Precision power control for your critical applications
Performance Controls, Inc. (PCI), which specializes in the design and production of gradient amplifiers, filters and shim amplifiers for MRI and NMR and power supplies for magnet control in beam steering applications, is now part of FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation.
PCI’s special expertise is designing power amplifiers for systems requiring extreme precision, stability and dependability. Our offerings encompass a range of standard products, and we also provide customized solutions to meet specific requirements.
Since pioneering the design of the first pulse width modulated (PWM) gradient amplifier for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the early 1990s, Performance Controls has consistently been at the forefront of the industry with innovative designs.
Explore our medical applications.
Ever since Performance Controls designed the first pulse width modulated (PMW) gradient amplifier for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the early 1990s, the company has been leading the industry with new designs. Other achievements include the first fully digital architecture and the first dedicated software for gradient amplifier commissioning, tuning, troubleshooting and remote diagnostics.
Proton Beam Therapy, or PBT, uses protons obtained from hydrogen atoms to treat cancerous tumors in the body. A series of electromagnets guide these protons through the beamline on their path from the particle accelerator to the patient. We have leveraged our experience in industrial and MRI/NMR applications to develop high-stability, high-bandwidth power supplies for controlling the magnets in this exacting application.
