Pulse Reverse power supplies for plasma electrolytic oxidation applications

POWER PULSE high voltage pulse power supplies for molecular precision in plasma chemical coatings

Plasma chemical coatings are known internationally under various names. They are called electroceramic coating, plasma chemical oxidation (PCO®), plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO) or micro arc oxidation (MAO).

Using the plasma-chemical processes, very precise and resilient ceramic-like coatings can be produced on light metals such as aluminium, titanium, magnesium and their alloys. They protect the substrate extremely reliably against corrosion and wear – particularly in highly corrosive areas and with high mechanical strain. They also convince with excellent chemical and temperature resistance, as well as extremely high abrasion resistance.

Reliable surface protection

Decisive for the reliable protection of surfaces by plasma-chemical coatings is the precision of the coating process. In the optimum case, the coating is between 5 and 50 μm thick and as uniform as possible, depending on the application. For such high-quality results in plasma-chemical surface coating, the POWER PULSE high-voltage power supplies from plating electronic are a decisive factor.

Varying coating properties – through controlled voltage and current pulses

The POWER PULSE high-voltage pulse power supplies operate in the voltage range between 500 and 800 volts DC. They generate fast and precise rise and fall times of the pulse currents at very high frequencies - up to two or up to four Kilohertz, depending on the design and application.

The properties of the coatings can be varied through the composition of the electrolytes and through the electrical parameters of the process. With the POWER PULSE high DC voltage pulsed power supplies, we can precisely control all electronic manipulated variables: pulse sequence, pulse voltages, current density, polarity, working cycles and frequencies.

With the POWER PULSE high DC voltage pulsed power supplies you rely on our many years of experience and expertise in the precise control of pulsed voltage and pulsed current and the development of high-precision pulsed current sources and pulsed voltage power supplies.
