Hamamatsu Photonics Integrated Microfocus X-ray SourceHamamatsu Photonics32, Hamamatsu-city, Japan
The L10321 is a fully integrated, sealed microfocus x-ray unit, consisting of x-ray head, power supply, cooler and control electronics all within a single module. The unit can provide a minimum spot size of just 5 microns making the L10321 suitable for the detection of very small cracks, defects, contaminants and artefacts.
The output power of this new unit is a maximum of 20 Watts, and x-ray voltage is adjustable over the range from 20 KV to 100 KV, useful for the detection of different materials, from lower density plastics to metallic components. The new L10321 has been designed to give a very wide x-ray beam angle of almost 120 degrees, making this unit particularly useful for wide angle viewing and industrial x-ray CT applications.
For simple operation and low maintenance this x-ray source unit has dispensed with the requirement for a separate electronic control box, the L10321 is automatically operated from a PC using external control via a built-in RS232C interface. As all Hamamatsu microfocus x-ray units are air cooled they do not require oil emersion compared to conventional x-ray sources.
