High Density Laser Capacitor Charging Power Supply

September 20, 2019 by Paul Shepard

Advice Electronics has announced the release of a new LCH3000-XXX series of capacitor charging ac-dc power supplies. The LCH3000-XXX series is a new generation of high voltage pulsed power supplies based on Advice's innovative QCP (Quasi Constant Power) technology providing up to 3,000J/Sec in the range of 400V- 1.2KV using the traditional standard size 12.7" x 5.7" x 4.1" (32.2 x 14.5 x 10.4 cm). This size has previously been limited in the marketplace to 2,000J/Sec maximum.

"We are proud to lead the market of Capacitor Charging bringing new innovations," said Shlomo Ostrovski, Advice Electronics' Vice President of Power Supplies Division. "The QCP technology is a game changer in high voltage capacitor charging technology allowing to achieve high power density, faster repetition rates and high reliability."
