AMPS Series

AMPS: Ultra high speed high voltage amplifier

Amplifier AMPS Series

Maximum slew rate 1200V/μs ! High speed high voltage/large current amplifier

AMPS series is an ultra-high speed high voltage amplifier. It realized high voltage output of ±20kHz and very high slew rate 1200V/μs. The large current type of peak current 4A is also selectable.

Ultra high slew rate 1200V/μs

±10kV output model and ±20kV output model achieved the conventional double high-speed response of slew rate 1200V/μs. Laser modulation and beam deflection at unprecedented high speed are possible.

High-speed response of frequency bandwidth 100kHz

Frequency bandwidth with actual load is as high as 100kHz, and solve the problem of “When actual operation with load, the response become slow.” Ideal for higher speed printer or material evaluation testing.

For measuring voltage and / or current

When the voltage at load is lower than the rated maximum output of AMPS series, constant voltage and high speed operation is possible by sinking the output current with current sink feature. As example of the development of ceramic and electrophotography process, by current sink, it is possible to absorb the voltage of a capacitive load quickly or to perform diselectrification smoothly. And, because of double peak current of rated current in DC output, particularly, rise characteristics for the capacitive load can be improved.

Characteristic of amplifier

Frequency Response

Response of Matsusada amplifiers are described as "Frequency bandwidth". When swing the output with sinusoidal waveform with rated resistive load, output swing(amplitude)is reduced as input frequency become faster. Frequency response in the specification is frequency fc is where output swing is 90% approx.(-1dB).(fig.1)
In case clear output waveform is required, please select a HV amplifier which has high enough frequency bandwidth against required frequency. In general 3 to 5 times more frequency bandwidth for sinusoidal waveform, about 10 times more for rectangular waveform, is required. In case of insufficient frequency bandwidth the output swing shall be reduced, and also the phase difference be large, so some solutions, such as monitoring output waveform, shall be required.

Rise Time(step response)

Step response can be indicated with rise time.(fig.2) Usually the rise time of amplifier of response(=bandwidth) fc(Hz) is givin by a formula below.
tr ≒ 0.35 / fc
The fall time tf is equals to tr.

Slew Rate

The responsiveness of our high speed amplifier is determined with slew rate(SR). The step responsibility of our amplifier is as shown in fig.3.
SR = 1200V / μs In case of output amplitude is smaller the response time become shorter.

Capacitive Load

When operated with a capacitive load of more than 100pF(including floating capacity of output cable), the output might oscillate. In such a case put a high voltage resister of 100Ω(1000pF) in series to output. Please also note that with capacitive load the bandwidth is limited according to the formula of right note. In case of corona discharge, larger current than rating can draw and night damage power supply. In this case too place an output resister to limit the current as same as in case of with capacitive load.
