PRODUCING DEPENDABLE WAVEFORMS
The leading name in compact Marx Generators since 1998, APELC focuses on high-power and high-voltage pulse generators in low inductance configurations for faster rise times, higher peak voltages, and increased load voltage efficiencies.
APELC’s Marx Generators operate in a variety of pulsed power applications, from flash X-ray, HPRF, and HPM, to test and evaluation (T&E), triggering, and material studies.
APELC Marx Generators
- Erected voltages up to 1 Megavolt (MV), with low source impedance, resulting in high system efficiency
- Energy storage from millijoules (mJ) up to kilojoules (kJ)
- Ultrafast rise times as low as 200 picoseconds (ps)
- Compact, portable versions for easy transport and durable field testing
- Unique geometric configurations tailored to customer preferences and requirements
