Sunpower Launches Active Vibration Cancellation for CryoTel Cryocoolers

Sunpower, Inc. has officially released an Active Vibration Cancellation (AVC) system for its CryoTel® MT, CT, and GT cryocoolers. The development of the AVC system opens opportunities for Sunpower cryocoolers that were previously unavailable due to the inherent vibration of Stirling machines. The AVC system's active balancer uses a feedback signal from an accelerometer to cancel the first 10 harmonics of the 60 Hz operation of the cryocooler, minimizing vibration at the cold tip as well as exported vibration to its mounting structure. CryoTel Cryocoolers with AVC systems have been used for applications that require extremely low vibrations, such as laser cooling, infrared detectors, spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction, atomic microscopy, high-temperature superconductivity, neutron beams, space infrared applications and radio telescopes, among others. The AVC system includes a controller, an active balancer and an accelerometer, as well as the necessary cabling for power and instrumentation. The controller drives both the cryocooler and the active balancer. The Sunpower AVC system is backward compatible with any CryoTel CT, MT, and GT cryocooler. The AVC system is a drop-in replacement for the standard passive balancer already offered on Sunpower cryocoolers. Sunpower plans to extend its AVC technology to its other cryocoolers, including the CryoTel DS1.5 and DS2.1 as well as the DS30, when it becomes commercially available.
