HiTek Power has added the CC1000 series of high-voltage capacitor chargers to its family of flash lamp drivers and dimmer units. The four-module line is particularly suited to laser applications and features high-frequency switching techniques that combine power factor correction with a resonant converter in a compact unit.

These power supplies are designed for use in non-contact medical environments, intense pulsed-light systems, industrial laser systems, and Nd:YAG and Er:YAG lasers.

Electrical specifications include a charging rate of 1,000 joules per second (average), peak charging rate up to 1,110J/s and rated maximum output voltages to 2kV.

The series incorporates high-efficiency zero-current and zero-voltage switching techniques, with warm-up stability of 0.2 percent per hour after 1h, high pulse-to-pulse repeatability of 0.2 percent to 300Hz, and high line regulation of 0.2 percent of rated output. Positive- and negative-voltage versions are available.

Compact and lightweight, the models can be customized to suit specific OEM applications. A fan integrated into the fully enclosed unit provides forced air cooling. The CC1000 is CE-marked for the Low Voltage Directive, EN60601-1.

The unit offers full remote control and monitoring through a 15-pin D-type connector and provides short circuit, open circuit, and overload and overcurrent protection. The units are rated for operation over 0C to 45C.

The Series CC1000 capacitor charger is priced at $895 in production quantities and comes with a one-year warranty. Availability is from stock to six weeks.
