Reduced size and weight


HiTek Power has introduced the OLS10K family of 10kW high voltage power supplies for use in a range of ion and electron beam systems and other applications.

Two versions are available, both housed within a single 6U 19” rack mounted chassis. The Series OLS10K has been developed to offer alternatives to the separate chassis of the Series OL6000, OL8000 and OL10K supplies, resulting in a 40% lower volume than previous supplies, coupled with lower weight and cost. These rugged systems are mains powered and provide a range of maximum output voltages from 1 to 80kV. A parallel option offers a maximum output power of 20kW.
The greatest size reduction has been achieved in the high voltage part of the system, where the use of an air insulated stack has made a significant contribution. HiTek Power has invested in analysis tools and designed a proprietary high voltage sleeve using reaction injection moulding equipment. Along with the reduction in size, these techniques have allowed the final output resistor to have a comparatively high value, reducing component stress and increasing reliability.
