Precise power control is essential for high-density, uniform, reactively sputtered films. The Crystal power supply offers process engineers and operators quick yet stable power, fast arc detection, and low arc energy, resulting in industry-leading repeatability, higher throughput, and better yield. With power granularity from 60 to 180 kW, Crystal power supplies can match the demands of your low-e coating applications. Exceptional stability, flexibility, and fast arc handling and recovery have made Crystal a go-to unit.
