Learn more about the IXYS Pulse Generator Module PVM-4210, now available from GD Rectifiers
New to GD Rectifiers, The IXYS Colorado PVM-4210 is a compact, OEM-style pulse generator module providing two simultaneous differential voltage pulses of up to ±950V (1,900V differential).
The PVM-4210 provides two pulse output channels which are controlled by a common control logic. When the control logic receives a gate signal, both channels pulse simultaneously. One channel pulses from ground to the positive high voltage, and the other channel pulses from ground to the negative high voltage. Each output can be connected to the electrodes of a Pockels Cell or Q-Switch, or to a pair of deflection plates, providing a 1,900V differential pulse across the cells or plates.
These pulses may also be inverted, to a pulse from the high voltage potential to ground. The width and frequency of the output pulses follow the width and frequency of the TTL input gate. The amplitude of the output pulse voltage for each channel is independently adjustable from 0 to 950V using screwdriver adjustable potentiometers readily accessible on the end panel of the pulser module.
IXYS Pulse Generator Module PVM-4210 Features
- Simultaneous Positive and Negative 0 to 950V and to -950V
- >20KHz Pulse Repetition Frequency
- Internal High Voltage Power Supplies
The PVM-4210 is optimised for differential drive of deflection plates for electrostatic modulation of particle beams in time-of-flight mass spectrometres and accelerators. It will also drive any high impedance, capacitive load such as Pockels Cells and Q Switches, electrodes, microchannel plates, acoustic transducers, image intensifiers and photomultiplier tubes. The exceptional pulse fidelity of the Pvm-4210 will optimise the performance of an y system in which it is used.
IXYS offers a wide variety of High Voltage Pulse Generator Modules designed for high voltage and precision applications such as Time of Flight, Q-Switches, Pockels Cells, acoustic transducers, microchannel plates, photomultiplier tubes and image intensifiers. These modules are perfect for OEM designs as well as both permanent or semi-permanent installations.
