The chokes that SMP developed for a renowned German manufacturer of MRT scanners are located in the so-called gradient pulse amplifier. The task of the filter and line chokes is to provide both a clean sine wave as well as a low-loss recovery of the energy which is not needed.

In doing so, the chokes are characterized by their magnetostriction-free powder composite materials specifically developed for this application.

These materials enable the constructing of very low-noise chokes.

In order to keep the exposure to radiation low and the time in the cramped, unfamiliar situation short, the MRT device needs to be fast and efficient - chokes from SMP fulfill these high requirements.
