High Frequency, High Voltage Products
Electronic Control System
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 1400 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.
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.
