The Schonland 2.5 MV Van der Graaff Accelerator ("Potch"
) was a gift from the University of Potchefstroom in 1990. It was
inaugurated by Professor J.P.L Reinecke on the 22 November 1993.
Have a look at a schematic of the Schonland Microprobe coupled to the 6 MV EN Tandem and 2.5 MV "Potch" Van der Graaff Accelerators.
This accelerator services the Ion-Microprobe with 2.2 MeV protons
