The quality and performance of your system is only as good as its internal components - particularly when it comes to high voltage. Proper specification, selection, and integration of the high voltage X-ray source & detector determine power quality and reliability, and correlate closely with more stable and accurate X-ray production and sample data. If you are experiencing challenges in your industrial X-ray applications, careful consideration of the internal high voltage source may offer a simple solution.

From a world leader in precision power conversion, this engineer-to-engineer presentation covers the fundamentals of high voltage power and details how key performance elements affect X-ray generation and detection accuracy in different processes. Attendees will receive expert tips on optimal set-up and operating principles as well as guidance on selecting the right high voltage for the desired results.
