The release of hvps-x means the end of development and support for the original SHVPS described on this page. The files and instructions remain accessible, but we won’t provide upgrades or support. The reason for stopping support is that we don’t have any SHVPS left to work on, nor any LabVIEW license to work on the user interface. If you want to assemble a high voltage power supply, we recommend our new hvps-x.
In the spirit of our open-source project we are now developing a python interface to replace (or complement) the LabVIEW interface.
The python interface is multiplatform and can therefore run on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, etc. It is designed with touchscreens in mind, and is easy to use on tablets, or even a Raspberry Pi with the official 7” touchscreen. Keyboards shortcuts makes the use of the interface easy to use on a system with a physical keyboard.
