What is the max forward voltage I see anti-reversal diodes but no over voltage protection on caps.
Under peak in rush this could be high and on s/c loads it will be high.
Also I would like to see a temp rating of 105C not 85C, also what is the max ripple current?
Having just check his website I...
It is not the gaps it the non conduction a backing EMF come from the transformer when current is switched of fast, it is the noise it put down the mains to other equipment that concerns me. OH you have to sign on to the SECA site.
The above mention DC has a small problem I can well I can see two, but one is more important, the 1.4 approx voltage drop across the bridge will cause noise on the mains at zero to 1.4VAC
This is the one I have used and it works well. And few numbers to look at.
More info can be found here...
Here is a PCB I did with SSR 2 channel power switch and filters plus a DC blocking circuit.
Here is the BOM the PCB is available via https://seca.freeforums.net/thread/245/anybody-wanting-build-m100-kit
I am sorry to say this is the first time I have looked at this page, and found it very interesting.
Like you I had family member keen, well silly keen on electronics. My Granddad and Dad were mad scientists, Granddad taught me about Tubes/Valve and Dad semiconductors (Germanium).
