VTF voltage to frequency converter module

For high energy physics

N101 VTF voltage to frequency converter module

The N101 VTF voltage to frequency converter module is a four channel ultra-high linearity (<=50ppm) NIM module with onboard calibration capability. The Kromek N101 VTF is designed to be used in a range of high-energy physics applications including research and industrial use.

  • Input: Default 0 to 10 V (or 0 to 5 V internal switch selectable at the input of the VTF).
  • Output: Two independent but identical outputs per channel.

Kromek VTF features

  • Ultra-high linearity, <= 50 PPM full scale @ 1 MHz range Voltage-to Frequency (VTF) converter.
  • Measured linearity of some typical channels < 30 Hz in the mid-range.
  • Four fully decoupled independent channels.
  • Undetectable crosstalk between channels.
  • Immunity to feedback from large and fast-rising voltage swings in different channels.
  • Two outputs per channel.
  • Zero to 10-volt (or internal switch selectable 0 to 5-volt) input range.
  • Four selectable gains; x1 (accurate calibrated default), x2, x5 & x10 (<= 3% accuracy).
  • Accepts positive (default) or negative (internal switch selectable) input polarities.
  • Accurate 1 MHz clock output from internal 4 MHz common clock circuit.
  • Onboard ultra-high stability 0 to 10 V reference voltage output for calibration, (onboard pad for 5-volt output).
  • TTL output frequency range 0 to 1 MHz (2 MHz output is internal jumper selectable).
  • All frequency outputs, including the 1 MHz clock, can drive a 50-ohm cable.
  • Independent potentiometers for calibrating VTF & instrumentation amplifier modules on each channel.
  • Highest rated state of the art instrumentation amplifier and VTF integrated circuits.
  • Single width NIM module.

Hundreds of our VTF voltage to frequency converters are being used by researchers in particle accelerators and synchrotrons all over the world
