An experimental study on the fluctuations in the instants of time and amplitudes of the peaks in the voltage, current time derivative, X-rays, and neutron signals during a 150-shot series in a 2 kJ Plasma Focus device is presented. The results show a reasonable correlation between the time of the voltage peak and that of X-ray emission, in agreement with the picture of the formation of an electron beam accelerated by this voltage. However, the time differences between X-rays and neutron maximum emission are difficult to interpret in terms of a common origin.
