The MiniVac controller is a quarter rack solid state power supply with self protection features, which generates high voltage using high frequency switching technology.
The MiniVac ion pump controller is designed to operate any type of ion pumps: Diode, Differential Diode, Triode and StarCell.
The MiniVac controller is a very compact and light unit capable of powering any size of pump at different operating pressure.
Small pumps (up to 8 l/s) can be operated at any pressure up to 1 x 10-3 mbar. Medium pumps (20 l/s to 60 l/s) can be operated at any pressure up to 1 x 10-5 mbar/Torr (continuous operation).
Large pumps (120 l/s to 400 l/s) can be operated at any pressure up to 2 x 10-6 mbar/Torr (continuous operation).
Medium/larger ion pumps must first be started with an appropriate control unit and pumped to a sufficiently low pressure where the current demand is below 8 mA.
The MiniVac controller is designed to withstand continuous operation at short circuit condition, without any damage to the ion pump or to the controller itself.
