The IOGHP10 high powered unit uses a variable duty cycle clocked oscillator driving a FET field effect transistor in turn switching into a resonant transformer. The transformer output is fed to a full wave voltage consisting of a number of stages that convert and multiply the peak value of the voltage waveform. Out put resistors help control the high capacitive discharge currents that could damage the multiplier section. Adjustable output with reactance limited current is open and short circuit protected.
Unit is housed in a combination gray PVC and clear plastic tubing enclosing the multiplier section. Controls are safety switch and charge field intensity adjustment with push button power control mounted in the pistol grip butt. This section also houses the 8 "AA" battery cell holder and has a strip of conductive metal tape to make contact to the users hand. This forces the users body to the system ground and provides a virtual ground for charge return. Unit is ruggedly built and can be hazardous if used incorrectly. Labeled dangerous.
Hazard Warning: Do not use these ion devices in an "explosive atmosphere" such as around paint fumes, gas, glue fumes, or any other potentially ignitable environment.

This was a fun project to put together I completed the build and am trying to figure out a few details before testing/using. For example, per the guide C4 is not used, however on the PCB there are spots for C4 and C4B...so it's unclear if C4 should be placed in C4B or just not used at all. 3 additional resistors were included but I don't know if they were substitutes for the 47k resistors or the test load. I plan to add the additional 2 stages and it was great that they included holes for that.
One critique on the design is the spacing of the holes on the multiplier section felt a hair too close and made it tough to line up the caps in a straight line.
The finished product looks amazing and I was thoroughly impressed with the design and quality of the kit parts. Highly recommended for those interested in engineering as you can learn a LOT from building it.
