Polaris 180KV, 4.5KW X-Ray Sub System

The Power to Illuminate

Kimtron’s 180KV, 4.5W X-ray Sub Systems consist of a Polaris® 180KV Generator, Controller & I/O Box, Cooler, HV Cable and a 160KV X-ray Tube. The system is supplied as an intergraded, tested and optimized package to insure trouble free installation and rapid production startup.

The Polaris 180 can be programmed to drive any commercially available 160KV x-ray tube throughout its full range of adjustability without the need for EPROM changes or tedious calibration. A perfect low cost solution for applications requiring very high levels of flux dose and at the same time strong levels of penetration.

Polaris III 180 KV X-ray Generator

  • X-ray Tube Arc Impervious – Polaris III internal electronics can withstand 10 arcs per second at full load.
  • Active Filament Management – No filament current overshoot during rapid ramp-up with failsafe filament protection. Filament friendly design will help to extend tube life.
  • Solid State Filament Relay design eliminating mechanical contact failure.
  • Superior stability with lowest KV ripple on the market.
  • Ultra-sensitive stable MA regulation down to 100 micro amps
  • Serviceable to the component level.
