Schneider Electric escorts China's first 9.4T MRI system to operate stably

Recently, Schneider Electric, the global leader in digital transformation of energy efficiency management and automation, announced that it has successfully provided UPS power, chillers, and central air conditioning solutions for the 9.4T MRI system of the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The professional technical ability provides a solid guarantee for the stable operation of China's first 9.4T MRI system.

The Chinese Academy of Sciences is the highest academic institution in China's natural sciences. As an excellent research institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has achieved a series of important research in the frontiers of protein science, brain and cognitive science, nucleic acid biology, protein and peptide drugs. Results. The 9.4T MRI system of the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences was independently developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is the fourth in the world, the first 9.4T MRI system in China. After its completion, it will be mainly used in animal high-field magnetic resonance imaging systems. The significance of medical and life science research.

As an important national benchmark project, the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has raised the UPS power supply, chiller, and central air-conditioning reliability, energy efficiency, flexibility and other product performance, as well as supplier qualification and delivery capability. Standard requirements. After rigorous screening and in-depth investigation, the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences finally chose Schneider Electric as a partner in the field of data center infrastructure with deep accumulation, leading solutions and rich practice in medical nuclear magnetic applications.

In response to the specific needs of the project, Schneider Electric provided the complete power and cooling solution for the 9.4T MRI system for the Chinese Academy of Sciences Biophysics Institute including the Galaxy 7000 UPS, Uni-Aquaflair refrigeration system, and Leonardo precision air conditioning system. Reliable, efficient operation. Among them, the energy-saving, efficient and adaptable Galaxy 7000 can work with any type of load to provide the highest power quality for mission-critical loads with up to 94.5% efficiency; Aquaflair refrigeration system has High reliability, high precision and energy efficiency, and effective noise reduction; Leonardo precision air conditioners have low cost of ownership and efficient cooling capacity to meet the precision cooling needs of any data center and non-IT environment.

The project was completed in August 2018. During the project, Schneider Electric worked closely with partner Beijing Yafang Like Technology Co., Ltd. to respond quickly to customer needs. The 9.4T MRI system will be used for China's brain recognition. Basic research in science, clinical diagnosis of brain surgery provides the most advanced scientific research platform, greatly promotes the research and development and industrialization of ultra-high field superconducting biomagnet technology in China, and effectively enhances China's magnetic resonance competitiveness.
