PS5050 model flashlamp driver is designed for flashlamp-pumped lasers and establishes itself as an updated version of PS5010 driver. PS5050 features microprocessor control and back illuminated LCD display where all output parameters of power supply are conveniently displayed. Flashlamp driver comprises one or several charging modules, a discharge and simmer module and a control circuit. Such design allows the unit to be operated with the utmost ease and convenience. The unit is fitted into a 19” standard housing and may be comfortably mounted in your power supply stands. The unit is manufactured in conformity with EN61010 and EN55011 standards. Driver can be remotely controlled through RS‑232 and CAN (Controller Area Network) interface.
