Excillum launches the MetalJet E1+ 160 kV – boosting X-ray flux with 1 kilowatt microfocus performance
The Excillum MetalJet E1+ X-ray source is our latest innovation, built on the platform of the MetalJet E1. The new MetalJet E1+ delivers 1 kW microfocus performance with submicron stability and outstanding reliability. It is designed for high-throughput, 100% duty-cycle operation with up to once-per-year preventive maintenance cycles.
At 1000 watts, the new MetalJet E1+ delivers 17 times more X-ray flux across a broad spectral range compared to a 30 W conventional tungsten-solid-anode microfocus source with the same 30 µm spot size. In the spectral range of 24-29 keV where the indium and tin characteristic emission lines are present, the flux advantage is as high as 100 times.
The MetalJet E1+ is built for 24/7 continuous performance and high-throughput, 100% duty-cycle operation with up to once-per-year preventive maintenance cycles. This eliminates the need for frequent filament changes as required by traditional tubes. This makes it an ideal source for any microfocus application requiring shorter exposure times, higher throughput, or better signal to noise ratio. And, the MetalJet E1+ as any of Excillum’s X-ray sources, is designed for straight-forward integration into systems.
Today, there is no alternative in the market that provides MetalJet E1+-level of brightness and is designed for 24/7 use in production lines. It can be a true game-changer for inspection and quality assurance in semiconductor, electronics and battery manufacturing.
