The high-voltage switches described here have available on-time and are comparable with classical solid-state relays; they are turned on as long as a control signal is applied to the control input. BEHLKE HTS switches are actively controlled devices (no avalanche technique) and show highly reliable and reproducible switching behaviour regardless of temperature, voltage or bad condition. Compared to conventional high voltage switching elements, such as gas discharge tubes and spark gaps, BEHLKE solid-state switches do not show aging effects and achieve life times by several orders of magnitude higher than any other classical high voltage switch.
The switches are very easy to handle and only require a simple +5 VDC auxiliary supply (4.5 to 5.5 VDC) and a TTL-compatible control signal.
