Sorensen SFA Series


The SFA family builds on the industry leading Sorensen SGA series to provide a high power current source for laser diode applications. State of the art high power laser diodes require well-regulated current control to avoid catastrophic damage. Under anomalous operating conditions, excessive stored energy in the output circuit of the power supply can result in peak stresses that can permanently damage the device. Providing a constant current regulation mode only, the SFA’s low stored energy output minimizes damage potential for sensitive devices as well as enabling a current slew rate of up to 400 A/msec. The typical low output capacitance varies between 3µF to 10µF. Voltages from 60V to 160V, Power from 5kW to 150kW and Currents from 31A up to 2500A are possible. Standard Interfaces like GPIB, RS232 and Ethernet (LXI) provide easy Integration and remote control.
