A great variety of trigger systems for pseudospark switches have been described in current publications. In most cases the trigger units are mounted at the grounded cathode. However, in some cases, a specific requirement for triggering is required, namely, that the trigger unit be located at the cathode. Direct application of previous experience, as applied to these cases, leads to a rather intricate design for both the mechanical parts of the trigger unit and the electric circuit. This paper proposes a simple triggering method for such conditions.
