Piecewise eXcitation System for RF-Heating Evaluation of Medical Devices in MRI Environments

The piX system is designed to demonstrate the radiofrequency (RF) safety of patients during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination. piX assembles all the instrumentation needed to effectively generate a model of the RF response of an implantable medical device to MRI exposure. The system is in compliance with the Tier 3 procedure of the IEC/ISO TS10974 guidelines and operates in the frequency range from 28 to 150 MHz.
Operating frequency 28 – 150 MHz
