Re: High Voltage Probe Instability

If you are reading DC output, it may represent full charging of the multiplier. If AC then possibly heating in the divider or even the variac. It is after all only 5%.

.... but the problem that I
am having is that the high output voltage measured through the
HV probe keeps slowly but steadily climbing while the input re-
mains relatively constant. For instance, with an 80 volt input,
the HV output initially reads around 28,400 volts but after around
10 minutes of constant measurement, the HV output has crept
up past 30,000 volts, at least according to my HV probe/DVM
