Los Alamos National Laboratory chooses point2point

Los Alamos National Laboratory

World famous Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico, USA has again chosen PPM Test to supply RF over fibre to support their work. LANL have chosen to use multiple DC-coupled links which, unlike AC-coupled links, use 14-bit sampling to digitise the RF signal before transmission over fibre. This digitisation allows point2point DC links to support low frequency ranges. Continue reading

Loughborough University select point2point for exploding wire research

Loughborough University building

The Plasma and Pulsed Power Group (P3G) at Loughborough University have selected PPM’s point2point RF over fibre links for their research into exploding wire physics and technology. During the testing, a shock wave, an explosion and a high intensity light source are created which are passed onto a point2point RF over fibre link for transmission. Continue reading

Current Probe vs. I-dot Sensor

I DOT sensor

A current probe is not really a current sensor, because it does not respond to direct current. A current probe is designed to sense and integrate the first derivative of the current – or, more precisely, the magnetic field associated with the current being measured. A current probe is a self-integrating I-DOT sensor. In contrast, an I-DOT sensor can correctly be called a current sensor. Continue reading

SINTEF chooses point2point RF over fibre for high-power research

SINTEF Energy Lab

The Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research (SINTEF) in Norway has chosen point2point RF over fibre links to support its high-power research. SINTEF plans to use the point2point DC-modulated links for a variety of applications, including monitoring three-phase systems in the grid and industrial applications using inverter-fed motors. Continue reading
