Polaris 350KV X-Ray Sub System

The Power to Penetrate    

Kimtron’s Polaris® 350 X-ray Constant Potential Sub System consists of a 360kV Generator set, Controller & I/O Box, 5000-OA Tube-Cooler™, HV Cables and a 350kV X-ray Tube. The system is supplied as an intergraded, tested and optimized package to insure trouble free installation and rapid production startup.

A perfect low cost solution for applications requiring greater depth of penetration than all competitive 320kV systems. The Polaris 350 Sub System is capable of generating 12 mA at 350kV (limited only by the x-ray tube). For many applications requiring more penetration at high mA levels the Polaris 350 sub system can “fill the gap” and eliminate the need to move to a higher cost 450kV unit

Polaris 350kV X-ray Generators

  • X-ray Tube Arc Impervious: Polaris 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
  • Stable throughout the entire kV range
