March 30, 2015 — Spellman High Voltage Electronics Corp. announced the expansion of its Monoblock series of X-ray sources with the introduction of the XRBC. Spellman’s Monoblock X-Ray sources eliminate problematic external high voltage cabling by integrating the high voltage power supply, the filament power supply and the X-ray tube into a single, easy-to-package unit.

The XRBC Series is a compact, cost-effective 160kV @ 170/480-watt X-ray source that features a power factor corrected, universal voltage input and an analog interface along with standard Ethernet and RS-232 interfaces. The 170-watt version is convection-cooled while the 480-watt version utilizes a forced air cooled heat exchanger. These fully sealed units can be mounted in any physical orientation. XRBC Monoblocks can be provided with fan shaped X-ray beam geometry or a cone shaped X-ray beam pattern.

Typical usages include component scanning and security applications. Spellman’s Monoblocks can be designed in a wide variety of geometries with beam shape, focal spot size and other critical parameters customized for particular applications.
