Marx Generator


Part Number: MG10-1C-150NF

The MG10-1C-150NF is a robust Marx Generator developed for breakdown and flashover studies using a MIL-STD-188-125 E1 waveform when an internal 60 Ohm resistor is used. An internal peaking circuit allows the generator to meet the <20 ns rise-time requirement of the MIL-STD. Because of its rise-time, pulse-width, and relatively low impedance, the generator was identified as a potential source for HPM loads.


  • Maximum open circuit voltage: 350 kV
  • Voltage into 60 Ohms: 350 kV
  • Maximum peak voltage into matched load: 175 kV
  • Maximum repetition rate: 10 Hz
  • Energy per pulse: 920 J
  • Internal peaking circuit
  • Pulse rise-time: <20 ns
  • Pulse-width (FWHM): ~500 ns
  • Optional internal 60 Ohm load
