The main power unit
This new power supply has been designed with flexibility in mind, in order to be useful for various high voltage thruster experiments. The specifications for this power supply are as follows:
Output voltage : 50 kV max.
Output power : 1000 Watts max.
Running modes : 10 channel / or any combination in parallel
Weight : 3.1 kg
The remote control receiver
Each channel can be controlled at a distance of up to 30 metres with an infra red remote control unit. Any combination of channels can be connected in parallel to increase output power. If all channels are connected together a 1 Kilowatt hv output is obtained.
On board digital voltage monitor
I have added an onboard voltage monitor to eliminate the need of the high voltage probe during the experiments. Unlike the high voltage probe, the reading on the onboard display does not suffer from parasitic capacitance and load impedance.
