1200W High Voltage Power Supplies

Spellman’s SL150kV rack mount high voltage power supply is designed for scientific and industrial OEM applications requiring 150kV at 1200 watts in a compact cable connected standard sized rack. Models are available in positive, negative or reversible polarity.

The SL150kV rack-mount supply is a cable connected power supply and is fully arc and short circuit protected. Excellent regulation specifications are provided along with outstanding stability performance. The vacuum encapsulated high voltage output section assures reliable corona free operation by eliminating any concerns due to environmental factors.

The typical applications for the SL150kV cable connected, rack-mount power supply are:

  • Electrostatics
  • HiPot Testing
  • Semiconductor Processing
  • Capacitor Charging

Electronic Component (Power Source)

SL150KV series is intended for installation as a component of a system. It is designed to meet CE standards, with conditions of acceptance often being: customer provided enclosure mounting, EMC filtering, and appropriate protection, and isolation devices. The SL150KV series is not intended to be operated by end users as a stand-alone device. The SL150KV series power supply can only be fully assessed when installed within a system, and as a component part within that system.
