C-Band Coaxial 5.7 kW Pulsed Magnetron: VMC3109

February 4, 2016

3109A 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 MC3109 magnetron delivers high peak and average RF power for use in medical or industrial applications.

The VMC3109 will mount directly into new and existing sockets and can be operated under various pulse and input conditions to accommodate wide ranging operating requirements. In addition to high power, the VMC3109 provides excellent frequency stability, low jitter and extremely long life.
