Trigger generators

Montena offers high voltage trigger generators based on solid state switches.

The GT50K series has been designed as trigger source for Marx generators and for trigatrons (triggerable spark gap switches).

The GT50K can replace the obsolete PT55 pulser/trigger generator from Pacific-Atlantic Electronics, as mechanical dimensions and attachment points are the same.


  • Solid-state switching
  • Long lifetime
  • No need of external high voltage power source
  • Can be triggered by a 5 V digital signal or through its optical trigger input
  • Compact design
