Mid-February 2014, Colorado Power Electronics successfully designed, tested and shipped a 100kV power supply. For its output, the unit is a surprisingly-small form factor.

Utilizing ceramic capacitor/diode multipliers combined with a high-turn output inductor and toroidal capacitor, this unit is both impressive in performance and appearance.

Control of this unit includes an easy-to-read LCD display combined with an embedded push-button keypad. Output voltage and current are monitored and displayed on a live IMG_20140206_093257_264graph on the display.

Even the main contactor which shorts the output of the unit is custom-built and verified to function up to the maximum voltage.
