Spellman High Voltage Expands XRV Series with 1.8kW Models

Spellman High Voltage Electronics Corporation announces the expansion of the XRV Series of high voltage X-Ray generators with the release of four new 1.8kW units specifically designed for the HP and HPX families of X-Ray tubes.
These unique X-Ray tubes offer higher power to focal spot ratios to address the demanding applications of industrial high speed digital imaging. Spellman’s new 1.8kW XRV series optimizes the performance of these tubes, given the XRV’s inherently superior ripple and stability specs relative to competing generators. These units are available with output voltage of 160kV, 225kV, 320kV and 450kV covering the full range of HP/HPX tube technology.

The XRV offers active power factor correction circuitry reducing input current requirements while minimizing line-related EMI. Spellman's proprietary inverter topology allows for unprecedented efficiencies and power densities. A solid encapsulated high voltage section further reduces size and weight, providing reliable, maintenance-free operation.

DSP-based SMT control circuitry provides your choice of USB, Ethernet, or RS232 along with analog interfacing, simplifying OEM system integration. The two DC output, current-regulated filament power supplies are controlled via sophisticated emission current regulation circuitry to provide accurate and stable X-Ray tube currents. Comprehensive fault diagnostic circuitry, and Arc Sense, Arc Quench and Arc Count Functionality are also incorporated into this compact, space-saving X-Ray generator.

Control of the XRV can be achieved via a full feature analog interface, or any of the three standard digital interfaces provided. A Visual-Basic GUI is made available for remote RS-232/USB operation; the Ethernet interface has an embedded applet for control. Many power supply options have been made available to the user and are fully configurable via the provided software.
