X-Ray Apparatus Mo, Complete


Complete Fully-featured, microprocessor-controlled device with x-ray tube Mo and goniometer designed for conducting a wide variety of experiments in x-ray physics.

The high-voltage system, x-ray tube and experiment chamber are all within a radiation-proof housing. German type approval as school x-ray apparatus and full-protection device. The type approval is also valid for further x-ray tubes (Fe, Cu, Ag, W, Au). The x-ray tubes are delivered completely adjusted and allow thus an easy and user-friendly exchange. Highest safety and operation comfort by an automatic door locking, which unlock the doors automatically, when no x-ray radiation is generated.

Two large displays show all relevant information on the current experiment. The tube voltage and tube current can be set in the ranges 0 to 35 kV and 0 to 1 mA respectively. The built-in rate meter including counter-tube voltage supply enables direct measuring in conjunction with a Geiger-Muller counter tube. The x-ray apparatus can also be connected to a PC via the USB-port (software included) for recording Bragg spectra. Alternative the two analogue outputs (counting rate and angular position) permit data acquisition using a chart recorder. The goniometer (554 831) enables precise setting of any angular position of the sensor and the target as well as coupled 2:1 sensor and target motion, both manual and automatic angular scans are possible. Two screened coaxial lead-ins and one free access duct provide access to set-ups in the experiment chamber, e.g. for connecting an x-ray energy detector. Device fully assembled and adjusted, ready for operation.
