The SATURN Sequence Timer serves test labs as a high-precision digital control unit, also called “Trigger Generator”, “Cycle Timer”, “Sequential Timer” or simply “Sequencer”. It provides flexible and safe control of the test facility and/or unit under test by precisely timed operation of switches, contactors, relays, IGBTs, MOSFETs, high-speed cameras and other devices – either electrically or optically via fiber-optic.
The SATURN Sequence Timer is available in different versions offering up to 192 digital inputs/outputs. These inputs and outputs can be provided in groups of 8 channels in multiple formats (eg. BNC or fiber optic connectors). The fiber-optic solution provides perfect optical isolation against high voltage potentials. This makes it the ideal HV Sequencer / Cycle Timer in high voltage & high power test labs for controlling the test facility as well as the units under test (UUTs). In addition the optical transmission also allows transmission of measured data over long distance, be it in a test lab or in the field.
