High voltage power supply: Enhanced interface options optimized for process systems

UltraVolt has unveiled the –I5 and –I10 options, redefining its current high-voltage power supply line.

-i5 enhanced interface option expands UltraVolt’s high-voltage power supply line. Courtesy: UltraVolt Inc.UltraVolt Inc., a manufacturer of standard-product dc-to-dc high-voltage power supplies (HVPS), said it has redefined its HVPS line by introducing two enhanced interface options: the -I5 option and the -I10 option. The -I5 and -I10 options are available on the AA Series and High Power C Series, but UltraVolt plans to offer the options on many additional product lines.

The new interfaces are optimized for connecting the HVPS to computers and PLCs in process systems and capital equipment, which are typically standardized on 0 to +5 V dc and +10 V dc signals and controls.

The options include buffered, low output impedance current and voltage monitors, and they have a programming accuracy of ±1%, according to UltraVolt. Remote programming for all polarities and all modes is 0 to +5 V (-I5) or 0 to +10 V (-I10), and the options also feature a +5 V (-I5) or +10 V (-I10) reference, ±0.05% PPM/°C. As an added benefit, the enhanced interfaces offer constant voltage, constant current auto-crossover and have current and voltage mode indicators.

Since the -I5 option and -I10 option are optimized for a wide variety of applications, they are ideal for use by the majority of high-voltage power supply design engineers. Some applications where the -I5 option or the -I10 option can be used include: bias supplies, detectors, piezo actuators, amplifiers, photomultiplier tubes, lasers, cap-chargers, pulsed power, pulse generators, test equipment, high pot testers, automated test equipment, and electrostatic precipitators.
