With the floating option, TECHNIX provides insulation for a maximum external voltage of 10% of the full voltage range of the generator. This means that we provide an insulation of 110% of Vout max on one or the other terminals references to ground/chassis.
Here's how the formula is expressed : Vinsulation : |Vout| + |Vext|
Vout is the Output voltage of the generator
Vext is the maximum external potential introduced on one or the other pole of the generator (refered to the chassis)
- For 12 kV Floating Generator with standard floating option:
In this example, external voltage represented in blue is introduced upon the negative terminal at the maximum value of 1200V for respecting Insulation. Voltage on positive terminal referenced to groung will vary from 1.2 to 13.2 kV.
Remark: In the case of no external Voltage is introduced, the output voltages will balance automotically at half of the Output Voltage, referenced to the chassis. We still recommend adding protections between each generator output and the chassis (transcient or varistor).
At half scale, with no external voltage, the terminal voltages are automatically balanced referenced to ground.
For 15kV floating generator with Vext =5kVmax
This is a special floating option since the external voltage can represent more than 10 % of Vout.
If an external voltage of 5kV is introduced upon positiive terminal, V- will vary between -10kV (for Vout = 15kV) to 5kV (for Vout = 0V)
If an external voltage of -5kV is introduced upon positive terminal, V- will vary between -5kV (for Vout = 0V) to 10kV (for Vout = 15kV)
CONTROL IS GROUND REFERENCED : with our floating option, whole electronics of control is referenced to ground and insulation is made inside of the machine providing a maximum of safety.
This allows the user to work in safety even on front panel/ in case of continuity fault of any component, there is no risk to have High Voltage or external Voltage feedback.
