Spellman High Voltage Electronics Introduced VMX Series

New compact, high-performance X-ray generator for mammography

Spellman

August 28 2014 — Spellman High Voltage introduced its new VMX Series high-performance, low-cost mammography X-ray generator.  The VMX is designed from an integrated application perspective to optimize the clinical performance of today's full-field digital mammography diagnostic systems. The compact VMX meets the critical specifications at the price point that medical OEM's require for value-oriented systems.

The 40kV/5kW X-ray generator includes a dual filament power supply and a dual speed starter.  A DC current source filament power supply provides fast rise times with stable and accurate X-ray tube emission current. The solid encapsulated high-voltage output section eliminates oil concerns. Flexibility in interfacing is provided via RS-232 and optional ethernet connectivity. 

The VMX supports advanced mammography application features such as Smart AEC Exposure, Automatic Filament Calibration, Tube Anode Heat Calculator and a user configurable Tube Library. The VMX is a full-featured, high-performance, low-cost, next-generation X-ray generator suited to the demands of the diagnostic mammography system manufacturer.
