Description

The Beam Position Monitor (BPM) is an electronics module with superior performance in a very small volume, On-board microstrip filters eliminate the need for costly tubular filters
GaAs switches provide superior button-to-button isolation and low insertion loss.

 

  • On-board microstrip filters eliminate the need for costly tubular filters
  • GaAs switches provide superior button-to-button isolation and low insertion loss
  • On-board synthesized local oscillator eliminates the problem of external oscillator signal distribution with power splitters
  • Automatic Gain Control range >90 dB provides optimum level for demodulator, independent of beam intensity, number of bunches
  • GaAs switches provide superior button-to-button isolation and low insertion loss
  • On-board synthesized local oscillator eliminates the problem of external oscillator signal distribution with power splitters
  • Automatic Gain Control range >90 dB provides optimum level for demodulator, independent of beam intensity, number of bunches
  • Phase-locked synchronous demodulation gives high linearity and noise suppression
  • Button signal range -70 dBm to +5 dBm at selected harmonic, any phase error tolerated
  • X and Y output +/- 10V
  • Single button sampling option gives first turn / single turn capability
  • RF-shielded chassis and accessories, see Accessories
