Lamp testing with the RF High Voltage Generator (AG0201HV-TS)
Our High Voltage RF generators are for applications such as incandescent lamp testing. It is most commonly operated in HV Burst mode, in RF pulses from 10 ms to 300 ms. As bursting is enabled, energy is delivered to the base of the lamp, and generates plasma inside of it.
Rapid defined by test PLC interruption of RF burst, triggers verification process by selective band light meter that is measuring plasma decay. If the decay is shorter than required for that type of a lamp reference, it is a reject. If the decay is longer than reference time, it is a good lamp and QC confirms it as good.
In this video, Tom demos the HV generator from T&C Power Conversion in a simulation for lamp testing.
