High Frequency, High Voltage Components.
The Electronic Control System (ECS) has initially been developed as the control and driving source for the connected MBX Tubes. However, the ECS is not to be mistaken as a finished component the user must design the new system around. It is a platform, that can be adapted to the specific requirements of the intended implementation. The ECS captivates with its modular concept. This design approach is the basis for all components within the ECS and allows for scalability from 1 up to approximately 1500 high voltage switching channels as well as dedicated communication interfaces with minimal changes to the overall design resulting in a cost-effective modification should it be desired.
Regardless of the system setup, the cathode control section can deliver high voltage and high energy in pulses lasting from only a few microseconds to a couple of hundred milliseconds.

2. Ultra-Fast High Voltage Generator
The systems Anode Power Supply (APS) is a Ultra-Fast High Voltage Generator. Its modular design can be adapted to voltage levels ranging from 30 kV all the way up to 225 kV DC. The internal high switching frequency (ranging from 100 kHz to 200 kHz) of the main inverter circuit on the low voltage side facilitates the use of small components. This keeps the size of the APS small while delivering the desired power with voltage variations less than 1%.
The flexibility and the built-in features of the ECS make it not only the ideal driving source for the MBX Tubes, it can be used anywhere, where short pulses of several Kilovolts happen.
3. VEC Pulse Modulator for high energy nondestructive radiographic application
Pulsed power is a cornerstone of ground-breaking nuclear research, life-saving medical technologies and many essential industrial processes. Implementing improved pulse modulator technology will achieve vital gains in all these fields.
The flexibility of VEC Imaging’s pulse modulator approach makes it possible, where other technologies have not yet succeeded. Electrons, which are made available by e-guns and will be accelerated by means of linear accelerators, often become the (ultra) hard X-rays used in radiation therapy for the percutaneous treatment of carcinomas, for the control / screening of large loads using tomography, or for performance in quality assurance will. The energy content of the electron beam thus has a direct effect on the hardness or the energy of the prospects for X-ray quanta. If the energy content of the electrons can be freely selected, this also applies to the radiation prospects. The pulsed activation of the electron gun in connection with a design as an actively controllable triode (see above) also ensures that the energy of the electron radiation can not only be from scan to scan, but also from pulse to pulse.
