Codatron™ high voltage regulators were specifically designed as a solid state replacement of the Victoreen Corotron™
Olympia, WA (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
Oil 4 Less LLC, has known that Victoreen has made a number of lines of Corotron™ shunt regulators, and recently looked carefully at all of the Victoreen shunt regulator lines:
Their first listed line is the GV1A series, designed for use as a shunt regulator circuit and reference voltage in satellite applications where space is at a premium. While we can produce a solid-state replacement, we have seen no need in this field.
Their second listed line is the GV3A series, designed for portable radiation detection instruments and photo-multiplier tubes. Our Codatron™ HT series is a solid-state replacement specifically designed for this use.
Their third listed line is the GV3A high temperature series, designed for portable radiation detection instruments and photo-multiplier tubes. Our Codatron™ HT-A series is a solid-state replacement specifically designed for this extreme environment use.
Their fourth listed line is the GV3S ruggedized series, designed for missile applications. The Codatron is not specified for vibration or shock, but otherwise may be used as a solid-state replacement.
Their fifth listed line is the GV3S ruggedized high temperature series, designed primarily for the petroleum well logging industry. Our Codatron™ HT-A series is a solid-state replacement specifically designed for this use.
Their sixth listed line is the GV4S series, designed for use extreme environmental conditions. Our Codatron™ HT-A series may be used as replacements.
Their seventh, eighth and ninth listed lines are the GV5A, GV5B and GV6B series; our Codatron™ HT series may be used as replacements.
Now it gets interesting: their last catalog listing covers the M42D and M45C series which ranges from 6,000 volts to 12,000 volts. While we have had no call for producing replacements for these specific tubes, we have had queries for larger and higher voltage devices – and the reference given has always been the M45C series.
So, we now are working on the expansion of our product line, to extend the high voltage range to 25,000 volts.
Specifically, we are in the midst of a design for replacing 20,000-25,000 volt regulators used in some old television sets. This design has a strong factor in its favor – it does not have to work up to 400F/204C!
Presently, we have two different designs in progress, to better ensure a successful conclusion.
