Excelitas Technologies TR-36A


Excelitas Technologies’ high voltage transformers have been being manufactured since 1956. These high voltage transformers come in standard and custom designs and are available with a wide range of input and output voltages. The Excelitas Technologies TR-36A ensures high performance through state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques including vacuum impregnation, vacuum encapsulations, and meter-mix and dispense systems. External triggering uses a high voltage trigger pulse to create a thin ionized streamer between the anode and cathode within the lamp. The coupling of the high voltage transformer to the lamp may be accomplished using a thin nickel wire wrapped around the surface of the lamp envelope as shown. Most flashlamp applications use a trigger coil to produce high-voltage pulses of short duration, usually a few microseconds or less. Two different types of circuits and transformers are used to introduce the voltage necessary to achieve ionization – series injection triggering and external triggering with the associated coils. Other techniques used to couple external trigger transformers are reviewed in the technical paper “Design Considerations for Triggering of Flashlamps”
