Spellman High Voltage Announces the Introduction of Its NEW uX (“micro X”) An Ultra-Compact Version of The Industry Leading MNX

Groundbreaking new generator is 30% smaller by volume than similar purpose generators in the industry

June 03, 2014

Hauppauge New York – Spellman High Voltage Electronics Corp announced today the introduction of its groundbreaking new X-Ray module, the uX, the most compact generator of its class on the market today.

uX Series

Spellman has taken its innovative techniques for surface mount design and encapsulation to the next level, producing an ultra-compact redesign of its industry standard MNX module. The 65kV uX measures 4” x 2.87” x 9” (101.6 x 72.95 x 228.6mm) - 30% smaller by volume than MNX, and weight has decreased from 6.5 lbs (3.0kg) to only 4.5 lbs (2.1kg).

Designed to power cathode grounded X-Ray tubes from all major tube providers, the uX provides between 50 and 65kV and up to 75W. The uX has an adjustable isolated filament supply and is over-voltage and short-circuit protected, with local and remote emission control.

The high stability (.05% over 8 hours), very low ripple, and tightly regulated µX also has fully integrated digital control for beam voltage, emission current, and filament current limit via Ethernet, RS232, or USB. Spellman’s proprietary GUI allows standard operation of the module, and simplifies OEM integration by allowing customized operation of functional parameters. Suitable for many analytical and industrial inspection applications, the µX also features a Grid Bias option for commercially available gridded X-Ray tubes, including the popular Oxford Apogee tube.
