Brochures Describe PDX Series of Compact, CE-Certified, Mid-Frequency Power Supplies for Plasma Processes

FORT COLLINS, Colorado (February 27, 1998)—Two brochures from Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (AE) describe the PDX series of highly reliable, light-weight, compact, CE-certified, mid-frequency power supplies for plasma processes. The proven PDX series has an actual MTBF in excess of 1,000,000 hours in the field. These easy-to-integrate power supplies deliver precise power for such application as:
  • Plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD)
  • Etching
  • Dielectric sputtering
  • Plasma polymer processes

The single-phase input PDX offers outputs of up to 1250 W with a frequency range of 325 to 450 kHz. The three-phase input PDX delivers up to 8000 W with a range of 235 to 460 kHz.


  • Sinusoidal RF output with low harmonic distortion
  • Operation over a wide frequency range
  • Tight output power regulation based on user setpoints
  • Internal loadmatching
  • Virtually no stored energy at the output
  • Arc suppression that reacts in less than 2 ms
