Hello All,

Our filament lifetime on the Rigaku Generators Seems to be a lot shorter
than it should be.  The average lifetime is a little over 600 hours.
What is the optimum power settings for extended lifetime?  We are
currently running at 50kv 100ma with a bias if 20 -30 %.  If anyone has
any suggestions please let me know.
