e2v is the world’s largest manufacturer of pulse magnetrons and a world leader in magnetron technology. Its product capabilities range in frequency from 1GHz to 95GHz at powers from 1.5kW to 6MW and encompass a wide range of anode, cathode and tuning technologies, dependent upon the application.
The company has been manufacturing magnetrons, established under the EEV brand, for several decades. e2v aims to meet the stringent specifications for the military market, the power, long life and low running costs for industry and medicine, and to achieve the price performance requirements for the highly competitive marine and airborne radar markets.
In 2003, e2v won a Queen's Award in the International Trade category for its low-power linear accelerator (LINAC) magnetrons, which provide the vital microwave energy in radiotherapy machines. In 2004, e2v was presented with a Queen’s Award for Innovation for its fast tune magnetron.
e2v recently launched its new MG6090 series of magnetrons to the market. The tunable S-band MG6090 has been developed in direct response to customer requirements, and has been designed specifically for radiotherapy linear accelerator use.
