Artimus Robotics Hires High Voltage Electronics Expert Mike Doherty

Updated: Sep 14, 2023

Mike Doherty, former CEO of EMCO High Voltage Corporation and VP at XP Power, has joined Artimus Robotics to support the development of high voltage amplifiers, high voltage power supplies, and other specialty high voltage electronics. As a subject matter expert in the field of high voltage power electronics with over 40 years of design, manufacturing, and leadership experience, Mike will add valuable skills and insights to continuing the development of Artimus Robotics’ high voltage electronics products.

The current high voltage electronics products from Artimus Robotics are turnkey modules with integrated multichannel control (independent control of each output linearly or nonlinear from 0-100%). The high voltage amplifiers have portable power sources, they are compact and lightweight, and they have programmable waveforms. Mike will support the productization and cost reduction efforts of these products and the development of new features such as bipolar outputs, regulated outputs, and capacitive sensing.

About Artimus Robotics

Artimus Robotics designs and manufactures soft electric actuators and high voltage control electronics. The technology was inspired by nature (muscles) and spun out of the University of Colorado. HASEL (Hydraulically Amplified Self-healing ELectrostatic) actuator technology operates when electrostatic forces are applied to a flexible polymer pouch and dielectric liquid to drive shape change in a soft structure. These principles can be applied to achieve a contracting motion, expanding motion, or other complex deformations. For more information, please visit Artimus Robotics or contact
