MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanning has been used in hospitals for many years. The scanners use radio waves and magnetic fields to produce detailed imagery of soft tissue and bones. Now bench top MRIs have been developed to scan a variety of substances ranging from rock cores to fruit and vegetables. As with any image scanning equipment, power supply electrical noise can reduce the image resolution.
Bench top MRI scanners are now using TDK-Lambda’s Genesys™ programmable power supplies, primarily because of the wide range of products in the series. Output power levels of 750 to 15kW, output voltages from 0-6 to 0-1500V and output currents of up to 1,000A are available. All models share a common programming and feature set.
