Solid State Microwave Generators (SSMWG) can be precisely controlled and do not exhibit the aging induced power losses that can occur with magnetrons. They are the most advanced tool for industrial and scientific applications.
The advantages of semiconductor-based microwave generators are obvious. On the one hand, a magnetron is no longer required, which has to be operated with a high voltage, and on the other hand, the frequency of the SSMWG can be changed, which makes it possible to achieve homogenization of the electric field strength, for example in a chamber. Furthermore, the SSMWG can independently monitor the returning power and automatically search for the frequency with the lowest returning power.
Depending on the frequency, the SSMWG has an output power of 0-500W or 0-1000W, which it can emit in 2 different modes:
In Continuous Wave (CW) mode, the output power is delivered continuously and can be precisely adjusted in 1W steps to the desired value. This allows products to be heated reproducibly, for example to a desired temperature.
In pulse mode, the output power is not continuously delivered. The setting of the pulse duration as well as the duty cycle offer many possibilities for use in different processes, such as the generation of plasma. The fully automatic operation is controlled by real-time device monitoring with a user-friendly control panel.
The SSMWGs work perfectly with a water cooling system, ensuring reliable 24/7 operation.
