New Method of HV Packaging and Thermal Management Results in Higher Power Levels
HAUPPAUGE, New York-September 29, 2006 -- Spellman High Voltage Electronics Corporation (Hauppauge, NY) announces the expansion of the Monoblock® series of X-Ray sources. New methods of high voltage packaging and thermal management now allow Monoblock® X-Ray sources to power integrated X-Ray tubes at voltages of up to 200kV and power levels up to 1000 watts. Spellman's series of Monoblock® X-ray sources eliminates the problematic external high voltage cabling by integrating the high voltage power supply, the filament power supply and X-Ray tube into one compact, easy to use package.
Spellman has leveraged two decades of experience designing rotating medical CT generators to now offer Monoblock® solutions for a wide variety of rotating security screening and explosive detection systems, CT-based imaging scanners, food and fill level inspection systems, non destructive testing devices and bone densitometers.
The Monoblock® can be designed in a wide variety of geometries with beam shape, focal spot size and other critical parameters customized for a particular application.
Spellman's Monoblock® X-Ray sources are used daily to power thousands of Carry-On Baggage, Checked Baggage, and Cargo Scanners in airports around the world, in addition to TSA-approved explosive detection systems. Spellman continues to collaborate with leading security screening device manufacturers, innovating the next generation of X-Ray Screening technology, thus contributing to secure aviation transportation.
