Octal High Voltage Biasing Supply

Steering an electron beam, or biasing a polarimeter requires numerous high voltage supplies. Typically these are built in a rack, using power supplies with far more current than needed. Steve Covert designed and built an octal supply prototype that is housed in a 1U rack housing, containing (8) high voltage biasing modules. These modules are current limited to about 1mA, and output either a positive or negative voltage depending on the model: 1000V, 2000V or 3000V.

All set points and read backs are accessed via the RS232 port (Ethernet will be available on final version).

This page is incomplete.. Steve did not finish documenting the supply due to his surprise layoff.
