Powers Non-Resonant Resistive and Resonant Capacitive Loads. Can provide over 1500 Watts of high frequency plasma energy to a properly matched load. Will provide 600 to 1000 watts to a non complex resistive load such as an arc. Tunable from 20k to 70kHz. With independent voltage, frequency and current control. May be custom made to customers requested specifications.
Unit is intended for the experimenter/researcher working in plasma research physics or other similar fields. A certain amount of knowledge helps to effectively operate the unit as in some cases it must be tuned to the output capacitance and resistance of the load. This is basic boilerplate technology to any electronics engineer and may involve simple impedance matching algebraic formulas.
These units may be built to individual customer requirements. The basic unit as described can be modified within limits. Please contact our tech team to discuss any modifications or options you may need for your project.
Input: 220V single-phase
Included VARIAC provides total power control to the load up to 2kW
Voltage control: ~5kV to 50kV pk-pk output. An analog meter shows DC voltage of the power amplifier.
Current control: ~10% to 100% output (duty cycle provides adjustable chopped current pulses at a constant voltage). An analog meter shows current to the power amplifier and indicates resonant rises.
Frequency control: ~20kHz to 70kHz. A digital meter displays the operating frequency.
Frequency adjust control allows a smooth linear adjustment throughout the frequency range
Adjustable over-voltage shutdown for those high Q resonant loads that generate high peak voltage powers at resonance. Maximum voltage will depend on your load parameters.
The oil-filled transformer is overbuilt to handle high resonant voltage rises, and includes built-in protection circuitry that will shut the system down should the voltage exceed the transformer's insulated rating.
The standard transformer tunes out 10 to 200pfd capacitance, but we can build transformers to other capacitive loads; please contact us and specify your requirements.
Heavy-duty power switch switches both sides of the fused 220V lines
