CW Arc Lamp Driver
For pumping continuous-wave arc lamps, AMI manufactures CW Arc Lamp Driver power supplies in both rack-mount custom packages and individual modules for OEM use. Efficient and reliable, these products provide for both lamp ignition and control of lamp currents up to 60A. All CW products are designed to meet the European medical safety standard EN 60601-1 making these products the ideal choice for both medical and industrial laser applications.
Designed to meet EN60601-1, the Model 591A CW Arc Lamp Driver is a low cost, compact, continuous (CW) current source designed to efficiently drive Xenon and Krypton arc lamps. The Model 591A can deliver up to 30A of lamp current or up to 3kW of average output power depending on lamp voltage. The modular design of the Model 591A allows multiple units to be directly paralleled for >30A applications. The module provides optically isolated indicator and current control lines, excellent line regulation, and low ripple. These features make the Model 591A CW Power Module an ideal choice for CW laser applications.
The Model 5901 CW Arc Lamp Driver can deliver up to 45A of lamp current or up to 6kW of average output power depending on lamp voltage. The modular design of the Model 5901 allows multiple units to be directly paralleled for >45A applications. The module provides optically isolated indicator and current control lines, excellent line regulation, and low ripple. These features make the Model 5901 CW Power Module an ideal choice for CW laser applications.
The Model 592T igniter provides 1000VDC from an onboard capacitor reservoir to assist in the ignition of CW arc lamps. Simultaneously, the module provides 775V, 300mJ pulses to energize a series or parallel/external trigger transformer. The 592T is designed to derive its input power from AMI’s 590 Series of CW power modules, but it can also be supplied by a outside AC source.
