Your Lifter1 is now ready for testing, you need only to connect a HV power supply which is able to give about 30-40 KV at 500uA. Th HV positive pole is connected to the thin wire and the negative pole to the aluminum sheet.

BE CAREFUL, USE EXTREME CAUTION !!!, this device use High Voltage, ALWAYS switch off the input and discharge the output to the ground through 10k/2W resistor before touch it. These plans are not intended for the inexperienced. User of this document should be very carefull and experienced in High-Voltage electronics to try anything out ! If you do it the risk of any results is just yours. I take no responsibility of anything that might happen.

Ready to Launch ? see below :

The Lifter1 works very well with a simple 30KV power supply ( see the details and diagram )

It is also possible to use the THT power supply output from an old PC Color monitor ( see the photo above )
