160kV, 320W X-Ray Source

Spellman’s XRB301 Series of Monoblock® X-Ray sources are designed for OEM applications powering its internal X-Ray tube up to 160kV at 320W. Features like small package size and RS-422 (RS-232 optional) digital inter­face simplify integrating the XRB301 into your X-Ray sys­tem. Standard models are available with fan shaped beam geometry. Proprietary emission control circuitry provides excellent regulation of X-Ray tube current, along with out­standing stability performance.

Typical applications:

  • X-Ray Scanning: Food Inspection
  • Fill Level Confirmation
  • Security Applications
