KaVo IXS sensors are designed to withstand double the biteforce without cosmetic damage than the company’s GXS-700 sensors.

After years of product development and customer feedback, KaVo Imaging introduced the new KaVo IXS intraoral X-ray sensors, during the 155th Midwinter Meeting this February in Chicago.

According to the company, KaVo IXS sensors are 3 times more resistant to damage or functional failure than GXS-700, and can withstand double the biteforce without cosmetic damage than the GXS-700. In addition, KaVo IXS cable is manufactured to withstand over 240,000 bend cycles and 22 pounds of force without functional failure.

Like Gendex GXS-700, KaVo IXS sensors have open architecture software capabilities. This latest option is designed to seamlessly integrate, without the need for a bridge or any additional modules, into the most popular imaging and practice management software, such as: DTX Studio, DEXIS, VixWin, Cliniview, Dentrix Ascend, Eaglesoft Advanced Imaging, and Apteryx.

“We incorporated the successes from our line of Gendex sensors and added customer-requested enhancements,” says 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,” he reported.

KaVo IXS size 1 and size 2 sensors feature KaVoTough engineering in both the sensor and the cable, which were tested to surpass Gendex GXS-700 sensors in both strength and durability, as compared to Gendez GXS-700 simulated testing data on file, according to the company. KaVo IXS also includes automatic software updates, direct-download calibration files inside the sensor, and IoT capabilities for proactive sensor health monitoring.

To provide quality customer satisfaction, KaVo IXS is offering a “no-questions-asked” unconditional replacement warranty.
