400 volts. SCR SWITCH In conventional operation of an SCR, the anode current, initiated by a gate pulse, rises to its maximum value in about 1 microsecond. During this time the anode-to-cathode impedance drops from open circuit to a fraction of an ohm. In injection laser pulsers, however, the duration of the anode cathode pulse is much less than the time required for the SCR to tum on completely. Therefore, the anode-to-cathode impedance is at the level of 1 to 10 ohms throughout most of the conduction period.
