Non-destructive testing - Measurement and evaluation of the X-ray tube voltage - Part 1: Voltage divider method
SS-EN ISO 16526-2:2020
This European standard specifies a method for the direct and absolute measurement of the average high voltage of
constant potential (DC) X-ray systems on the secondary side of the high voltage generator. The intention is to check
the correspondence with the indicated high voltage value on the control unit of the X-ray system.
This method is applied to assure a reproducible operation of X-ray systems because the voltage influences particularly
the penetration of materials and the contrast of X-ray images and also the requirements concerning the radiation
