MDU-1200
MÖSSBAUER DRIVE UNIT

The Mössbauer Drive Unit MDU-1200 is used to control the source motion of Mössbauer velocity transducers. It can be operated together with all of our transducer models. The error minimisation facility of Drive Unit MDU-1200 provides a high precision of the source motion. By means of this facility the velocity transducer can be operated not only in its resonance frequency, but in the whole frequency range of approximately 1 ... 100 Hz.
A 2 x 4 digit display shows for each channel the velocity during its dwell time together with the channel number.The display is based on laser calibration. For this purpose, the drive unit has to be connected with the Mössbauer Velocity Calibrator MVC-450. The desired channel is addressd by a cursor. Its position on the waveform can be indicated by a marker on the oscilloscope screen. A microcomputer inside the drive unit performs the channel-to-velocity conversion. During an calibration measurement the data is taken and stored simultaneously for all channels. A serial output permits the transfer of the velocity data to a personal computer (the software is just being prepared and will be ready shortly).
The deviation of the motion from its ideal value is indicated by a LED bar with a logarithmic scale permitting an easy monitoring of the drive system.
