Triggered Switching Spark Gaps

 Switching Spark Gaps PB


The brochure presents the series of triggered Switching Spark Gaps (TSGs) for use  in e.g. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) and Therapy (ESWT). Further applications are high  power pulsed excimer lasers, pulsed electric field pasteurization and generation of a spark plasma ray for surface cleaning and activation.


  • Long life time
  • High voltage and high current switching
  • Very short breakdown time
  • High reliability by robust design


  • High power impulse switching for medical applications (ESWT and ESWL)
  • High voltage pulse generator for pasteurization by pulse electric field and pulse generator for semiconductor components cleaning equipment
