M-SERIES

M200 / M200D

Magnetron Modulator. Designed to offer a high power pulse modulator for our customers most demanding system designs. This highest power magnetron modulator is designed to handle magnetrons in the 2.5 MW to 5 MW range but can also handle some of the smaller klystron models. M200 is available with single or dual energy (M200D). Our dual-energy models are for applications where there is a need to switch between two different energy levels.

RF peak power: 2.5 – 5 MW
Pulse voltage: 40 – 75 kV
Pulse current: 30 – 250 A
Modulator peak: 14 MW
Modulator avg.: 16 kW

Pulse control leads to new possibilities.

All new ScandiNova pulse modulators and pulse generators are equipped with a user-friendly and modern control system for calibration, diagnostics and adjustments. The system offers a wide range of different shape modifications. Amplitude, pulse width and frequency can easily be changed and visualized on the user friendly GUI. The system also provides an overview of status for key functionality/components, Trig, Interlocks and Real-time event log. With EtherCAT remote control (option) it is also possible to set different voltage levels for each individual pulse.

The control system for the Magnetron modulators (M-series) is operated by a PC interface.

The M200 platform has been designed to offer a high power pulse modulator for our customers most demanding system designs. This highest power magnetron modulator is designed to handle magnetrons in the 2.5 MW to 5 MW range but can also handle some of the smaller klystron models. This modulator provides unparalleled performance and ease of integration and use by customers in demanding environments. The M200 modulators have become a compelling choice for radar and defense applications where mobility demands requires reduced size and weight.

The ScandiNova M200 modulator is an outstanding choice to meet your most critical needs

Key features.

  • Reliable modular design results in a modulator that provides an extremely high level of operator and technician safety due to low primary voltage levels. These low voltages also eliminates most component failures due to reduced thermal and electrical stress.
  • Lower cost of ownership due to high electrical efficiency, removal of expensive consumables that need regular maintenance and fewer unscheduled stops. The high electrical efficiency allows cooling costs to be approximately half of a line type pulse forming network modulator.
  • Precise control over the pulse shape and amplitude allows users to configure the modulator to get optimal performance from their transmitter system. Both peak and average power delivery can be adjusted over time to meet changing system requirements.
  • A wide array of digital data interfaces are supported allowing system parameters to be modified and operating data to be communicated to the customer. This allows for easy system setup, performance monitoring and data archival.
