X-Band Coaxial 9.3 GHz Pulsed Magnetron: VMX3045

February 4, 2016

3045A magnetron is a high power microwave oscillator in which the potential energy of an electron cloud near the cathode is converted into RF energy in a series of cavity resonators. The VMX3045 magnetron delivers high peak and average RF power for use in medical or industrial applications.

The VMX3045 is a small and light weight magnetron that can be easily installed in numerous platforms. The small form factor is ideally suited for mobile applications or in systems where space is at a premium.

The VMX3045 will mount directly into new or existing sockets and can be operated under various pulse and input conditions to accommodate a wide range of operating requirements.
