High Voltage Power Supply Kit

High voltage Power Supply Kit
Construction Manual 470KB PDF file.

Universal high voltage power supply kit. This HV power source may be used in a variety of different high voltage applications, like:

kirlian photography
HeNe Laser tube power supply
x-ray tubes
plasma tubes
negative ion generators, etc.

Features variable frequency using a potentiometer. Also has a High-Low frequency range switch.

In addition this circuit to be either be battery powered 9-25 VDC (maximum 25V @ 300 mA or less), or powered from a wall transformer also 9-25 V (maximum 25V @ 300 mA or less) with either an AC or DC output.

While batteries provide the advantage of portability (for fieldwork), when using any power supply that can supply a greater current than 300 mA. one should put a current limiting resistor in series with the power supply. As an example, when powering circuit from 24 volt lead acid batteries (2 x 12V batteries) one should add a 84 ohm 10 watt resistor in series between the power supply and circuit to limit current to the circuit to 300 mA.

Frequency & Voltage Output

Using the standard C1 and C4 capacitors the low frequency range is approximately 700-1300 Hz. The high frequency range is approximately 800-2000 Hz. Using a 24 VDC input voltage to the circuit, the voltage output, measured using a spark gap and spherical electrodes is approximately 10-14 KV. By changing capacitors C1 and C4, one can vary the operating frequency and output voltage of the circuit, see chart below.
