Overview

The UltraVolt High-Power C series features 17 highly efficient models that range from 125 to 60,000 VDC. They are available in single-output positive or negative polarities. Benefit from up to 250 W of fast-rise charging power with less than 1% overshoot from a 24 VDC input. Easily control and monitor high voltage output and current from one of the several available analog interfaces. The High-Power C series is a smart choice for applications needing greater than 30 W of high power density. 

 

Benefits

  • Reduce system footprint and simplify packaging requirements
  • Achieve higher system throughput with quick capacitor charging
  • Minimize stress on storage capacitors, enhance system reliability, simplify product design
  • Provide more responsive and adaptable control of high voltage capacitor charging
  • Expand mechanical integration and interconnection possibilities

Features

  • Fast-rise charging power delivered from an optimized design
  • Limited overshoot, typically less than 1% of high voltage setpoint, depending on the application
  • High power-to-package size ratio
  • Full-featured analog interface includes voltage/current controls and monitors
  • Selection of electrical and mechanical integration options
