Flashlamp drivers (embedded)

OEM Tech suggests several flashlamp driver solutions to form pulses on a flash lamp and provide simmer current during the interval between pulses. Complete flashlamp drivers in a case, supplemented with a capacitor bank and a control board inside, or flexible modular systems are available.

For figuring out pulse energy to the lamp, peak current, voltage on a lamp at the end of pulse, please, referr to our calculator page

FLD-nano flashlamp driver

FLD-nano is a low power (up to 100 W) compact but powerful flashlamp driver designed for air-cooled flashlamps. Driver’s major features are:

  • 24 V DC input
  • Average output power – up to 100 W
  • Up to 1000 V output voltage (to capacitor bank)
  • External triggering, no simmer

FLD-mini flashlamp driver

FLD-mini is a low power (up to 700 W) all-in-one flashlamp driver specially designed to pump Nd:YAG-like solid-state lasers. Driver’s major features are:

  • 24 (48) V DC input
  • Maximum output power – 300 W (up to 700 W)
  • Maximum output voltage – 450 V
    (optional 350/500/700 V)
  • Embedded 2 mF capacitor bank
    (or less, model dependent)
  • Flashlamp trigger and simmer circuits
  • RS-232 machine interface (RS-485 on request)

FLD-KIT developer kit

FLD-KIT or flashlamp driver developer kit is a set of modules, which could be combined into a 1 kW to 4 kW (up to 8 kW on request) power supply for a pulsed flashlamp. The set usually includes:
  • PCA-series capacitor charging power supply (1 kW, 2 kW or 4 kW)
  • CB-series boards combined into a capacitor bank
  • One or two NBU-1012 discharge circuits
  • LSCB controlling board (RS-232 or RS-485 interface)
  • PC software
  • Auxiliary power supplies, interconnection cables, etc.

LSCB control board

LSCB is a control board, which provides parameters control and coordinated operation of power modules by OEM Tech to drive laser or IPL system flashlamp(s). By default, LSCB supports the next devices:

  • One capacitor charger of PCA-series
  • One or two NBU-1012 discharge circuits (four channel version is available on request)
  • One Pockels cell driver of QBU-series
  • Minor features like IDC, footswitch, synchro input and outputs

Base interface is RS-232 (RS-485 on request). Simple PC software is supplied together with the module.
