PVX-4000-2kV-EX ±2.0kV Pulse Generator
The PVX-4000-2kV is an air-cooled, high voltage pulse generator. Optimized for driving high impedance capacitive loads at up to ±2000 V, the PVX-4000-2kV is well-suited for driving extraction grids and deflection plates for electrostatic modulation of particle beams in time-of-flight mass spectrometers and accelerators.
The PVX-4000-2kV-EX requires external high-voltage power supply sources from 0 V to ±2000 V. For example, a +1000 V supply can be connected to the positive voltage input, and a -1000 V supply can be connected to the negative voltage input, for a total of 2000 V. The differential voltage (difference between the positive and negative supply voltages) must not exceed 2000 V.
The system is capable of duty cycles from 2% to 98% and repetition rates from 40 Hz to 30,000 Hz using the internal trigger. With an external trigger the system is capable of single shot to 600 kHz with a pulse width of 500 ns to 100% duty cycle.
Programming is done through front panel controls as well as RS-232 and USB computer interfaces.
For automated applications, complete control of the instrument is provided through RS-232 and USB computer interfaces. Up to five system configurations may be stored in internal non-volatile memory, providing instant recall of frequently-used configurations.
Conveniently-located front panel BNC connectors allow the PVX-4000-2kV to be externally triggered.
The system has a Sync output for interconnection to other equipment. The pulse from the Sync output is synchronized to the leading edge of the output voltage pulse.
The output voltage waveform can easily be monitored through the Voltage Monitor BNC connection using an oscilloscope set to 1 MΩ termination.
