HV Technologies Launches (N)EMP Cam: A camera that can withstand high electromagnetic pulses

(N)EMP Cam

With the threat for electro-magnetic weapons (intentional electromagnetic interference – IEMI) against mission critical systems, there is a strong demand for CCTV systems that can survive such attacks. Along with electro-magnetic weapons, lightning strikes in close vicinity to mission critical facilities can also result in high electromagnetic pulses (EMP) fields.

PONTIS (N)EMP cameras offer a special shielding and filtering to withstand the high field strengths, especially magnetic fields, occurring with EMP and NEMP pulses. In addition to electro-magnet immunity, the cameras can also withstand harsh environmental conditions.

There are three versions available:

– In door use (0ºC to 70ºC)

– Weather proof: IP 64 (-40ºC to +60ºC)

– Extended version with sealed housing for very hot and dusty environments: IP64 (-30ºC to +75ºC)

In most cases these cameras need to be integrated in existing CCTV and surveillance systems. The NEMP camera offers an IP interface that is compatible with many surveillance software applications (supporting also ONVIF).

The PONTIS NEMP CCTV system is composed of the actual camera inside a weather proof housing and a separate shielded power supply. The data communication (Ethernet) is by fiber-optics. All cables for the power supply need to be specially shielded. Inside the camera housing and the power supply there is a special mechanical shielding and high performance filters.

4/16/2020 – Tabor Electronics Webinar: Advanced Microwave Topics for Quantum Physicists

Title: Advanced Microwave Topics for Quantum Physicists

Date: Thursday, April 16, 2020

Time: 02:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Duration: 1 hour

Register HERE

A quantum experiment is difficult. Many factors interfere with obtaining accurate results, including noise, interference, individual qubit behavior and the effects multiple qubits can have on each other. Controlling the qubit state, its entanglement and ensuring controlled and stable measurement requires the precise application of electromagnetic waves.

This seminar covers microwave control systems, which include methods of synthesis, pulse shaping and modulation techniques used in both semiconductor and photon based qubits. We will also cover analog signal generation techniques common in many systems today, plus direct to microwave digital signal generation and measurement based on new DAC and ADC technology.

Learning Outcomes:
- Understanding RF and Microwave signal concepts.
- Trade-offs in frequency synthesis technique.
- What types of modulation techniques to use for the best measurement stability
- Latest advances in real time feedback and control

Who Should Attend:
Experimental Quantum Physicists who are curious to learn more about various RF/Microwave techniques - and how they could be used not only to enhance their current results, but also provide them with key knowledge that may help in defining the architecture for next generation of quantum systems.

4/15/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: High-Resolution Oscilloscope Design Webinar Series: Part Two

Date: Wed, April 15, 2020
Time:11:00am Pacific | 2:00pm Eastern
There has been an explosion in the market of high definition oscilloscopes at 1 GHz or more bandwidth with claims of 10-bit, 12-bit or even (remarkably!) 16-bit resolution. Oscilloscope manufacturers use a variety of design approaches to increase resolution, some of which impose other performance tradeoffs.

You might be wondering:

  • What can be believed?
  • How can you tell if you are getting what is advertised?
  • What is the difference between high definition and high resolution?
Join Ken Johnson for this two-part webinar series to gain a better understanding of various manufacturer’s claims.

Part 2 provides an overview of various high definition/resolution oscilloscope design approaches and implementations with real-world comparisons of Teledyne LeCroy, Keysight, Rohde & Schwarz and Tektronix oscilloscopes and correlation of performance limitations with various design approaches. Click here to register. 

Part 1 aired on March 11 and provided an understanding of the design of a digital oscilloscope acquisition system and the attendant sources of noise. Click here to watch the recording

4/1/2020 – Teledyne LeCroy Webinar: Advanced TDR Concepts

Date: Wed, April 1, 2020
Time: 11:00am Pacific | 2:00pm Eastern
A TDR can measure much more than just the impedance profile of a transmission line. In this webinar, Dr. Eric Bogatin shows how to use a TDR to measure the dielectric constant of a laminate, the excess capacitance or inductance of a discontinuity, the return loss of an interconnect with a matched termination, the resonant frequencies of structures and the impedance uniformity of a flex circuit or interconnect with high series resistance.

When your needs require higher bandwidth, more ports, cross talk, insertion and return loss measurements, he’ll introduce you to a more advanced instrument to meet your most demanding needs.

This is the final webinar in our six-part series on Mastering the TDR. To view previous webinars in the series please click below:
