For use with XR-100CR or XR-100T-CdTe (standard box with 1.5 inch extender) and the EXV9 (detector box with 9 inch extender)
In order to accommodate applications where the X-ray flux is too high for both the detector and the electronics that process the X-ray spectrum, Amptek has developed a “Collimator Kit” to collimate the primary X-ray beam.
The Collimator Housing can accommodate up to two Tungsten collimator disks that are placed inside a bayonet holder in front of the detector. By selecting the appropriate Tungsten collimator disks, the user can reduce the incoming X-ray flux and allow the detector and electronics to process the X-ray spectrum. Seven different Tungsten collimator disks are provided with different size holes in order to allow for a wide range of applications.
The EXVC Collimator Housing is made of stainless steel and can also be used inside a vacuum chamber.
The EXVC Collimator Kit Includes: Stainless steel Collimator Housing, Tripod and Mounting Plate (included when ordering for use with standard 1.5 inch extender box), Laser Pointer
7 Tungsten (W) Collimator Discs: 1 mm thick with 25 μm hole; 1 mm thick with 50 μm hole; 2 mm thick with 100 μm hole; 2 mm thick with 200 μm hole; 2 mm thick with 400 μm hole; 2 mm thick with 1000 μm hole; 2 mm thick with 2000 μm hole;
