Waveguide Arc Detector
A new generation of Arc Detectors developed at CERN. Each sensor head is equipped by four independent photo detectors looking directly into the waveguide covering all directions. Optional two “blind” detectors for environments with high radiation background. Reliability increased by redundancy of the sensors and implementation of the voting logic.


  • Developed for “large” waveguides (WR2300, WR2100), full height and half-height types
  • Mounting to the narrow wall of the waveguide
  • Sensor head mounted directly into the waveguide
  • Receiver prepared for two independent sensors
