    Integrated CombineLine technology

    Highest efficiency and process stability

    As a result of its excellent efficiency, this generator boasts half of the power loss and a reduction in required cooling water, enabling you to minimize your operating costs. The extremely robust generator design enables longer operating times, even for critical processes, and thus higher coating rates. Plasma fluctuations are effectively prevented as a result of CombineLine technology with true 50 ohm output impedance – ensuring absolutely stable processes.

    TruPlasma RF 3012 radio frequency generator

    Safety under all circumstances

    The robust design ensures the maximum reliability and productivity of your processes. 100% mismatch protection guarantees secure operation, even during critical loads. Optional continuous or pulsed power output supports a broad array of process requirements. More than 20,000 units are already installed around the world – more than any other plasma power supply.

    TruPlasma RF_Systemport

    TRUMPF SystemPort

    SystemPort enables closed loop control through the measurement of the RF signal directly at the input and output of the matchbox. All measured values are available to the RF generator. This means all the process parameters can be better monitored, the matchbox protected, and early arc detection guaranteed. The entire RF system can therefore be controlled via a single generator interface.

    Various options allow optimal adjustment of the RF generator to your application.

    Arc management

    The well-grounded arc management is the ideal module for optimized plasma process control. Targeted arc detection guarantees the highest productivity possible, while protecting the product and the system at the same time.

    User-friendly software TruControl Power

    TruControl Power

    The user-friendly TruControl Power, control software, enables the convenient start-up and secure monitoring of the RF generator or the entire TRUMPF RF system during current processes.

    All components of the TRUMPF RF System are perfectly matched.

    RF system solution: Matchbox for the highest process stability
    TruPlasma Match Series 1000 (G2/13)

    TruPlasma Match matchboxes ensure an optimal transfer of power from the generator to the plasma discharge. The matchbox can be operated independently or via an intelligent generator/matchbox connection, the so-called SystemPort.

    Master oscillator for the stabilization of critical synchronous plasma processes
    Master oscillators

    Master oscillators can be used to stabilize and optimize critical synchronous plasma processes. An integrated, digital frequency and phase synthesizer ensures excellent frequency and phase stability and supports the adjustment of the phase position with a very small increment. Various master oscillator designs for the frequency 13.56 MHz as well as different frequency combinations are available.

    RF switches for the use of an RF generator at flexible plasma systems
    RF switch

    An RF switch supports the multiple use of an RF generator at various plasma process stations, for example, for providing power to sequential processes, or on systems with various feed points. Various RF switches are available in two power classes and with 2, 3, or 4 outputs.

    Coaxial cable for the transfer of the specified power
    Coaxial cable

    TRUMPF Hüttinger offers coaxial cables that are specifically designed for operation in 50-ohm systems for RF power transmission.

    Generator and matchbox: A perfectly matched system solution

    Perfectly matched: generator and matchbox

    Plasma processes behave like a complex, variable load, to which the power supply from the generator needs to be continually adjusted. Active matchboxes handle this task, ensuring precise adjustment to the optimal impedance of 50 ohms at all times. The result is a perfectly matched system solution, the TRUMPF RF System. The generator and matchbox can be easily integrated into your existing process environment via various interfaces, including EtherCAT. You can also gain an optimized system solution through an intelligent generator/matchbox connection, the so-called SystemPort.
