OTL update - tube power supplies Done!

Posted 4th November 2012 at 03:14 PM by wlowes

Over the past few weeks I continued to build out and test the power supplies. I really am pleased with the decision to make each supply as a module that can be fully developed and tested outside the box.

After the success with the first supply for small tubes, I moved on to the power tubes. After abandoning the large Sangamo can caps, I ordered in 8 2200uf snap in caps.. 2 per rail, 4 per monoblock. After they arrived I realized that these things are pretty big. The question was how to securely mount them. I settled on another wood block so they can be mounted securely under the chokes. As before, I mounted them through the wood using some silicon cement. There are some nice mills wire wound bleeder resistors. The B+ power supply design calls for a single center tapped 230v transformer. I had scored 2 pairs of 120v 500va Toroidal transformers. I must admit it took a lot of research and a couple of helpful posts before I was sure that I really had this figured...
