- Programmable high voltage precision DC-DC converters for medical applications.
- The power supply can deliver up to 600 VDC at 0.5 W output power from an input voltage of +5 VDC.
Advanced Energy has released an UltraVolt AEQ series of power supply that is suitable for a wide range of medical, life science, industrial and semiconductor equipment applications. The power supply can deliver up to 600 VDC at 0.5 W output power from an input voltage of +5 VDC. The programmable supply offers a stable output voltage and enhanced isolation support and is suitable for critical high-voltage applications in medical and industrial applications.
A programmable power supply can be adjusted to provide a specific voltage and current output. The output can be programmed and controlled through software or other digital means, allowing for precise control and automation of the power supply in various applications. This type of power supply is commonly used in electronic test and measurements, research and development, and manufacturing processes.
The UltraVolt AEQ series offers several benefits compared to other small form factor DC-DC converters including an output that is proportional to the control pin voltage, giving complete programmability from zero to the maximum rated value. Output stability is within 5% at maximum Vout and full load. A high input-to-output isolation rating of 1500 VDC supports precise output voltage control and meets safety levels required for handheld equipment, in addition to supporting compliance in medical and life science applications.
“Because of its small size, ease of voltage control and output voltage accuracy and stability, the AEQ series is ideal for use in high-voltage products where space and weight are critical application requirements,” said Conor Duffy, vice president of marketing, medical power products at Advanced Energy. “The series is particularly well-suited for hand-held and portable devices ranging from silicon detectors and avalanche photodiodes to MEMS devices and ultrasonic transducers. Its programmable control enhances flexibility, precision and reliability to address specific application needs.”
The precise and stable output voltage, small size and enhanced isolation of the UltraVolt AEQ series of power supply makes it suitable for use in high-voltage needs for medical, life science, industrial and semiconductor applications.
