What are the 6 Components of the Primary Circuit
- Main Power Switch
- Circuit breakers
- Timer circuit
- Primary side of the step-up transformer
- Line compensator
is the PRIMARY SIDE High or Low Voltage
what kind of current dose the PRIMARY SIDE function on?
DC o AC
Three main components of an x-ray imaging system
- Operating console
- High speed generator
Radiographer controls autotransformer through ______
Determining voltage step up or step down
How many turns between each and how close you are to the end
purpose of line compensator
Measures the voltage and adjusts to precisely 220 V
primary side of the step up transformer controls _____
Parts of the secondary circuit
- mAs meter
- Secondary coil of the step-up transformer
- Rectification circuit
- x-ray tube
Parts of filament circuit
- Step-down transformer
- Filament ammeter
Filament circuit controls
current on the tube
The induction of an electromotive current by varying the motion of a conductor across a magnetic field or by a change in magnetic flux in a magnetic field.
In the filament circuit where is the voltage supplied from
Voltage is supplied by the autotransformer.
first circuit produces a current and the motion Varying current supplied to Primary coil Induces current in secondary coil
the primary side is the side Supplied with AC. and Is the “input” portion of the transformer
_________is one whose secondary voltage (VS) is greater than its primary voltage (VP). This kind of transformer "steps up" the voltage applied to it.
A step-up transformer
__________is one whose secondary voltage (VS) is less than its primary voltage (VP). This kind of transformer "steps down" the voltage applied to it
A step-down transformer
