60 W, 500 mA Flashlamp Simmer Supply

Model 864A Flashlamp Simmer Supply

Model 864A Simmer SupplyThe Model 864A Simmer Supply is designed to strike and maintain a low-level current discharge in flashlamps.  Initially, the simmer output open circuit voltage rises to a stabilized 1500 V.  The simmer trigger output provides an SCR discharge of 520 V at 63 mJ to drive a trigger transformer.  When the lamp is struck, the trigger pulses are inhibited and the supply provides a constant current to the flashlamp.  Immediately after PFN discharge, the current is boosted automatically to maintain the arc.  An external ballast is not normally required.
