The 1500 Series X-ray tube is a 50kV, 50W X-ray tube designed for applications where high flux density and continuous operation are important.
Utilizing our highly stable and high intensity X-ray tube technology, the 1500 Series X-ray tube is ideal for medical imaging, XRF applications and most industrial inspection and non-destructive testing applications that require high resolution, including PCB assembly, battery, plastic, metal and mechanical parts inspection.
The 1500 Series X-ray tube can also be supplied in a stainless steel, lead-lined package that is filled with dielectric oil that enables the unit to provide maximum X-ray shielding and heat dissipation, effectively replicating our popular Jupiter 5000 Series packaged tube, which includes high voltage and filament connectors making it ideal for plug and play operation.
The 1500 Series X-ray tube is available in a wide range of spot sizes, targets and price points to meet your needs.
