X-Ray Sources for bench-top and hand held instruments from Moxtek

Moxtek is a manufacturer of miniature, low- power miniature sources and X-ray tubes for a range of applications that include bench-top and hand held instruments. Moxtek sources are lightweight, small and can be packaged into custom enclosures that include monoblock and cabled designs. A source controller is also available.

The FTC-200 X-ray tube controller is developed to control, power and monitor miniature X-ray tubes. The controller includes all required electronics to operate the high voltage power supply. It offers input power to the high voltage power supply and controls the high voltage and emission current settings of the tube. The FTC-200 Controller includes built-in meters for convenient display and monitoring of the high voltage and emission current.

40kV MAGNUM X-ray sources and 50kV MAGNUM X-ray sources are used for a range of applications that include benchtop and handheld instruments. The high electron efficiency of the MAGNUM X-ray source offers a 15% higher output with a 30% smaller spot size at the same emission current levels than any other Moxtek X-ray source. Reflection and transmission sources operate on the input voltage range of 7-12 VDC with the maximum power consumption of 7-20 W, which makes them ideal for the light weight portable instruments for small animal imaging. These sources are offered as integrated ad cabled packages.
