    The high current pulsed power GIT16 driver, consisting of 8 modules, was put into operation in 1992. The machine was used for POS investigations at currents up to 4 MA and conduction times up to 1.5 μs, and to drive the Z-pinch radiative loads. In 1995, the investigations were performed again in order to optimize the convolute between the POS and the Z-pinch load. In 1996, the next four modules were put into operation. For 12 modules in total, current in the circuit reached 6.7 MA in 1.7 μs. In this paper, the POS experiments with extended switch length are conducted on GIT12 in order to investigate the influence of the switchy length and plasma distribution on the POS performance.
