The generator head is packaged in a stainless steel cabinet and houses a water-cooled YJ1600 magnetron, launching section, filament transformer, and arc detection circuitry. The power supply is a Spellman MG10PS208 switchmode, low ripple supply featuring constant current
control. A 25-pin, D-sub connector on the back of the supply provides a user interface to control the system. A 6.5kW isolator is supplied with the generator assembly to protect the magnetron from reflected energy. An N-type monitoring port on the water-load provides an r.f. measurement of reflected energy.
The GEN6KWCONTROLA/B is an optional control unit that interfaces with the power supply to control the generators output power. Two front panel potentiometers are provided to adjust the magnetrons anode voltage and anode current, which are displayed on two front panel meters. The warranty is 12 months for the system and 5000 hours (pro-rated) for the magnetron.
