The PAX Family was designed with voice of the customer in mind. You told us you didn't want to be building with nuts, bolts and screws - that you wanted to simply snap together pre-aligned modules. We listened.

Known for their stability and long life characteristics, the PAX Family of pre-aligned, integrated modules offer "plug-and-play" functionality, dramatically reducing OEMs' field service costs and down-time by eliminating cumbersome optical adjustments in the field.

These compact, integrated solutions contain the flash lamp, trigger circuit, and power supply in an EMI-suppressant enclosure. Available in two arc orientations, the PAX's pre-aligned arc position allows for "plug and play" field replacement, eliminating alignment time and reducing OEMs' costs and machine down time.

The PAX Family consists of the PAX-6, PAX-10, and the newest PAX-10M. The PAX Family utilizes Excelitas' high stability short arc Xenon flash lamps.
