AD6/600 – TWT PSU – 10kV – 5 Collectors
This device is used in the space field to manufacture Traveling Wave Tubes (TWT).
It is composed of:
- A Helix source that could supply up to 10kV
- Five collectors sources
- An Anode0/Grid source that can supply up to 9 kV wrt to the cathode voltage
- A Filament/Heater source
- A Wehnelt source
- An Anode1 source
With this new generation of PSU, the meterings and controls are done on the front panel in using the touch screen or in using the Ethernet port. It is possible to control the PSU in remote for all commands and to get all the telemetries from the Ethernet port.
A safety system ensures the fault that can occur during the TWT manufacturing (defocus for instance).
