Computed Tomography (CT) was originally developed for medical applications but is now widely used to scan passenger luggage and air cargo. Unlike traditional 2D X-Ray systems, CT produces 3D images which can be rotated for a thorough examination by security staff.
Faced with complex power requirements, engineers working on new CT scanners asked their local TDK-Lambda sales contact for advice. High power outputs of 7.5V at 1000W, 48V at 1200W, 24V at 300W and two 5V low power outputs were needed. The suggestion of a combination of an HWS1000-7 supply and a 1500W four-output QM7 modular power supply was accepted and designed in. Both the HWS and QM series offer long warranties based on conservative component ratings, ideal for reliable, multi-year, round-the-clock operation in key airport locations.
