Spellman High VoltageElectronics Corporation has announced the release of the XRV Series of high voltage X-Ray generators, setting the standard for compact 3.0kW to 4.5kW, high performance X-Ray inspection generators. Spanning an output voltage range of 160kV to 450kV innegative or bipolar output polarity configurations, there is a model for virtually every application requirement.

Active power factor correction circuitry reduces 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 SMTcontrol 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.
