Selectable Collimator Manual Collimator

Huestis Medical’s Selectable™ Collimator (CM-2200) provides pre-formatted sizing selection without the complexity of traditional automatic PBL systems.  It allows technicians to easily select film size and SID (Source-to-Image Distance) directly from the front panel.

Choose our CM-3200 Series which includes the features of the CM-2200 with the addition of discrete communications and on-board PBL capabilities or our CM-3201 Series for serial controlled units (from custom software provided by customer) in a choice of RS232, RS485, or CANBUS protocols.

Our CM-3300/CM-3301 Series collimators add an IRIS shutter layer for fluoroscopic imaging applications.

Special orders for remotely controlled under-table models are also available to complement a wide range of applications tailored to your radiographic needs.
