ADVANCED ENERGY INDUSTRIES Excelsys FC1500 fully integrated capacitor charger and multiple output power supply delivers constant charge power and eliminates the need for multiple power supplies in medical laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy equipment. By delivering 1500 W constant power over all charge voltages from 200V to 1000V, product enables faster charging of capacitors when used at lower voltages in mixed technology systems. This helps reduce treatment times. Conventional systems also require multiple power supplies to provide high voltage inputs for capacitor charging and low voltage ac-dc conversion for system electronics such as touch panels, pumps, cooling elements and other treatments. A fully integrated capacitor charging and ac-dc power supply, device addresses these power demands with a single unit.
