Polaris HP-180, 7.5KW X-Ray Generator

The Power to Illuminate

Kimtron’s 180KV, 7.5KW platform is sold stand-alone or as a Sub System consisting of; Polaris® 180KV, 7.5KW Generator, Controller & I/O Box, Cooler, HV Cable and a 160KV- 6KW X-ray Tube. The Sub System is supplied as an intergraded tested and optimized package to insure a trouble free installation and rapid production startup.

The Polaris HP-180KV generator driving currently available a 160KV, 6kW X-ray tube can produce 100ma at 60KV or 37.5ma at 160KV with precision accuracy and full range adjustability. A perfect low cost solution for applications requiring very high levels of flux dose and at the same time, strong levels of penetration.

  • X-ray Tube Arc Impervious - Polaris III internal electronics can withstand 10 arcs per second at full load.
  • Active Filament Management - No filament current emission 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.
