has an integrated inductive charger that allows wireless charging in a bucky, on a table-top, or in a carry case – wherever the detector may be between shots, reducing the need to remove the battery for charging

The improvements in the LUMEN 4336W detector are coupled with the reliable image quality that Varex has built its reputation on. Varex’s expertise in high sensitivity, low noise designs means that these mechanical improvements can be matched with best in class image quality.
