The PWM-OCmi is an ultra miniature power pulse width modulation control circuit. Despite its tiny size the PWM-OCmi is capable of controlling a large amount of power which makes it great for embedding in your projects without taking up space. The PCB can also be screwed to a suitable heatsink to improve the device’s power handling capabilities.
The OCmi is primarily designed for use in high voltage projects such as Ignition coil driving, flyback control, magnetic resonance experiments, or any other application which would generate significant transient voltages. For low voltage projects, we recommend the OCm as this is more efficient at low voltages. You can switch mains powered devices by adding a Solid State Relay to the output. When driving ignition coils, don’t forget to keep the duty setting low to prevent overloading the circuit. For high power output use the PWM-OCXi v2.
It has a range of onboard components for dealing with transients and voltage spikes caused by noisy loads like ignition coils. This allows the device to run with high performance levels even when in a demanding environment. Also included is a built in thermal shutdown feature which will disable the PWM output if the switching transistor is too hot. The output is automatically restarted once it has cooled again.
The PCB contains four connector pads at the perimeter which allow the device to be enabled, or interrupted from another signal source, or even another Power Pulse Modulator. They also allow for monitoring the onboard oscillator, or modulation of its frequency.
The compact design is built in the UK on a high quality dual layer PCB with 2oz copper (twice as much as standard circuits) for durability and performance. This high quality, low cost PWM-OCmi is ideal for embedding in your projects due to its small size and adjustability. The onboard timing capacitor is fitted in a socket on the PCB so that it can easily be changed for producing other frequency ranges.
