High Voltage Power Supplies

Feature-rich high voltage power supplies for research and development

Project Peta-pico-Voltron offers  a free design of computer-controlled high voltage power supplies with detailed assembly and usage instructions. The Peta-pico-Voltron concept includes:

  • printed-circuit board (PCB) design
  • assembly, testing, and calibration instructions.
  • A graphic user interface to control the power supply and a library of functions to integrate the power supplies in computer-controlled test beds.

Peta-pico-voltron’s power supply was designed to drive electrostatic actuators, such as dielectric elastomer actuators and zipping actuators used in soft robotics, but its field of application extends beyond soft actuators to any project that requires precise high-voltage at low current.
