The AVR-10-B has the unique capability of generating very high power (200 Watts), wide 250 Volt pulses into load impedances as low as 10 Ohms (i.e., 25 Amps of current).
This makes the AVR-10-B useful for driving arrays of laser diodes and other high-current loads.
The output amplitude can be varied between 0 and 250 Volts, and the output pulse width can be varied from 2 ms to 2 ms. The maximum duty cycle is 3.2%, and the maximum pulse repetition frequency is 20 kHz. Output rise and fall times are 200 ns.
The AVR-10-B includes a complete computer control interface. This provides GPIB and RS-232 computer-control, as well as front panel keypad and adjust knob control of the output pulse parameters. A large backlit LCD displays the output amplitude, polarity, frequency, pulse width, and delay.
A delay control and a sync output are provided for oscilloscope triggering purposes. The instrument can also be triggered externally using a TTL-level pulse. The AVR-10-B is available with positive or negative outputs. A dual-polarity option is also available.
