An X-ray application required 35 kV for the x-ray, together with several other voltages for feeding other parts of the equipment (as filament current, anode rotation and other auxiliary). Available space for the power equipment was limited.
Powerbox developed a 35 kV high voltage generator where the input converter also supplied a bus voltage feeding converters for all other loads.
This architecture reduced the number of converters required, which in turn:
- Reduced space requirement, due to fewer converters
- Reduced heat dissipation due to fewer conversion steps, which in turn further reduced space requirement
- Increased system availability due to fewer units involved
- Optimized system cost by reducing both the number of converters and the space required

The challenge: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. The magnetic field generated by the coil is in a range of 2 to 4 Tesla, which is a huge magnetic field with direct effect on some of the […]
Underwater cables for internet traffic covers long distances and repeaters amplify to keep speed, this demands highly reliable power supplies.
With the multiplication of products transmitting radio signals, it becomes very complex for medical equipment manufacturers to ensure their systems are secured, without interfering or been interfered by other equipment.
