PRESS RELEASE

High resolution microfocus X-ray source
The L10711 microfocus X-ray source (MFX) delivers the high resolution (0.25 µm minimum) and stability required for X-ray nondestructive inspection, 3D imaging, and computed tomography (CT).

One advantageous feature of the L10711 is stable operation, which especially benefits customers performing X-ray CT scans. The built-in power supply and the improved cathode materials and design produce a stable X-ray focus spot size and stable output. The cathode design also makes the cathode easy to replace.

Another advantageous feature of the L10711 is its built-in high voltage power supply. Conventional open type X-ray sources must be connected to a separate power supply unit, which can cause problems such as additional noise and damage from discharges. Having a built-in power supply eliminates those problems and the need for periodic maintenance.

Two types of cathodes, one for high resolution! and the other for high intensity, are available for selection. With the high-resolution cathode, the L10711 produces a minimum resolution of 0.25 µm and a tube voltage range of 20-100 kV. With the high-intensity cathode, the L10711 produces 8 W of intensity, a minimum resolution of 0.8 µm, and a tube voltage range of 20-160 kV.
