Kowolux X6/X6eco

The Kowolux X6 and X6eco High Intensity X-Ray Film Viewers with their 15″ x 10.6″ (380 x 270 mm) Viewing Windows and other design features similar to other Kowolux X series viewers are the largest of the Kowolux X series illuminators.

Designed for high end NDT use, the X6 and X6 Eco are suitable for evaluating large format X-ray films with higher density from castings and other complex parts and components. These viewers feature the latest POWER-LED Technology, providing magnificent white light over the whole control range. The higher contrast helps inspection operators to find defects and discontinuities easily. Even with very dark films, the High luminance makes it possible to view without destroying them.

Due to the higher efficiency of LED’s, heat generation and power consumption is reduced by 80% when compared to conventional viewers with halogen lamps. With a life span of up to 40,000 hours, frequent bulb replacement is a thing of the past, making it a cost effective choice
