3kV open circuit at up to 15ma short circuit (2kV 10ma under load), requiring 12vdc 800ma power (adapter not included). Full short and open circuit protection, suitable for battery operation. Full metal enclosure 2-3/8 x 1-1/2 x 1-1/8" in size with 3-3/16" mounting centers, 7" input leads and 18" output leads. This is an excellent hobby unit as it is virtually indestructible and can be used with a voltage multiplier to generate up to 20kV at 1ma with our 4-stage multiplier (CH20), or 30kV at 0.5 ma with our 8-stage multiplier (CH30) at a low safe current. It is an excellent driver for neon displays of up to eight feet, and this unit is also used as the driver for our HV250 high-voltage DC power supply which produces 25,000 DC volts.
These low-cost, high-voltage sources can operate from a 12 volt battery for field use, or a wall adapter for normal 110 vac use (not included, but sold seperately if a power supply is required). Virtually indestructible circuitry is open and short circuit protected and will withstand reasonable amounts of EMP. Output is end point grounded and is at a high frequency of 25 to 35 khz. This higher frequency allows easy conversion to high voltage DC sources using voltage multiplier stacks. The direct high frequency output can be used to power plasma and gas discharge display tubes. All models include appropriate input and output leads for easy terminations.
