Specific Pulsed Power Components

Composants spécifiques Haute Puissance Pulsée - ITOPP

ITOPP has developed a large range of components and instruments adapted to Pulsed Power.


    A fast switching specialist, ITOPP offers a range of tailored switches to fit the requirements of our customers.

    The key parameters to be defined to select the optimized solution are:

    • Operating voltage
    • Maximum current
    • Transferred charge (number of coulombs)
    • Pulse duration
    • Acceptable jitter
    • Operating frequency
    • Available volume

    ITOPP can deliver gas switches (all types of spark gaps), vacuum switches (thyratrons or pseudospark), or solid switches.

    Measurement sensors

    In addition to their array of standards sensors,  ITOPP can develop and provide made-to-order sensors based on client specifications:

    • Compact resistive dividers
    • Capacitive divider
    • Rogowsky coils

    High power charge and discharge tanks

    ITOPP, a manufacturing leader of pulsed power components has developed a wide range of charge and discharge tanks. The tanks are optimized to meet client requirements concerning charging voltage and the energy to be dissipated.

    The tanks contribute to the safety of the systems under voltage and as a consequence the safety of the operators. They also ensure the protection of the power supply during the pulse discharge.

    ITOPP designs charge and discharge tanks to specification for high power devices from 0 to 100 kV.

      Pre-magnetization bays

      Developed especially for ITOPP LTD generators, the pre-magnetization bays allow the optimization of magnetic performances used to increase voltage. They can also be adapted to serve as pulse current sources with a maximum amplitude of a few kA and a quarter of a period of a few dozens to a few hundreds of microseconds,  down to tenths and hundredths of microseconds.
