Microcontrollers are designed to handle only low voltage and current signals on their input and outputs. So how does one control and drive a high wattage load such as an electric heater using an MCU? One of the easiest and most efficient ways is to use a Solid-State Relay (SSR). An SSR allows you to […]
IXYS Corporation announced today the introduction of the PVX-4000-2kV-EX +/- 2000 V Pulse Generator by its IXYS Colorado division. The PVX-4000-2kV-EX is an air-cooled, high voltage pulse generator optimized for high impedance capacitive loads. It is well-suited for driving extraction grids and deflection plates for electrostatic modulation of particle beams in time-of-flight mass spectrometers and accelerators. Its […]
