OK, that helps.

1. Is it the 5V input model, or one of the others?

2. Is it being operated close to full load, or nearer to no-load? That affects the maximum input voltage we need to provide.

3. What will be the power supply for the system? (I'm interested in whether we have a couple more volts available than the input to the emco device needs.)

4. To what resolution do you need to set the output voltage?

When you mean 5V input, do you mean voltage supplied from the arduino?

I have a 10kV generator and a normal 10V generator too.

Havent gotten as far as to decide resolution, a competent resolution should be fine to start off i assume.

I am trying to control the voltage being applied to the lens.
I have a HV multiplier (emco) and im trying to see if i can use a digital potentiometer or some other equipment that arduino would be able to use to control the output voltage to the lens.

Would it be easier to post a block diagram?

Yes, it's possible to use an inverter to generate the high voltage, and control the inverter with the Arduino. What range of voltage is required, and at what current?

HV mutiplier goes up to 5kV.

project is to be able to change the voltage supply to a electro-optic lens to focus on images.

would a potentiometer work?

I am quite unsure how i can use the arduino to control a high-voltage supply controlling an electro-optic lens. The lens has to have a change in voltage to correct the focus and i want to know if theres a way to get arduino to apply changes in steps with a loop setup?
