This, it says, runs pulse width modulation (PWM) controlled by fast digital signal processing (DSP) to deliver a full sinusoidal wave output with low harmonic distortion and a high input power factor under different load conditions and brightness steps.
CST is a unique Medtronic method of stent manufacturing, which involves forming a single strand of cobalt alloy wire into a sinusoidal wave to construct a stent.
The distortion components can be submultiples of the fundamental frequencies in a power system and cause distortion in the sinusoidal wave shape and are called harmonic distortion but generally the integer multiples are referred as harmonic components and are harmonic distortion.
Improper cabling allowing EM radiation from external sources could explain sinusoidal wave forms.
