Pulse is an English word meaning heart rate or heartbeat. Electrically, it means a current or radio wave that flows for a very short time. It is also known as impulse current. A series of very short duration ON/OFF currents, such as high-frequency pulses, is also called a pulse. There is some case of a single wave. Waves with the same width at the top and bottom are called square waves.

Pulses are used to control stepping motors and servo motors, as well as to signal CDs and DVDs.
Matsusada Precision offers SK series, AMP series, AP series, and a broad lineup of high voltage amplifiers that can supply high-voltage pulses. Our high voltage amplifiers are suited for various applications such as beam deflection, corona discharge, and dielectric strength testing, in addition to solar cell panel evaluation and piezo drivers.
Note that, however, pulse signals can be a source of noise because the power supply is repeatedly turned on and off. When you use some models in Japan, they apply to "High-frequency use equipment" depending on the output device of high voltage pulses. The products require a license for use from the Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications under the provisions of Article 100 of the Radio Law. The requirement applies to use in Japan. Please follow the laws of the country or region as of usage.
Before installation, confirm the necessary parameters and also requirements of the high-frequency use equipment facility.
