High voltage converters are devices that employ the process of magnetic coupling in order to transform the properties of a specific electrical current into those of another. They are capable of altering the form and content of a current to match the requirements of another device. When dealing with high voltages, there is always a concern about actions that might potentially cause the device to overheat. These converters minimize that possibility by insuring that voltages are adjusted to integrate with each system area they pass through.

The high-powered density of high voltage converters is nicely compatible with devices requiring a high capacitance. This includes high pulse devices, high amplification devices. They are also especially useful when a high current load must be processed by a device with an increased repetition rate.

Types of High Voltage Converters

The Bi-Polar C series of high voltage converters is one of several popular varieties of these devices. This type contains two positive and two negative windings, and can generate up to 140 w high power. Because they encapsulate a module pair within the same case, they can reduce costs associated with system integration, burn-in, and testing.

As the output current of a Bi-Polar C converter is decreased, there is no concurrent reduction in the maxim current capability rate. This allows for a highly consistent, reliable system of management. As a result, these devices minimize the internal capacitance of the overall system. By minimizing internal capacitance, high voltage converters facilitate the integration of fast rise applications into the existing system structure.
