In standard models, the generator/charger can be remote controlled connector when pin 8 of the remote is connected to ground.
As soon as the connection is done, Remote Control led on the front panel lights up.

Operating in Remote Control mode is the same as in Local mode. In this mode, all local resources are inoperative except:

  • Reading the setting values with Preset push button
  • Voltage display and Current display and
  • Stopping HV delivery is always possible by pushing HV off button

Programming example

For a 20 KV, 1500 W generator: Vmax = 20 KV, Imax = 75 mA.
Wished values: Output Voltage = 8 KV, Output Current = 60 mA.
Pin 17 (Voltage setting) has to be: 4 Volts and pin 14 (Current setting): 8 Volts.

The same scale for reading Output values:
A 10 Volts voltage on pin 5 (Image of the HV voltage) will indicate the generator is delivering 20 kV and a 4 V voltage on pin 6 (Image of the Current) will indicate the Output Current is 30 mA.

Management of Voltage and Current settings in remote control

Two modes of control can be used:

1) Standard Remote Control
For Remote controlling Voltage and Current, an external 0-10 V signal has to be sent on pins 14 and 17.

2) Control by front panel
For setting Voltage and Current from the potentiometers located on front panel, following connections have to be realized:
- pin 12 to pin 17 for Voltage
- pin 13 to pin 14 for Current
