  • News

Uppsala, Sweden, January 11, 2017. ScandiNova Systems AB has received an order of four high precision Pulse Modulators from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, to be installed at their redesigned LINAC facility in Troy New York, USA.

The LINAC facility at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) was originally built in the early 1960’s and has been used for academic research in Nuclear Physics. The LINAC structure itself is now being redesigned and rebuilt including a complete replacement of all of their pulse modulators.

The order consists of four K500 Modulators. K500 is ScandiNova’s flagship and largest pulse modulator adapted to klystrons operating up to 100 MW RF peak power, with very high reliability and leading pulse-pulse stability, all of which is made possible by the company’s patented Split Core and parallel Switching Solid State Technology.

– We are honoured to receive this prestigious order from one of the top universities in U.S, and to contribute to new findings within the research area . Our collaboration with RPI has further strengthened our product offering as well as our leading position within Pulsed Power Systems, says Fredrik Mella, CEO ScandiNova Systems.
