Non-destructive testing - Measurement and evaluation of the X-ray tube voltage - Part 1: Voltage divider method (ISO 16526-1:2011, IDT)

Status: Withdrawn · Replaced by: SS-EN ISO 16526-1:2020

This part of ISO 16526 specifies a method for the direct and absolute measurement of the average high voltage ofconstant potential (DC) X-ray systems on the secondary side of the high voltage generator. The intention is to checkthe 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 particularlythe penetration of materials and the contrast of X-ray images and also the requirements concerning the radiationprotection.
