Danisense current transducers used at CERN in particle booster PSU
Extreme accuracy and immunity to magnetic fields required by renowned international physics institution.
Danisense, the leader in high-accuracy current transducers for demanding applications, has announced that its current transducers have been used by teams at CERN as part of a significant upgrade program. The Danisense zero-flux DC current transducers (DCCT) are used in the design of QTRIM power supplies for the Proton Synchrotron (PS) Booster Accelerator, which is part of a chain of accelerators that inject the beam into the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics.
The upgrade will increase the beam energy in the PS booster accelerator from 1.4GeV to 2GeV. The quality of the beam is strongly dependent on the quality of the current measurement provided by Danisense.
- This is a significant win for Danisense, as it demonstrates the extreme accuracy of our Fluxgate technology and our ability to custom-build solutions for very demanding applications. In this instance we developed the CERN DCCT with a separate sensing head. We had to increase the magnetic shielding which is a complex process since it is built into the core windings. However, because we maintain all significant manufacturing processing in-house at our facility in Denmark, we were able to develop a solution and implement it quickly, says Loic Moreau, Sales & Marketing Director at Danisense.
By combining complex magnetic performance with advanced electronics Danisense provides efficient and precise solutions that match the requirements of worldwide customers in demanding industries. Danisense was founded in 2012 and is based in Denmark and Japan.
