One way of simulating UPS packs I thought of at one point, though this is both dangerous and possibly expensive if you don't have one, is to use a variac with a bridge rectifier. Of course, you...

Re: Line filter question

I did some tests today: I took a power transformer that outputs 24VAC, enough to power my soldering iron through a bridge rectifier and DC-DC converter to limit it to 24v and measured ACV between the...

Re: Line filter question

Can't remember right now how TV power supplies without the third PE conductor are arranged (double insulated). I've worked on quite a few of them over the years, but can't recall the arrangement of...

Re: Line filter question

Yeah, I'm not gonna mess around (too much) with the electrical wiring in my home/shop. I was mostly interested in how to design a proper power supply that's safe to install on lab equipment which...

Re: Line filter question

Well, I haven't done anything yet, hence this discussion :D


Yes, my apartment is in a pretty old building, but there are no pipes close to my workbench anyway, so it's not an option.

Re: Line filter question

There aren't any pipes that are easy to run wires to anyway, hence why I suggested I should just use the TN-C method in each outlet. The only danger I see with this is if someone, for some reason...

Re: Line filter question

I'm mostly interested in protecting the stuff I work on if it gets connected to this power supply or if it powers a soldering iron. I haven't had any mishaps with the first supply I built using a DPS...

Re: Line filter question

I can't do that in this case, since the caps are inside the metal shell and I DO want a connection to earth just in case there IS one there. I think I can use an IEC connector and just omit those...

Re: Line filter question

I know what it does, I was just curious how such a setup would behave when the earth pin (PE) is floating. It's not just my apartment - I could carry this supply someplace else and I may face the...

Exclamation Line filter question

Good day folks. A while back, I started building a bench power supply (long story - see it here (https://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=76581&highlight=dual&page=7) :D). I noticed something...

Re: Using car key fob as generic remote control

There isn't anything else on the PCB, as you can see in the pic I showed (the other side only has the battery), hence why I think the PCF chip in the fob handles the immobilizer too...

Talking Re: Using car key fob as generic remote control

Ok, good to know - that's why I said "inferred" :D. What threw me off is the antenna coil in the datasheet for the PCF chip, connected to the "IN" pins on the left - apparently those receive...

Red face Re: Using car key fob as generic remote control

After doing some more reading, I learned (or rather inferred) some more about this particular PCF (https://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/1132654/PHILIPS/PCF7946AT.html) chip, despite the...

Smile Using car key fob as generic remote control

Good day folks. It's been a while since I've DIY-d anything, so the other day I was thinking if it's possible to use the key fob of my car as a remote for other automation stuff. I have quite a few...

Re: Asus X555L backlight shuts off when on battery

I think the coil in question is on the display panel, not inside the laptop. I haven't done this myself to confirm, but most seem to report it's on the panel and had great success replacing it...

Re: Panasonic PBX shuts off at random

Not much I could do with it myself, plus I don't imagine it's doing any major work when in operation anyway, so I just let it run on my desk however it pleased. It doesn't matter in this case,...

Talking Re: Panasonic PBX shuts off at random

I already replaced those, which leads me to this:


Yes, it is - up to Q15, so point 19 gives me the correct voltage all the time. Point 20 doesn't.


Yes, that's what I'm expecting, but point...
