Four Channel Piezo Driver and Sensor Board for MTCA Computer Systems. Used in large numbers in beam control systems (cavity tuning) of high energy accelerators e.g. DESY XFEL, CERN ..., Advanced Laser Optics Experiments


Proven proven technology in large accelerator laboratories (DESY, XFEL, CERN, KEK, Pohang)). The right multichannel module for advanced scientific instruments provides high level of system capabilities. Piezotechnics is the manufacturer of the four channel PZT4 board.  It is fully compliant with MicroTCA.4, an open computer standard of the new century. MicroTCA  provide full redundancy functions and hot-swap capability. MicroTCA has a proven track record for the machines control in large distributed plants of high-energy physics laboratories (CERN, DESY, ...). REGUlatorMTCA is also ready for demanding industrial production systems:

  •   MicroTCA offers ideal conditions for the realization of multi-processor systems

  •   MicroTCA has a proven track record in large-scale physics experiments (DESY, CERN, KEK, Pohang). It is attractive for critical industrial applica- tions.

  •   MicroTCA features fully redundant system configurations including power budgeting and hot-swap

  •   MicroTCA provides the high availability necessary for efficient industrial production systems specifically in complex production networks. Availability reaches
    ve 9s: 0.99999, which is equivalent to a downtime of 5 minutes per year.

  •   Open standard: A whole range of manufacturer is employed for almost any application. A wide range of computer modules has been developed so far. 


REGUlatorMTCA – Product Description and Short Spec

The REGUlatorMTCA board allows simultaneously true control of up to four piezo elements (actuators or sensors). It is fast: The small signal bandwidth reaches 80 kHz (for 1 μF load). The board has DAC and ADC for fast control and monitoring up to 200 kSPS per channel. Fully compatible with MicroTCA REGUlatorMTCA allows to integrate piezo actuators in very complex plants such as: Semiconductor production (e.g. gas flow controllers), automation industry, research & development, laser and RF cavity tuning in industry and research and many more.
