For a plug-and-play X-ray tube solution, packaged items with built-in wiring and shielding can connect and start working from the go. They work for high-voltage and high-use applications and a wide range of other applications. Some basic information can help in deciding which options work best.
What Are Packaged Tubes?
Packaged X-ray tubes use metal housings, which acts as a radiation shield for temperature management, keeping them cool in high temperatures. The housings also serve to prevent arcing. These tubes are an easy-to-implement solution or OEM replacement parts for a variety of needs.
Packaged X-ray tubes offer multiple benefits, including:
- Easy installation – A prepackaged tube allows for power-supply plug-in for quick operation
- Built-in radiation shielding – This means there are no extra shielding measures required for operation
- Exemplary thermal properties – Typical potted tubes aren’t very resistant to high temperatures. With the highly-resistant metal housing, the tube won’t become compromised under the high-temperature conditions involved in many use cases.
- High-voltage isolation and more – All of these offer many benefits.
