50-75W Industrial X-Ray Generators

The MFX Series is the result of Spellman’s exceptional high voltage packaging and surface mount fabrication techniques, coupled with its proprietary encapsulation technology producing this ultra compact-sized OEM X-Ray generator module.

The MFX Series is designed to power floating filament X-Ray tubes from various manufacturers. It features a 0 to 50kV (or 0 to 65kV) high voltage output, and up to 2mA of emission current limited to 50, 65 or 75 Watts, operating from a +24Vdc input. The MFX utilizes a closed loop fila­mentry beam control circuit to provide a highly regulated beam current. The floating ac filament supply operates between 0.3 and 4 amps. Offering tight regulation, high stability and low ripple, the MFX provides users both local and remote analog control to set beam voltage, emission current and filament current limit. An optional USB, RS-232 and Ethernet interface is available.
