5040 High Voltage Capacitor Charger

The 5040, high voltage capacitor charger has a 1kJ/second charging capacity and is available from 10kV up to 60kV. As a high voltage power supply these modules are capable of producing 2kW power peak output at short intervals, which makes them ideal for charging applications.

The capacitor charger is designed to operate from a wide range of DC input supply, such as a battery pack, but can be made available to work from an AC input supply if required*.

For CW (Continuous Wave) operation, the ripple and stability can be tailored to suit your own specification.

* Please contact Genvolt if you have a specific mains input enquiry.

Output Voltage Model illustrated is 50kV. Higher voltages if required. Both positive and negative polarities are available.
Output Current Peak current is 40mA for the example shown.
Duty Cycle The model above is designed for low duty cycle operation (<10%). Continuous operation with appropriate heatsinking can be provided.
Input Voltage The unit is designed to operate from a DC source such as a battery pack. For 1kJ/sec 2kW pk operation, a 100-140VDC supply is required. (However, for 500J/sec 1kW pk, operation from 20-48V is available).
Input Current Less than 25A maximum, depending on input voltage. (50A for low voltage use)
Environment 0 to 50°C ambient. Non-condensing atmosphere.
Weight Model shown is 13kg
Stability, Ripple, etc The unit is designed for capacitor charging with a maximum PRF of 100Hz. For CW operation, ripple and stability can be tailored to suit the customer’s own specification.
Control Interface Active low HV ON input. 0-10V HV and current limit programming, OC-TTL constant voltage/current outputs, 0-10V HV and current monitor outputs.
