PCA-10 capacitor charging power supply is a high-frequency switch-mode converter, which transforms AC input to regulated high voltage DC output to charge capacitors. It was developed for the use in pumping systems of flashlamp-pumped solid-state laser devices. However, they have found their application also in non-laser medical systems, e.g. for magnetic pulse stimulators.

PCA-10 is a less powerful modification of PCA-20 capacitor charger. Its maximum output power is 1000 W (with 110-240 V AC, 50/60 Hz input). Several variants of PCA-10 are offered with different maximum output voltage level (Vmax), selected from 300 V to 1500 V at the moment of order. Higher output voltages are available on request. We would recommend to pick Vmax as close as possible to your operating voltage in order to utilize completely the output power of the device.

During operation an output voltage level can be chosen in working range (0 V - Vmax) by user, applying a DC voltage to the respective pin.

By default, modules are optimized for partial discharge applications. Complete discharge modifications are available on request.

Module is intended to be used for medical purposes, in medical laser equipment. All the device parameters meet the latest versions of medical standards requirements: IEC 60601-1:2005/AMD1:2012 for electrical safety and IEC 60601-1-2:2014 for EMC, so PCA‑10 can be used in medical systems without any modifications, any additional filtration or additional means of protection.

High reliability and efficiency, easy to integrate OEM design and a lot of flexible parameters for customized solutions allows PCA-series to be used in wide variety of applications, both medical and industrial.
