USED SEREN IPS Industrial Power Systems MC2 RF Automatic Matching Network Controller

The MC2 matching network controller powers and controls the operation of the Seren IPS Inc. AT-Series automatic impedance matching networks, provides operatoraccessible controls, a visual display of matching network status, and a control interface to the user’s processing system. Other MC2 features are listed below: 

  • ½ rack 2U high package 
  • 110VAC or 220VAC AC mains, field selectable 
  • Bright, easy to read 4 line vacuum fluorescent display, capable of displaying matching network status, RF power supply status, RF or DC probe voltage, phase and magnitude error signals 
  • Front panel controls for capacitor positioning, mode selection, and programming 
  • Scaleable forward and reflected power metering (requires interface connection to RF power supply) 
  • Scalable RF and DC probe display 
  • Programmable capacitor position presets 
  • Programmable capacitor position limits 
  • Remote controlled via analog system interface connector 
  • Matching network capacitors can be manually positioned from front panel controls while unit is in “Automatic” mode 
  • Loop-through control connectors for the RF power supply – simplifies connection of RF and DC probes, provides forward power, reflected power, and power setpoint monitoring 
  • Adjustable error amplifier gain 
  • Rear panel phase and magnitude error signal test points 
  • Limit condition backout: The MC2 controller reverses the matching network’s motors for a brief interval when a minimum or maximum position limit condition has been reached, allowing the matching network to re-tune, thus minimizing “stuck” network conditions. The limit condition feature can be enabled/disabled from the front panel.
