Primarily aimed at designers of laser systems using intense pulsed light (IPL), Luso Electronics has announced a new cost-effective range of power modules with a wide low voltage trim range that are optimised to overcome the typical start-up problems associated with switching into a discharged capacitor.
The XgM, XgN, XgP and XgQ power modules manufactured by Excelsys, available with nominal output voltages of 5V, 12V, 24V and 48V respectively, can be dynamically trimmed down to 1V. The modules feature power output levels from 200W to 288W, and can be connected in parallel or series to deliver the necessary current and voltage to meet required charge and discharge profiles.
Able to comfortably power systems ranging from 1V to 500V, typical IPL implementations use capacitances in the mF range. Excelsys’ power components however have been used by customers with capacitances up to 12F.
