Embedded Power Control's DS3800HPTK replacement, the EPCHPTL, is designed for reliability. We sell new, not refurbished, and include a one year warranty.
The GE DS3800HPTK was designed over 30 years ago, and has several weaknesses. The EPCHPTL was designed specifically to address the DS3800HPTK's weaknesses and increase thyristor life. Design features include:
- Highly efficient FET switches provide longer service life by reducing heating.
- Optical isolation for improved noise immunity and ground isolation.
- Fuse LED eases troubleshooting.
- Multilayer printed circuit board and conformal coating prevent attenuator circuit contamination.
- Improved gate pulse width to match original gating specifications.
- Silicone coated power resistors have improved durability over the original design.
- Resistors and diodes are spaced off the PCB to better dissipate heat.
- All components withstand the full industrial temperature range (-40 – 85° C).
- Direct replacement. Physical size is identical to DS3800HPTK. No wiring changes needed.
The EPCHPTL was introduced in 2010 and has been providing reliable service ever since in demanding, high-reliability applications. Every EPCHPTL is made in the USA.
