Overview

The UltraVolt AA series includes eight models ranging from 62 to 6,000 VDC of maximum high voltage power. The AA series models are available in single-output positive or negative polarities, deliver up to 30 W from 12 or 24 VDC inputs, and are PCB-mounted. The series features several analog interfaces that allow you to precisely control and monitor high voltage output and current. Mechanical and electrical performance options can be factory-configured to meet application needs.

Benefits

  • Upgrade module and system performance without changing PCB layout
  • Speed time-to-market by simplifying controls integration
  • Improve responsive and control of high voltage output
  • Expand mechanical integration, external RF protection, and interconnection possibilities
  • Increase system repeatability, resolution, and long-term reliability

Features

  • Configurable high voltage output, power, and polarity in a common footprint
  • Available 0 to 5 VDC or 0 to 10 VDC (full-scale) analog interfaces
  • Control and monitoring of high voltage output and current
  • Selection of electrical, shielding, and mechanical integration options
  • Ripple performance as low as 100 ppm (0.05 Vpp)
