FOLLOWING an intensive development programme, TMD, distributed by RFI Industries Pty Ltd , has recently launched a new design for its high power commercial TWTAs, which cover the range 1-40 GHz and are currently supplied to the EMC testing, scientific and medical markets.
The new design is now fully modular - i.e. all the functional boards are manufactured separately and plugged together. Also, potting of HV sections has been eliminated, avoiding time-consuming re-work. These design improvements have consolidated TMD's position as a world leader in TWTA design innovation, offering particularly unusual and unique products - many of which have proved to be unobtainable elsewhere - for a variety of markets and applications.
TMD's new development provides the following additional customer benefits:
* Improved reliability
* Improved maintainability
* supported by 24hr helpline
* Lower cost of manufacture (equates to a lower price for the user)
Several of the new style units have already been shipped to customers and are operating very successfully.
