After the very successful launch of the XR20 series for foil measurements up to 1 mm, the serial production of the bigger brother XR40 has already started. It enables the measurement of strips up to 15mm aluminium or 1.5mm steel in rolling mills or processing lines.

Decades of experiences from MESACON Messelektronik was used in the development of the XR-series to ensure a continuous improvement of these products. Main focus of these series is the already well known measuring accuracy, coupled with a very process stability and durability of the X-ray sources for usage in industrial environments.

The connection of the XR-control is not realized analogue; it is completely digital via EtherCAT. Nearly all electromagnetic influences can be eliminated. The cooling of the X-ray tube, which might cause disturbances in many systems of other manufactures, is realized indirect at the XR40. The heat of the whole X-ray generator is deflected by a heat transfer cooling.

In order to achieve always the best measuring results, the X-ray generator can be recalibrated automatically by an internal sample magazine. The used sample magazine is designed to be reflected all measurable thickness ranges therein.
