Product Features:

  • New design & improved performance
  • Fundamental over 150,000 Hz (no RF or modulation)
  • Precision control through PFG Lab software
  • P3+ includes PFG2 function generator (no output for contact applications)
  • Light & Compact: 22 inches long and less than 7 lbs

Beginning in early 2009, Pulsed Technologies has introduced a new compact version of their P3 series plasma devices. The overwhelming demand for the P3pro, available to professionals and technical researchers only, identified the need for a relatively small, portable, full featured high performance unit for the general public.

Like the old P3 series devices, the new P3 compact device is available in numerous configurations including an internal PFG2 frequency and waveform generation subsystem.

All P3 version devices will incorporate the new proprietary high performance European plasma tubes developed specifically for all future P3 series devices.

The P3 system works with any of our external function generators: PFG1 or PFG2.
