Radyne Corporation, An Inductotherm Group Company, unveiled its 5KW, 100-400kHz future-concept induction power supply, the Versapower® - Xtreme™ VX5H, at THERMPROCESS/GIFA 2011 in Germany. The concept system is based on Radyne’s new Digital-iQ™ Control Technology, which allows ease of use, advanced communication, and state-of-the-art control and programming features. Radyne intends to release the Versapower - Xtreme line to the market in the fourth quarter of 2011 in North America and to the rest of the world in mid-2012.
The Versapower - Xtreme complements Radyne’s existing Versapower induction power-supply line. The system’s technology is 100% digital, which allows it to ramp from 0-100% of rated power in less than 500 microseconds. The first in the lineup will be 5, 10, 25 and 50 kW units with a frequency range of 100-400kHz. The 20-60kHz and 50-200kHz lines will follow in 2012.
