Harmonic Inductive Gain (HIG™) is a rapidly growing technology that is changing the game in what has previously been a stagnating technology; inductive heating. HIG utilizes a pulsed output signal rich in high frequency harmonics to deliver an intensely changing magnetic field in place of a sinusoidal signal generated from large currents. This approach allows for efficiency gains that permit air-cooled power supplies and coils to be realized. Modulation of the output pulse allows for precise control over output power with 1W precision regardless of coil configuration, coil type, or load type; affording full flexibility in coil design. The resultant system is incredibly versatile and intelligent offering the same ‘plug and play’ design flexibility as resistive heating while maintaining the highest level of efficiency and reliability available with induction.
