X-ray tube power supply ShastaThe Shasta series X-ray tube power supply features a robust design that has been optimized to power grounded filament X-ray tubes from Oxford Instruments, yet its versatility enables it to power virtually any grounded filament X-ray tube.

Utilizing closed loop emission control circuitry that delivers low ripple, Shasta provides highly regulated beam current and high stability resulting in superior performance. Local and remote analog control enables convenient operation in setting voltage & emission current. Optional digital interface, USB or RS232, is also available as is grid focus control.

Shasta's compact design makes it ideal for a variety of OEM applications, including:

  • X-ray fluorescence, XRF
  • X-ray diffraction, XRD
  • Medical Imaging
  • Industrial Inspection
  • Non-destructive testing, NDT


The Shasta series of X-Ray power supplies offers many benefits including:

  • Compact Design
  • Adjustable Emission Current
  • Voltage & Current Programming
  • Safety Interlock
  • Optional Grid Focus Control
  • UL, CE & TUV Certified
