The PXS10-WB-10mm Wide Beam MicroFocus 130kV X-Ray Source is specifically designed to enable automated X-ray inspection on high-throughput production lines with minimum down time.

  • End window X-ray tube, high-voltage power supply, and controller are combined in one compact package powered from a 24 VDC source.
  • Sealed tube provides inherently low maintenace and long life.
  • Wide (115°) round beam is especially suitable for automated inspection.
  • 10mm spot to window spacing provides “best-in-class” high geometric magnification.
  • Small, round spot optimized over the range of operating voltage and power for distortion-free, sharp images.
  • 7 micron spot at 4 watts for high-resolution imaging.
  • X-ray tube, power supply, and control electronics in one compact package make system integration easy.
  • Tube head can be rotated +90° or -90° relative to position shown (see Figure 1 of Datasheet).
  • Auto-conditioning ramps source up slowly as required by the time the source has been off.
  • Digital interface allows access to diagnostics and operating logs. Source can be controlled with the supplied Windows™ graphical user interface or using the included Product Interface Specification.

Recommended for:

  • Manual and automated inspection of printed circuit boards and electronic devices.
  • Nondestructive test requiring high-resolution imaging of metal and plastic parts.
  • Micro-CT imaging for industrial and life sciences applications.
Certifications:
  • CE Directives 73/23/EEC  (Low Voltage)and 89/336/EEC(EMC). Includes EN 61010-1, EN 55011, EN 50081-1, EN 61000-4
