Assuming the loop-tuning mechanism balances the inductive reactance of the loop itself with the capacitive reactance of the tuning capacitor, then the feedpoint impedance of the loop is the radiation resistance plus the loss resistance.
If the connections are kept to a minimum and well-made the main loss is in the tuning capacitor and in the skin-effect resistance of the loop material itself.
Both devices offer 2048 EEPROM user bits with block lock capability (32 bits per block), a 64-bit Unique Identification number (UID) associated with the ISO-compliant anti-collision mechanism, internal tuning capacitor, and KILL function.
The team also issued a RFP for prototype high-current and high-voltage tuning capacitors.
We have addressed this evolution by eliminating the need for the external quartz crystal and the tuning capacitors to allow for a more cost effective, robust implementation," said Elie Ayache, Discera's V.
Each channel is equipped with dynamically selectable tuning capacitors up to 63 pF in 1pF steps to allow firmware-driven antenna tuning that improves signal matching without expensive hand tuning.
Tuning: FAI Series capacitors are specifically designed as tuning capacitors for induction heating equipment ranging from 20kHz to 500kHz.
