Advanced Energy AE Sparc-le V DC Pulsing ARC Handling Interface 3152330-003, 3152330-013

Repaired, tested and backed by a 90 day warranty. The Sparc-le V clears arcs in 5ms and reduces the number of hard arcs, resulting in reduced particulates and increased process time. Its small size allows for easy integration into existing systems with both old and new MDX products.

Control mode Local (from the front panel) or remote (through the User port of Host port)
Arc-handling characteristics
  • 50,000 arc/sec. maximum
  • 1 to 10 μs selectable arc reverse time
  • 1,800 V absolute maximum input DC voltage
  • 150 V minimum to 1,000 V maximum input operating range
  • 10 μs delay before next arc can be processed
Arc counting Counts and displays minor arcs, hard arcs, and total arc up to 9,999
Reverse voltage time
    Self-run & active arc

Adjustable in 1 μs increments, with reverse time range depending on frequency:

Frequency range (kHz) / Reverse time range (μsec)

  • 1 to 5 kHz & 20 to 50 / 1 to 10
  • 51 to 55 / 1 to 7
  • 56 to 60 / 1 to 6
  • 61 to 65 / 1 to 5
  • 66 to 70 / 1 to 4
  • 71 to 75 / 1 to 3
  • 80 to 100 / 1 or 2

Note: During Active Arc mode, the Sparc-le V is responding to conditions in the chamber; the frequency selection, then, serves only to limit the reverse recovery time. Thus for greatest flexibility in reverse recovery time, select 1 kHz.

AC input voltage

Use one of the following:

  • 100 V AC, 50/60 Hz, single phase, 500 mA fast-blow fuse
  • 115 V AC, 50/60 Hz, single phase, 500 mA fast-blow fuse
  • 200 V AC, 50/60 Hz, single phase, 250 mA fast-blow fuse
  • 230 V AC, 50/60 Hz, single phase, 250 mA fast-blow fuse
DC input voltage Any low-Z or standard-Z output from an MDX magnetron supply; however, the supervisory circuit requires a minimum of 1.5 A and 150 V before it is operational
DC current 30 A steady state maximum; No minimum current is required for operation. However, the supervisory circuit requires a minimum of 1.5 A and 150 V before it is operational.
Input & output DC polarity Negative input/output (positive floating less than 100 V from ground)
Noise < 88 dB
Ambient temperature
