Fast Current Transformer (FCT)

Overview

Fast Current Transformer (FCT) is used for non-destructive measurement of pulsed beam current. It is a passive, in-flange FCT. It consists of stainless steel CF150 conflate flanges, a ferrite core and an Alumina ceramic brake. A BNC connector is provided for measurement. It can be used to measure pulse beam currents of duration up to 10 µs, has a sensitivity 3 V/A and droop is less than 5%/ µs. It is UHV compatible.

Detail Technical Brochure

Fast Current Transformer (FCT) is a device used for non-destructive measurement of pulsed beam current. In accelerator technology, FCT’s are routinely used for the measurement of pulsed beam current during accelerator operation in the beam line at the exit of ion source/ electron gun or accelerating tube.

APPD, BARC has developed an In-flange, passive FCT consisting of SS304 conflate flanges, a ferrite core and Alumina ceramic brake. A BNC connector is provided for the measurement. FCT is UHV compatible and can be used to measure pulsed beam currents having pulse width up to 10µs. The Sensitivity is 3V/A and Droop is less than 5%/µs.

ADVANTAGES

  • It is a non-destructive method of beam current measurement
  • Easy to use, UHV compatible
  • It is an import substitute; currently FCT is not available in Indian market.
