Comdel Press Release - March 30, 2009
Comdel Provides Cost Effective Solution for Matching to a Wide Range
of Process Loads
Massachusetts, March 30, 2009 - Comdel, Inc., trusted supplier
of RF and DC power, announces the CPMX1000, the newest addition to their
extensive line of automatic impedance matching networks. Capable of
handling RF currents of 20 Amps, this new match is the ideal solution
for matching to a wide range of process loads. Designed with air variable
capacitors, this match provides a cost effective alternative for power
applications up to 1250 watts. The CPMX1000 can be used as a stand-alone
unit or controlled remotely using the CMPX Remote controller. DeviceNET
as well as standard RS-232 and analog control are options in the remote
The CPMX1000 system is engineered with Comdel's unique
PROTRAK, a high-speed tuning algorithm that gradually slows the system
as it approaches the tuning point, allowing a precise match even in
high "Q" loads. This proportional control circuitry illustrates the
critical difference between Comdel's Match Pro and other matching networks.
The Match Pro adjusts input impedance to 50 Ohms quickly, accurately
and dependably--in response to the changes in load characteristics during
your process. The CPMX1000 is configured to operate at fixed frequencies
from 2 to 27.12 MHz and features automatic and manual modes with local
and remote manual control of tuning capacitors, and the ability to preposition
capacitors to the optimal plasma ignition point prior to turn on, resulting
in quick and reliable tuning.
