Product Summary

HiWatt lamp ballast programming software

The HiWatt UV arc lamp ballast, is a dual processor controlled solid-state switching power supply, that consists of two power stages; a square wave AC output converter & igniter for powering a mercury vapor or halide arc lamp, and an auxiliary DC power supply for providing 3.3VDC and 24VDC for logic and cooling fans. The HiWatt is designed to be factory or customer software configurable (via PC serial port) to allow the unit to adapt to a wide range of lamp types, and utility power sources. This capability will allow the unit to power 1 or 2 lamps (in series) in the range of 1kW to 10kW, with lamp voltages of 200 to 850V, from single or 3 phase AC sources of 208/240/480V 60Hz – 200/230/380/415V 50Hz. This programmability makes the Hi-Watt a truly universal arc lamp ballast, that will allow it to be utilized as a single unit solution for powering many types of lamps from power sources worldwide.

Note: The HiWatt is temporarily out of stock while a new version is in development.

PC/PLC Control Interface

The HiWatt has the ability to communicate to customer connected controllers or PCs via optically isolated digital logic signals, RS485 serial port or USB port. The logic signals include status lines for lamp ignited, lamp ready (warm-up-complete), and unit alarm, as well as control signals for lamp enable/disable, and lamp dimming (via PWM control, pulse frequency or 0 to 10V). Lamp cooling blower control is also provided, with blower On/Off signal, air temperature/flow regulation and lamp temperature monitoring. The unit can optionally power 24V DC cooling fans, and vary the fan speeds either open loop or based on lamp temperature. Units can also be networked to provide customer interface to multiple HiWatt slave units from the serial ports. This feature allows interface to multiple lamp systems cascaded on a single high speed product line. The optional touchscreen shown above is available for monitor and control of up to 8 units.
