High voltage electronics products from Artimus Robotics feature high voltage amplifiers with integrated high voltage power supplies. These specialized high voltage amplifiers are turnkey products with integrated multichannel control modules (independent control of each output linearly or nonlinear from 0-100%), portable power sources (battery), serial API communication with control of charge/discharge rates, digital control, programmable waveforms, and variable voltage outputs. Current efforts are focused on the productization and cost reduction of these products and the development of new features such as bi-polar outputs, load-regulated outputs, capacitive sensing, four quadrant with linear through zero, and compatibility with resistive or conductive loads.
These high voltage amplifiers with built-in high voltage power supplies were originally developed to drive and control HASEL electroactive polymer actuators from Artimus Robotics. However, a high voltage low power module that is portable, compact and lightweight, and lower cost than lab scale benchtop high voltage power supplies is applicable to not only electroactive polymers like dielectric elastomers and HASELs, but other electrostatic-based applications such as electrolaminates, electropneumatics, electrohydrodynamics, electrostatic chucks, piezoelectrics, electrophotography, electrospinning, electrophoresis, electrorheology, electrostatic flocking, corona charging, MEMS, mass spectrometry, electron beam steering, and ion beam steering.

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 email@example.com.
