Ascent AMS Pulsed and DC Power System


Stable Power Delivery for Extreme Arc Conditions and Highly Repeatable Films

As manufacturing techniques advance, new materials and cathode designs pose greater challenges to process stability and film repeatability. Ascent® AMS power supplies deliver stable, repeatable power, regardless of process material or cathode design. The AMS provides advanced arc management, allowing maximum power delivery with faster recovery to process. Extreme fast recovery also means extremely low energy delivered through arcs, preventing substrate damage. For high power applications, the Ascent AMS can be used in primary/secondary configuration. Common applications include output configurations over 100 kW. However, the combined water/air cooling design keeps the generator footprint to a minimum.



  • Arc Management System™ (AMS) technology — customer pre-sets for metal and ceramic targets
  • Set Point Compensation™ technology
  • Arc Sync® technology — primary/secondary up to 12 units
  • Ethernet, EtherCAT®, DeviceNet®, Profibus, RS-232/485, Ethernet/IP, and analog communications
