Paper Abstract

A spark gap trigger monitor (SGTM) system has been developed to monitor the relative timing accuracy of up to 12 spark gaps. The SGTM employs light from the spark gaps to provide timing information. The SGTM is now in use on a six-stage Marx generator. In addition to monitoring normal performance, the SGTM also helps diagnose problems and faults in the trigger system.
