All SITEX and SITEXS units contain a rod anode. This is the focal spot that is outside the SF6-insulated high-voltage generator. As maximum advantages are derived from this ideal configuration, for one and the same thickness, the volume of lead required for standard radiation protection is considerably reduced.
Consequently, the achieved reduced weight makes possible further investments in the quality and general improvement of the level of performance (robustness, cooling, accessories etc).
We can confirm that SITEX and SITEXS are among the lightest portable X-ray generators available on the market.
