Low electrical noise power supplies selected for CT scanner

Posted by Dulcie on March 21, 2018

A CT (Computed Tomography) scan can provide more information about internal organs to a healthcare professional than a conventional X-Ray. Deflectors receive data as the X-Ray tube is rapidly rotated around the patient and from which powerful computers can generate high resolution images. Due to the sensitivity of the images, power supply output noise has to be kept at a minimum, which requires specialised knowledge.

Recognising that TDK-Lambda’s Power+ Solutions team has extensive experience with low noise medical power supplies, a leading medical equipment manufacturer approached them. As with previous programmes the two companies had worked on, a bespoke multiple output power supply was developed quickly, using previous platform designs. The objectives of product performance, support and price were all met.
