The Spectrum Tube Carousel Power Supply offers a considerable improvement in safety, convenience, and tube life over conventional systems. It consists of a power supply and tube storage unit which holds a series of spectrum tubes filled with various gases for spectral inspection and measurement.
In this Carousel version, up to eight tubes are loaded into the power supply’s tube carousel and the tube to be energized is selected by rotating the carousel until the required tube reaches the energizing station.
The spectrum tubes offer extended life by having no internal electrodes and are protected against accidental breakage by a hard polymer shell. The Carousel Power Supply’s electrical parts are enclosed and a magnetic interlock system prevents application of the energizing voltage to the tube contacts unless a tube is correctly inserted. Spectrum tubes are sold separately.
