Equipment

The EB04 series e-beam power supply equipment for electron beam welding machines is designed and manufactured by Genvolt. It covers power from 100W to 2kW and voltage from 60kV to 160kV. Each unit has an inbuilt DC filament power supply and grid bias. The current of the filament and grid bias voltage are measured directly at high level and transfer to a control system via optical fibre.

This series of high voltage power supply adopts high-frequency inversion and smart control technologies. It features  advanced technology and high reliability.

The e-beam unit uses a unique high-power resonant inverter designed by Genvolt. The input rectification, filtering and inversion modules are integrated together on a heat sink supported with a forced air cooling structure. The EB04 series power supply has well-designed protection for overvoltage, overcurrent, overheating and discharge inspection guaranteeing continuous operation.

Controls

There is a red emergency stop button, green power switch and status indicator on the front panel.
The high voltage can be shut down immediately by pressing the red emergency stop button. Rotate the button clockwise, then the button will reset and cancel interlock for high voltage. The green power switch is used to switch on/off main power source. The status indicator shows the working status of the power switch, constant voltage or current status, overvoltage alarm, overcurrent alarm for filament, chain reaction and discharging prompt.

Safety

This power supply contains high voltages and power. Contact with the output may result in fatal injury. It should only be used and maintained by trained personnel.

Before opening the power supply, please check following:
1. Whether the power supply and its environment is clean and dry;
2. Whether there are irrelevant items nearby the output or load of high voltage;
3. Make sure the return current from the load is well grounded via the grounding bolt at the back.
