2. STO-FLD-4U Flashlamp Driver

STO-FLD-4U is a family of flashlamp drivers (syn. laser power supplies) for pulsed flashlamp pumped solid-state lasers such as Nd:YAG, Er:YAG, Alexandrite etc. STO-FLD-4U drivers are all-in-one solutions and embed all the neccessary subsystems - capacitor bank, capacitor charging power supply, simmer supply and discharge circuit (discharge circuits).

STO-FLD-4U can be equipped with up to two output channels and up to two flashlamps connected in series can be connected to the every output. In that way each STO-FLD-4U is able to drive up to four flashlamps. Drivers are 19''-rack mounted. Height is 4U, depth is around 400mm.

All the important parameters - output voltage, pulse width and pulse repetition rate and others - can be adjusted via front panel user interface (7'' colour display and touch panel) and RS-232 machine interface.
