Default 2.5kV power supply

This is available on a local site, and I'm sure postage would be possible to the UK. I've never seen one before - a 2.5kV power supply. Is that cat nip to a TV restorer?

We used to use similar things at work for powering vacuum photodiodes. Our supplies weren't capable of delivering much current, but the dark current in the diodes was generally very small.

Is that 2.5 or 25 kV?

It looks European to me with a comma separator - doesn't that say "A2,5k" bottom right?

Hi Folks, should be OK for the VCR97 type of set but too low for a TV22.
On the up side I suspect it has low current so will not kill you (but nasty bite) the way a mains derived type would
