What is wrong with a Bruker S4 explorer Generator ???

Post by jaramillo » 29 Mar 2018, 00:37

We are back, and the question still is how get Bruker S4 explorer K570 Generator to work at 50Kv-20 mA ???
We have been working with the S4 during the last couple of years, running it at 38Kv and up to 26mA, but as soon as we try to run it at more than 38Kv the Thiodul voltage exceeds the 480votls limit and the generator turns off. The thiodul voltages are allways higher than the Bruker manual says, for example at 20Kv and 5 mA the thioduls is 198-200 volts, while according to the manual it should be 134-136Volts. I believe that somebody should have to have experimented a similar situation CAN ANY ONE HELP ??
Best regards
Jose
