The next generation light sources such as energy recovery linac (ERL) light sources and X-ray FEL oscillator requires high brightness electron gun with megahertz repetition rate. We have developed a DC photoemission electron gun at JAEA for the Japanese ERL light source project. This DC gun employs a segmented insulator with guard rings to protect the insulator from field emission generated from central stem electrode. We have successfully applied 500 kV on the ceramics with a cathode electrode in place and generated beam from the 500 kV DC photoemission gun in October 2012. Details of the beam generation test at 440 kV as well as 500 kV are presented.
