Abstract : A system for the recording of shock-wave velocities and the current and voltage in an exploding wire is described. The purpose of the present work is to create a source of shock waves with controllable (variable) parameters. The solution of the problem consists in the strict synchronization of the basic elements of the system. The circuitry and its operation are described and its components discussed. (Author)
