Re: X-Ray Transformer - 50kV - FOR SALE

Original poster: DRIEBEN@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Ben, all,

50 kV seems a bit low voltage for an x-ray transformer.
Are you sure that this transformer was for x-ray applica-
tion? I think even dental x-ray units are usually around
70 kV at 5 to 10 mA. Most medical x-ray units are rated
at >100 kV and several hundred mAs. Just curious...
