The PXS10 High-Resolution MicroFocus 130kV X-Ray Source enables high performance internal product inspections on the micrometer level, showing clear X-ray images of IC wire bonds, BGAs, and other electronic components. The PXS10 X-Ray source combines the end window X-ray tube, high-voltage power supply, and controller in one compact package powered from a 24 VDC source. 

  • Small, round spot optimized over the range of operating voltage and power for distortion-free, sharp images.
  • 6 micron spot at 4 watts for high-resolution imaging.
  • 14mm spot to window spacing provides high geometric magnification.
  • X-ray tube, power supply, and control electronics in one compact package make system integration easy.
  • Tube head can be rotated +90° or -90° relative to position shown (see Figure 1 of Datasheet)
  • Auto-conditioning ramps source up slowly as required by the time the source has been off
  • Digital interface allows access to diagnostics and operating logs. Source can be controlled with the supplied Windows™ graphical user interface or using the included Product Interface Specification

Recommended for:

  • Manual and automated inspection of printed circuit boards and electronic devices.
  • Nondestructive test requiring high-resolution imaging of metal and plastic parts.
  • Micro-CT imaging for industrial and life sciences applications.

 Certifications:

  • CE Directives 73/23/EEC (Low Voltage) and 89/336/EEC (EMC). Includes EN 61010-1, EN 55011, EN 50081-1, EN 61000-4.
  • UL 61010-1, 2nd Edition, CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 61010-1, 2nd Edition
