KaVo Imaging released an all-new addition to its sensor portfolio at the 2020 Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting.

The KaVo IXS intraoral x-ray sensors come to fruition after years of development and customer feedback, according to a press release from the company.

“We incorporated the successes from our line of Gendex sensors and added customer-requested enhancements,” said Jordan Reiss, director of product management, KaVo Imaging, North America. “We are proud that the new KaVo IXS sensors are more durable, automated, and reliable than many other sensor options available today.”

KaVo IXS size 1 and 2 sensors feature KaVoTouch™ engineering in both the sensors and the cable, which were tested to reportedly pass the Gendex GXS-700 sensors in both strength and durability. 

The IXS sensors are said to be three times more resistant to damage or functional failure and withstand double the biteforce than the GXS-700. The IXS is also designed to withstand over 240,000 bend cycles and 22 pounds of force without functional failure. 

Just like the Gendex GXS-700, the KaVo IXS sensors have open architecture software capabilities and can be seamlessly integrated into the most popular imaging and practice management software without the need for a bridge or additional modules.

KaVo IXS also includes automatic software updates, direct-download calibration files inside the sensor, and IoT capabilities for proactive sensor health monitoring.
