The D5 Series is formed by Drivers, Coils and Accessories. The driver is the main device, onto which coils and accessories are plugged. The Driver is controlled by Maniac, nB’s proprietary software, running on any external computer with USB connection.
All Drivers can drive all coils and all accessories. And all drivers can be set for virtually any frequency within the working range from 100 kHz to 800 kHz.
There is no limit to the number of frequencies you can configure in your system because all D5 Drivers are capable of self-calibrating once an external plug-in capacitor and/or a coil are installed.
All drivers can be equipped with 1, 2 or 4 integrated fiber optic temperature probes. There are 5 drivers divided in 2 groups: The F Drivers and the G Drivers.
The G drivers are the most complete set of instruments of the series. They can automatically handle up to 15 frequency modes for each coil (*). This is achieved by the automatic reconfiguration of the internal capacitor bank, just like in DM100 applicators. You can also install an additional plug-in capacitor and get no less than 16 new frequency modes (*). That’s for each single additional capacitor. And you can get as many as you want.
The F drivers can automatically handle only one frequency modes for each coil. The working frequency is fixed by the coil and the installed capacitor. You can tune the system to virtually any other frequency by installing a plug-in capacitor in the front panel connector. Therefore, in these models, the frequency switch is operated by the user.
(*) Lower frequency modes are usually close to each other in frequency, so a set of 15 or 16 frequency modes in practice can be considered to provide approximately 10 distributed frequency modes. Please, see the CoilSets Guide for more information.
(1) # of frequency modes per coil; (2) # of additional frequency modes per additional plugin capacitor; (3) Maximum magnetic field amplitude in Oersted (KA/m) which corresponds to a Driver working with the S18 CoilSet at the minimum available frequency. Please, check the CoilSets Guide and each datasheet for detailed characterization of each CoilSet.
