Demonstration of magnetic bearing chopper operation

01. November 2021

The magnetic bearing motor CM-AMB-400 with a chopper rotor is demonstrated in the video below. A laser beam (generated by a FP-Mini-520 from Laser Components) is cropped by a precision pinhole with an opening of 500 µm, then passes through the chopper and detected by a photodiode (ODD-1WB by Opto Diode). The current of the photodiode is amplified by a transimpedance amplifier and made visible with a digital oscilloscope.

Use of turbo compressors with air bearings for sterile air generation increases service life, reduces operating costs, and assembly space

02. February 2021

The availability of sterile air is essential for many industries, such as the food and pharmaceutical industry, or bioprocessing. Today we use mobile or stationary sterile air generators in any application that requires air to be free of germs, pyrogens, endotoxins, and commonly bio burdens. These generators use a multi-stage filtration process to produce sterile air from contaminated ambient air.

Combining electronics and a turbo compressor in one device - the new CTi-17-700/1000.GB

08. September 2020

Electrification in various industries, especially in mobile applications and vehicles, is more and more driven by hydrogen fuel cell systems. Celeroton’s latest achievement helps to further reduce the size of the fuel cell system and simplify the integration of the compressor into the balance of plant, and, therefore, supporting the worldwide trend. Combining the power, control and communication electronics and turbo compressor into one device becomes increasingly crucial for applications with limited space.
