The PXS5-928 Microfocus X-Ray Source is specifically designed high-resolution imaging applications such as manual inspection of printed circuit boards and semiconductor devices, non-destructive tests requiring moderate to high-resolution imaging of metal and plastic parts, and micro-CT imaging for industrial and life sciences applications.

  • Small, round spot optimized over the range of operating voltage and power for distortion-free images
  • 4 micron spot for maximum resolution imaging
  • 6 mm spot-to-window spacing provides maximum geometric magnification in a sealed source
  • X-Ray tube, power supply, and control electronics in one compact package make system integration easy
  • Auto-conditioning ramps source up slowly as required by the time source has been off
  • Digital Interface allows user access to diagnostics and operating logs. Source can be operated with the supplied Windows™ graphical user interface or using the included Software Interface Specification.
