Arbitrary Pulse Generator APG Series

APG Product Brochure (PDF)

Key Features

  • Isolated/floating output can be biased with respect to the load
  • Arbitrary square wave generation
  • Clean square wave output with fast rise/fall times
  • Turnkey system with front panel and/or remote pulse control
  • Independently user adjustable output voltage, duty cycle, and pulse repetition frequency
  • Drives a wide variety of loads, including plasma discharges

Specifications

Duty cycle, pulse repetition frequency, and output voltage are all independently, user
adjustable from zero to maximum value. Maximum output voltage and power are set
at time of order. Below are sample specifications. Please contact EHT to discuss your
application’s specific needs.

  • Frequency: DC – 100 kHz (higher burst frequency possible)
  • Duty Cycle: 0 – 100 %
  • Square wave rise/fall time: 100 ns – 1 us (load dependent)
  • Maximum output voltage options: 1, 2.5, 5, or 10 kV
  • Maximum power options: 100, 500, 1000, or 5000 W
  • Current source only or source & sink options available
