The box takes a high-voltage input through a SHV-BNC connector with RG-58 coaxial cable, which feeds directly onto the PCB. The "HV" output is to be connected to the two sides of a spark gap. (A real spark should never occur here, in order to avoid high voltage levels on the oscilloscope.) The "PROBE" output is to be connected to an oscilloscope to measure the ionization of air between the contacts of the spark gap.
