Pulsed Power Technologies


Arcflash Labs, LLC specializes in ultra-high energy pulsed power supplies.


Arcflash Labs, LLC was founded in 2017 with the goal of advancing and demonstrating novel pulsed-power supply technologies to disrupt a variety of industries with 21st century alternatives:

Spacelift – Mass drivers and deep space propulsion
 – Portable defibrillators
Welding – Portable arc welders
Defense – Counter-UAS and high velocity accelerators
Firearms – Low noise, adjustable-velocity EM guns


Currently, Arcflash Labs offers ultra-high energy pulsed power systems as stand-alone boards, components, and fully assembled electromagnetic accelerators.  Currently, we are the world’s first and only corporation offering portable EM accelerator technologies to the general public.

Arcflash Labs was founded by David Wirth and Jason Murray, both Aerospace Engineers, former US Air Force officers, and experts in pulsed power supply development with 25 years of combined experience.  Both have a longstanding record of success in developing high-profile electromagnetic demonstrators and power supplies for industrial, commercial and hobbyist devices.
