Ideal for testing doorknob and high voltage disk ceramic capacitors to over 30kV.
These low powered devices may be used for battery or solar applications. They are short circuit proof and suitable for capacitor charging without a current limiting resistor. They may also be used as low power high voltage power supplies.
Small lightweight unit measuring 5-½ x 2-¼ x 1-½” converts 12V DC to over 30kV DC for charging capacitors or just supplying a potential. Use the included adapter for wall power (runs on 110-240VAC for US or international operation), or can be used with 8 AA alkaline batteries in a cradle (not included) that can produce >90,000 Joules (!). The charge rate is about 0.25 joule/sec. Higher voltage units available on request.
This device is best-suited for use with our ceramic capacitors or similar (taking care to not overcharge the smaller capacitors). For charging photo flash and electrolytic capacitors (or similar), the CHARGE800V is better suited.
An external voltmeter is required to monitor charge. Small value capacitors must be charged by merely tapping the charge push button, as voltage value can be easily and quickly exceeded.
