Flashcards in RT 205 X-Ray Tube Components Deck (10):
where the alternating current comes from to power the circuit
when you push the button to start an exposure this switch closes to start the exposure.
this is where you adjust the kVp for the exposure.
this part of the circuit stops the exposure.
this transformer bumps the voltage up so that the x-ray tube has very high voltage to make the electrons have enough energy to form x-rays.
Step up transformer
this makes the current only go in one direction through the x-ray tube.
Four diode rectification circuit
this variable resistor adjusts the current going to the filament.
filament circuit variable resistor
this transformer steps the voltage down and therefore the current up.
this is where the x-rays are created.
