Default CL-60 Inrush Current Limiter

Hi all,

The CL-60 appears in the original NP-Alephs.
Is this generally applicable for the 230 VAC mains, too? Or, european users should get for their lower currents another one?
My second question were, could I find anybody from Germany with a surplus of 2 pieces and reasonable offer?

Thanks in anticipation,
Laci

The CL-60 thermistors are negative temperature coefficient devices with a cold resistance of approximately 10 ohms. Any such device with the requisite ampacity rating for the task at hand will substitute.

It works fine on 230, although these days some of our
products have an individual thermistor on each of the
two primary windings, so they are in parallel at 120V and
series at 240V, which gives identical characteristics.

Thanks for the explanations!

Now I should find a pair; shipping from Digikey to Hungary would be a stupid decision, I think. Inside Germany were not too expensive - please, deutsche Kollege, help me with your surplus!

Regards,
Laci

I can ship to you 2 pcs of CL-70 (15 ohm cold resistance, which actually works better with 220V) free of charge. Just send me your address

Default CURRENT INRUSH

Hi, just a quick question (please be tollerant I am not as technical as alot on this forum)

Am I right in understanding that these thermistors .... limit the intial current surge that a large Torroiadial can impose (1000va)
on intial switch on.

On the Aleph-x is there any chance of speaker thump on switch on? Will this reduce the effect????

Finally, on high quality psu I built for Ben Duncans Amp-o2
the power primarys were double clamped with VDR's.....is this good practice on a large class 'a' amp????

Sorry for all the qustions.......

Regards
Richard, Bolton (nr Manchester) uk

The Aleph X's (or at least mine..) are not noted for thumps, and
don't have any circuits incorporated to prevent them or
disconnect the speaker.
