HIGH-VOLTAGE GENERATOR CIRCUIT, CIRCUIT FUNCTION DISCRIPTION 1.1
Refer to figure 2-2. The control is connected to the high-voltage (tension)
transformer via two factory-supplied interconnecting cables. One cable is terminated
into a heavy three-pin connector, J23, supplying primary power to the high-tension
transformer. The other cable is terminated into a twelve-pin connector, J22, which
supplies the control with information from the high tension-transformer. J22 also
transmits information from the control concerning tube selection and technique to the
a. In addition to the high-tension transformer, the high-voltage generator circuit
includes the following.
Thyrites for over-voltage protection.
Filament transformers for the over-table and under-table X-ray tubes.
Changeover-switch motor and switch assemblies.
Socket wells for both X-ray tubes.
All components are housed in a large oil-filled metal tank.
