The AVR-9 series of pulse generators offer fast medium voltage pulsing with high current capability. These models are ideal for driving solenoids, pulse testing of MOSFETs, and other applications.
Model AVR-9A-B provides up to 12 Volts into load impedances of 10 Ω or greater, with rise times of 10 ns and pulse widths from 200 ns to 2 ms. The pulse repetition frequency (PRF) is variable from 0 to 50 kHz, and the maximum output duty cycle is 50%.
Model AVR-9B-B is similar, but provide higher amplitudes of up to 20V into 10 Ω. The rise and fall times are 15 ns.
Model AVR-9C-B can drive even lower load impedances, providing up to 12 Volts into a load of 1Ω or higher (i.e., up to 12 Amps of current). The rise and falls times are 50 ns, and the pulse width is variable from 200 ns to 200 us. The PRF is variable from 0 to 5 kHz, and the maximum output duty cycle is 10%.
Model AVR-9D-B has the highest current rating, providing amplitudes of up to 20V into 1Ω (i.e., up to 20 Amps of current). The rise and falls times are 80 ns, and the pulse width is variable from 200 ns to 200 us. The PRF is variable from 0 to 5 kHz, and the maximum output duty cycle is 10%.
All models include a complete computer control interface. This provides GPIB and RS-232 computercontrol, as well as front panel keypad and adjust knob control of the output pulse parameters. A large back-lit LCD displays the output amplitude, polarity, frequency, pulse width, and delay.
