Ultrasonic power supplies for plastics welding

GX-Series microprocessor-controlled ultrasonic power supplies are designed for the company?s 40, 20, and 15 kHz welding frequencies, and are available in 2200W, 1700W, 1200W, and 700W for ultrasonic welding presses and actuators (both new and existing models). All GX units have automatic frequency tuning?matching the generator to the ?stack? frequency?and come with a convenient horn frequency display. System keypad navigation offers simple, easy-to-understand language displays and intuitive, logical command flow. Welding can be done by digital time, energy, or distance modes. Digital amplitude control is also included on all models and amplitude setting is automatically saved in job memory.The units are over 30% smaller than previous E and F models, and they?re designed for plug-and-play compatibility with all stands and presses currently in the field using the company?s E and F Series power supplies. All units are configured to accept easy-to-load flash-ROM program updates to ease future enhancements and upgrades in the field. Additional features include multiple job storage; calibration pulse prior to every weld cycle; ultrasonics on load scale; digital force triggering; PLC I/O ports for external job sequencing requirements; upper and lower weld limit settings; back-lit LCD display; and RS232 serial port printer output. All units include soft-start overload protection circuitry; load regulation circuitry; line voltage regulation circuitry; and good part/bad part output signaling.
