I just wanted to inform you, that I had two EHT trips after you left .... One happened during my write and one shortly after that. 

Thank you for your report!  I see other reports in the RAITH list cue as 


Lets return to the former protocol not to exceed 19900 Volts of 
Acceleration Voltage on the RAITH. 
Be sure to perform all controls through the RAITH interface. 

Having not experienced any trips in my testing whatsoever I am very 
surprised.  Last weekend and this week with several users, I did run the 
FE-Gun at 20, 21, 25 and 30 keV voltages for a number of hours of 
operation.  I am chagrined to see that this problem returned for other 
users!  We continue to evaluate this problem...
