X-ray Tube Products
The Apogee 5500 Series is a 50kV, 50W packaged X-ray tube designed for applications where high flux density and continuous operation are important.
Utilizing our high stability, high intensity X-ray tube technology coupled with grid-controlled variable focus enables our Apogee design to produce very small focal spots; this makes the Apogee 5500 Series ideal for most industrial inspection and non-destructive testing applications that require high resolution, including PCB assembly, battery, plastic, metal and mechanical parts inspection. Flexible and reliable, this unit is also well suited for use with X-ray optics.
The Apogee 5500 Series is configured in a compact stainless steel, lead-lined package filled with dielectric oil, which enables the unit to provide maximum X-ray shielding and heat dissipation. The design includes high voltage and filament connectors, making it ideal for plug and play operation.
