SOLID STATE TECHNOLOGY
IT ALL STARTED WITH THE SPLIT CORE
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
This is ScandiNova’s key strength. Our unique technology breakthroughs have changed the rules of the industry. In cooperation with leading research institutes, we have generated unrivalled RMS pulse stability within 8 ppm (0.0008%), for example.
Today, our ingenious solid-state modulator design is used throughout the world. And it all began way back in 1995 when the search for perfect pulse power led our R&D team to the split-core transformer – the essential condition for successful solid state. Little did they know then what the split-core-generated, high-voltage pulse would lead to.
BREAKTHROUGH OVERCAME TECHNICAL CHALLENGES
Safely generating high-voltage pulses is a considerable technological challenge. Since the operating environment is hazardous for humans, modulator design is put under enormous pressure. Due to this restriction, everyone within the industry was forced to accept disadvantages, compromises and high levels of maintenance – until we altered the rules with an innovative breakthrough built on three principal technology concepts: Split Core™, Parallel Switching™ and Pulse to Pulse Control™.
SPLIT CORE™ – THE SECRET OF SCANDINOVA
Industry has for many years struggled to gain control of the pulse – to generate the exact amplitude and length essential for precise results – and to achieve this time after time without variation.
ScandiNova has the answer to this much sought-after need; regulating the power supply via a feedback loop that continuously measures and controls the feed. This solution generates perfect precision – the exact pulse amplitude plus the exact pulse length.
And it’s only possible thanks to Split Core™ technology. Furthermore, regulation is fast, flexible and can easily be altered without calibration and testing.
There are several intellectual properties protecting the ScandiNova System AB technology, both for the complete system, the power supplies and the transformer technology.
