A fast rise high voltage converter is a device that facilitates a measured, swift increase in power, depending on the parameters of the situation. These devices are highly flexible, and are often employed in many situations, from delicate laboratory procedures, to high end industrial environments. These devices combine the properties of easy-to-manipulate AC power, with the steady, regulated precision of DC power.

Nearly every fast rise high voltage converter utilizes an internal capacitor to maintain its efficiency. This storage capacitor also acts as an extra output filter, which regulates any changes to the current as it passes through the device. In some situations, such as when a device requires continuous DC power, an external filter/capacitor is also added, helping to maintain the overall integrity of the current.

Efficiency of the Fast Rise High Voltage Converter

Another aspect of efficiency in this device is its cost efficient production. These devices offer an entire module pair within one case, streamlining the production process. This also manages to diminish time and resources for testing, potting, and system maintenance. As a result, these devices are often highly affordable, considering their application, and easy to integrate into a system.

A fast rise high voltage converter also uses many additional features in order to maintain the integrity of the current and to curb dissipation. The large level of internal storage capacitance makes these devices especially useful in high pulse situations. In addition, they are also suited for high discharge devices, devices with rapid repetition rates, and high current loads.
