Mini-X2 X-Ray Tube Software

Compatibility: The Mini-X2 control software and the API are compatible with Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7/8/10, both 32 and 64-bit. However, Amptek highly recommends using the Professional version of any Microsoft operating system (Windows 7 Pro, Windows 10 Pro, etc.)

Mini-X2 Control Software v1.0.0.10 – updated Jan. 15, 2019

The Mini-X2 software is only for use with the USB controlled Amptek Mini-X2 X-Ray Tube. It will NOT control other X-Ray tubes. It is a simple control panel that enables the user to change voltage and current, and to turn the tube on and off.

Mini-X2 Application Programming Interface (API)

The API is used to write custom software to control the Mini-X2. Examples with source code in C++ and VB are provided. This is not needed to operate the Mini-X2 using the Mini-X2 Control Software, it is only for custom application development.
