EME Guard XS Radar

MVG Launches the EME Guard XS Radar

to Monitor and Alert Workers Exposed to Short Pulsed Signals

LEARN MORE
Continuously detecting fast varying signals, such as the pulsed signals emitted by radars, has always been a challenge. Thanks to a specific fast sampling mode, the EME Guard XS Radar provides efficient real-time evaluations of the exposure level to workers operating near radar antennas. This new Personal Protection Monitor (PPM) detects any pulse, thus alerting users as soon as the reference level is exceeded.

Covering the wide range of 80MHz-30GHz, the EME Guard XS Radar is a lightweight, portable tool that can be used under both laboratory/test chamber conditions or in “on the field” conditions to alert the exposure to radar emissions.

Since its successful introduction in 2014, the EME Guard XS has established itself as the favorite PPM of RF Safety professionals and has been widely adopted in the telecom industry. The launch of the EME Guard XS Radar completes MVG’s portfolio of PPM products, offering a cost-efficient tool to meet the specific RF Safety needs of Radar Engineers/Technicians and other Military and Aviation personnel.

New Generation Full-Rack 1U AC/DC Programmable Power Supply Series Delivers 5kW Output Power with Advanced Features/Functions

New Generation Full-Rack 1U AC-DC Programmable Power Supply Series

 

TDK Corporation announces the introduction of the TDK-Lambda high power density 1U  . This air-cooled product, which is the first to be offered in a new generation platform, brings a higher level of performance to the TDK-Lambda AC/DC Programmable Power Supply product portfolio at a competitive price.

Utilizing embedded microprocessor technology, the GENESYSTM next-generation product platform provides advanced performance and functionality well suited for the Laboratory/R&D environment and addresses broad market segments including Aerospace Test & Measurement, Automotive Component, Module and System Test, Semiconductor Fabrication & Component Test, Industrial and Renewable/Alternative Energy.

Carrying a five (5) year warranty and built into a 1U (1.75”) high, 19” (483mm) wide, and 17.5” (444.5mm) deep rack-mount mechanical profile, the GENESYSTM  5kW Power Supply Series offers the highest power density (35% higher) and, at 15.4lbs (7kg), the lightest weight in the industry (less than half that of comparable products).

Five models are currently available from 10V to 600V with outputs of 10V/500A20V/250A30V/170A300V/17A and 600V/8.5A with conversion efficiencies up to 93%. These units can operate in Constant-Current (CC), Constant-Voltage (CV) as well as the newly offered Constant-Power (CP) and internal resistance simulation. Three-phase AC Input options include 208VAC (170~265VAC), 400VAC (342~460VAC) or a wide-range 480VAC (342~528VAC) and have built-in active Power Factor Correction (0.94 typical) with cooling fan speed control (for reduced audible noise and extended life).

In addition to doubling the power density over the existing 2U Genesys™ 5kW Programmable Power Supply Series, the GENESYSTM  5kW platform offers other significant advancements. These include a high contrast, wide viewing angle multi-segment front panel LCD display (with user controllable brightness and dimming functions for improved readability) that has five embedded multi-functional Power Supply Setup menus that address Digital Communication, Protective Functions, Operating Configuration, System Configuration, and System Triggering. These embedded menus offer new adjustable user-selectable functions including internal resistance simulation, Constant-Power operation and Slew-Rate control of Output Voltage/Current. Arbitrary waveform profiles, such as vehicle battery start-up simulation, of up to 100 steps can also be generated and stored in four  on-board memory cells and can be recalled and activated via the front panel display embedded menus or Remote Digital communication.

Standard safety features include user-selectable Safe-Start/Auto Re-Start, Last Setting Memory and various built-in protective functions. With Safe-Start configured, the power supply returns to its last operational settings after a power interruption but with the output disabled. With Auto Re-Start, the power supply returns to the last used operation settings after a power interruption. Last Setting Memory retains settings such as the Output voltage/current, Output ON/OFF, Output OVP/UVL/UVP level, Fold-Back (CV or CC), Output Over-Current Limit (OCL) and Start-Up mode (SAFE or AUTO) at each AC input turn-off sequence. Built-in protective functions include Output Over-Voltage Protection (OVP), Output Under-Voltage Limit (UVL), Output Under-Voltage Protection (UVP), Fold-Back protection (FOLD) for CV or CC mode, Output Over-Current Limit (OCL) and Over-Temperature protection (OTP).

A new Advanced Parallel Master/Slave system, unique to TDK-Lambda, allows for improved multi-unit system performance (Output ripple/noise and dynamic response) where up to four GENESYSTM  units can be connected in parallel and automatically configured by detection of the parallel data-link cable connections between units, with the Master unit being the single point for programming, measurement and status of system load current.

All model functions can be programmed locally via the menu-driven front panel display or remotely using one of the three built-in standard SCPI-compliant Multi-Drop Remote Digital communication interfaces (where up to 31 units may be controlled in an addressed RS-485 Multi-Drop configuration). These interfaces include the LAN (LXI 1.5), USB (2.0) and RS-232/RS-485 and an optional SCPI-compliant Multi-Drop GPIB(IEEE 488.2) Remote Digital communication interface (all of whose communication protocols and signals are compatible with the entire TDK-Lambda Genesys™ Series). Also included is a full selection of software instrument drivers, a Waveform-Creator and an Advanced Virtual Front Panel GUI.

A built-in standard Remote Isolated Analog Program/Monitor/Control Interface (with 600V isolation) is also provided with new functions such as Output control pins (for activation of external devices for polarity reversal/load disconnect), Trigger-In/Trigger-Out pins (for synchronization), Enable control (with user-selectable polarity) and higher accuracy Program/Monitor signals.

Two new GENESYSTM   mechanical options are a Blank Front Panel and a Dust Cover. The Blank Front Panel is available for applications where the front panel display and controls are not required and only remote interfacing (Digital/Analog) is needed. The Dust Cover has a removable snap-in filter (for easy maintenance) and is provided for dusty air environment applications.

The GENESYSTM  5kW Power Supply Series has Safety certifications to IEC/EN/UL/cUL 60950-1 with CE marking in accordance with the Low Voltage, EMC (IEC/EN61204-3; industrial environment) and RoHS2.

For more information about the TDK-Lambda 1U Full-Rack GENESYSTM   5kW AC/DC Programmable Power Supply Series, please visit the TDK-Lambda Americas Programmable & High Voltage website and fill out an online Information Request @  Sales,
