Monopolar high-precision and high-stability power supplies with fast interfaces - e.g. Gigabit Ethernet and SFP/SFP+.
The FAST-PS-M series is the new generation of monopolar power supplies by CAEN ELS and it was designed in order to have state-of-the-art performances both in current- and voltage-control modes.
The 10/100/1000 Ethernet connection and the two SFP slots (which can be used as electrical or optical communication channels) allow to control the power converter in two different modes: the slow interface over the Ethernet (up to 1 kHz) is intended in cases where the power supply has to be controlled at lower rates and/or to set and monitor general parameters of the unit. The fast interface over the SFP allows to run feedback loops and fast corrections by reaching a maximum update rate of 10 kHz.
The control loop, as for most of CAEN ELS power supplies, is digital in order to obtain the maximum flexibility and easiness of configuration to any connected load.
The FAST-PS can be controlled either in current- or voltage-control modes and both control loops can be remotely configured.
Low noise and high bandwidth are just two of the main features of these power converters.
Internal protections - e.g. over-voltage, over-current - are implemented as well as external interlocks are present.
The units can be also locally controlled via a display and a local interface in order to set or monitor the main parameters and status of the power supply.
Different output current, voltage and power ratings are commercially available.
FAST-PS-M 6010 - 60A@10V (600W max)
FAST-PS-M 7508 - 75A@8V (600W max)
FAST-PS-M 10006 - 100A@6V (600W max)
Optional analog control input on BNC connector (Input = 0-10 V, Bandwidth = 1 kHz) can be added at the time of the order and will give backward compatibility to older systems used as amplifiers.
Bipolar versions of the FAST-PS-M modules are rated up to +/-30A and +/-80V and can be found on the FAST-PS product page.
The 0-FLUCS current transducers are used as sensing elements in order to give the best stability perfomance.
The use of the 0-FLUCS current transducer technology (CT-100 model) guarantee the best-in-class performances for such power supplies.
Extremely low values of long-term stabilty and temperature coefficient (TC) allow to use the FAST-PS-M power units to be the best choice when needing a stable current generator.
