Hamamatsu Photonics introduce a 100 kV microfocus X-ray source, the L10101, which is ideal for the inspection of metallic components used in electronic, industrial, aerospace and automotive industries.

The L10101 is a fully integrated, sealed microfocus X-ray unit, consisting of X-ray head, power supply, cooler and control electronics all contained within a single compact module. The unit can provide a minimum spot size of just 5 microns making the L10101 suitable for the detection of very small cracks, defects, contaminants and artefacts. The output power of this new unit is increased up to a maximum of 20 Watts, and X-ray voltage is adjustable over the range from 20 kV to 100 kV, which is useful for the detection of different materials, from lower density plastics to metallic components.

For simple operation and low maintenance the X-ray source unit has dispensed with the requirement for a separate electronic control box and the L10101 is automatically operated from a PC using external control via a built-in RS-232C interface. As all Hamamatsu microfocus X-ray units are air cooled, they do not require oil emersion compared to conventional X-ray sources, making them simple to integrate into an existing system.
