Magnetron Protection                            Solid-state isolator (US patent 4,835,354) to protect magnetron from reflected energy, ensuring

                                                                 constant power output.

Safety Features                                      Three independent door safety interlocks, including an interlock monitoring system plus two

                                                                 Independent thermal switches, are used in each instrument to prevent instrument operation and

                                                                 Microwave emissions in case of improper door closure or misalignment. The instrument                                                                               complies with HHS standards under 21 CFR, Part 1030.10, Subparts (C)(1), (C)(2) and (C)(3).                                                                  Reactiguard Continuously monitors the cavity and disables the magnetron if disturbances occur                                                                  inside the cavity.
