DA1500-2, 3-Axis Gradient Amplifier
3-Axis 900A Precision Gradient Amplifier System
1500 VDC (MRI OEM adjustable down to 800V)
100% Digital D-SERIES™ Technology
Hi-Speed, Single Fiber-Optic Digital Command
Universal Utility Access
The DA1500-2 Gradient Amplifier from Performance Controls, Inc. (PCI) is a three-axis pulse width modulated amplifier system. The internal DC power supply output voltage can be configured by the MRI OEM and is protected by a redundant hardware/software interlock. The DA1500-2’s exceptionally low output noise, high bandwidth and rock-solid stability make it ideally suited for demanding power amplifier tasks found in laboratory and medical applications.
PCI’s new D-SERIES™ technology is the foundation for the DA1500-2’s many powerful features. Coupled with PCI’s new InSight™ software toolkit, D-SERIES™ technology gives systems engineers, sequence developers, and field service technicians unprecedented insight and capability for maximizing system performance, lowering overall system costs, and ensuring maximum system uptime.
The DA1500-2 Gradient Amplifier can be used in these and other applications:
- MRI magnetic field gradient control
- Particle beam magnetic steering control
- Any inductive load requiring precise control of large currents across a wide frequency range
