Maximum Current

Hi,
I'm just working through the BS EN spec and I've noticed theres a maximum KV based on the thickness of the test item. Is there also a maximum Amperage?
Regards
Mike

Hi,
So if the KV is to be kept at a certain amount not to decrease contrast too much. What does effect does increase the amperage have in terms of image quality?
Regards
Mike

Its a question of the optimum mA/minutes at the lowest feasible kV to achieve the desired penetration. Time being money the exposure is kept as short as possible therefore work is usually carried out at the maximum rated mA.

Check out Chapter 8 of the below link.

I've noticed that its only BS EN that mentions a maximum KV, it isnt mentioned in ASME?
