its a potential divider, use ohms law

Vheaterbias = (Rbottom * Vin) /(Rtop + Rbottom)

50 to 70v should be fine.

Thank you guys for kind advice, I will follows Salas advice because don't need to modificate the PSU voltage, I take note for future problems about voltage divider thank you Adam

Cheers

No problem. Personally i would drop the 15k resistor a bit, 15v maybe marginal so why risk it.

 3rd November 2010, 11:27 PM #1244 Hearinspace   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jun 2008 I built up the first version with BC560C and MPSA92 last week and on the bench with dummy load it took a long time to settle. Twenty minutes after power up and setting it was still dropping 0.1VDC every 15 - 20 seconds. Has anybody else seen this? I don't want to put it in circuit until it is stable on the bench. I'm wondering if I need to learn about temperature compensation or some other wonderful new thing. Thanks
 3rd November 2010, 11:40 PM #1245 Salas   diyAudio Chief Moderator     Join Date: Oct 2002 Location: Athens-Greece The BJT reference one with MPSA92 drifts more due to 3 tempcos and TO-92 error amp heating up. I remember it taking 10-15mins to settle. Up R4 to 4K7 so it runs less mW on MPSA92 for starters. Best for drift would be the later Jfet ref one with TO-126 driver. An easy to get J201 can work fine too if having no K170, with the trimmer half way at 500R for Rs will give you circa 0.35mA under Vbe potential. You can extrapolate the voltage reference resistor at its drain needed for your targeted voltage output.

 4th November 2010, 01:16 PM #1249 Salas   diyAudio Chief Moderator     Join Date: Oct 2002 Location: Athens-Greece Fine components IMO. I would choose the 1000V PIV one for use in even higher voltage bridges given the opportunity.
