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.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
