Advanced Energy Industries AEIS has unveiled Luxtron M-1100, which is a multi-channel sensing platform offering high-accuracy.
The platform operates across a wide temperature range of -200°C to 450°C with +/- 0.1°C precision and +/- 0.05°C stability. This makes it ideal for plasma-enhanced semiconductor deposition and etch fabrication processes.
Luxtron M-1100, that utilizes fiber optic probes with phosphor sensor technology, is integrated with five channels, thanks to which it is capable of monitoring multiple probes from a single converter.
Moreover, the platform provides both analog and EtherCAT communication interfaces.
With the latest move, the company has expanded its Luxtron FluorOptic Thermometry product family and its fiber optic sensor portfolio.

The launch of Luxtron M-1100 bodes well for the company’s growing efforts toward expanding its overall portfolio.
Recently, Advanced Energy added a 150 W series to its SL Power NGB family of AC-DC power supplies. With NGB150 series, the company remains well-positioned to gain momentum among critical medical and industrial applications.
Further, AEIS expanded its TEGAM product line with the addition of two new handheld temperature calibrators, namely Intrinsically Safe TEGAM 947A and TEGAM 948A, which provide high accuracy and safety in hazardous environments.
Additionally, the company rolled out 48 V module in order to strengthen its Artesyn AIF line of full-brick AC-DC converters. The module offers high efficiencies of up to 93% and a compact form factor, making it suitable for applications, such as 5G remote-radio-head RF, robotics, 3D printing and industrial designs.
Advanced Energy also unveiled, UltraVolt AEQ, a new series of ultra-miniature isolated single and dual-output high voltage DC-DC converters.
We believe that Advanced Energy's expanding portfolio will continue to sustain its momentum in various end-markets, which, in turn, will drive its top-line growth in the days ahead.
