Okonite X-Ray cables are suitable for use on X-Ray apparatus for medical, industrial, research and control applications. They give trouble-free performance where pulse type high voltages are required. Although primarily used with medical diagnostic imaging equipment, Okonite X-Ray cables are also used with equipment in industrial applications as well as in research projects where high voltages, low power are required.
Typically, Okonite X-Ray cables are used to supply the anode and cathode voltages to the X-Ray tube. Since one terminal operates at a negative potential and the other at a positive potential, the voltage across the X-Ray tube is twice (2X) the rated voltage of the cable.
The two usual constructions are (1) three conductor (3/C) used on typical cathode cable installations, and (2) four conductor (4/C) utilized on installations with a grid controlled lead. Upon request, designs and constructions can be developed for special applications.
The minimum bending radius for permanent installation or flexing in service is four times the cable diameter.
Cable Core: Each cable contains two #15 AWG (19x) [1.65mm2] tinned copper filament wires insulated with heat sealed color coded polyester tape. Three conductor cores include two uninsulated #18 AWG [0.83mm2] flex stranded tinned copper wires. Four conductor cables include one #20 AWG (7x) [0.52mm2] copperweld conductor per ASTM - 45 insulated with heat sealed polyester and shielded with metalized red polyester. The four conductor core includes three uninsulated #18 AWG flex stranded tinned copper wires.
All conductors are twisted together into a composite assembly.
Core Shield: An extruded layer of semiconducting compound encapsulates the composite core assembly.
Insulation: Okonites premium high voltage EPR (ethylene propylene rubber) insulation is extruded in tandem with the semiconducting compound ensuring an intimate contaminant free bond between the layers
Shield: A semiconducting tape is applied over the insulation with a tinned copper wire braid. Minimum coverage indicated in table.
Jacket: A light gray flexible Okoseal (specially compounded PVC) jacket is extruded over the shield to provide additional mechanical strength and resistance to most oils and chemicals.
