 23rd February 2013, 07:42 AM #5771 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Nov 2003 Location: Taiwan Hi Salas, From the HV 1.2R schema, how can I increase the input voltage from 45v to 60v? And, what is the requirement for Q5? I only know if I want LV output, I need to pick a low threshold version. How about capacitance and rise/fall time? Thanks.

How about BC550C/560C? Do you think they will work at 60Vin?

Thanks dimkasta. Great calculator, now better.

R5 & R6 break the output voltage referenced across Q3 & Q4 in two. I don't see what is may hinder you for feeding 60Vin beyond the extra heat created across Q1 the larger the Vin to Vout DC difference becomes. The higher the DC across Q1, its parasitic capacitance tames lower. Just know to have Vout/(R5+R6)~3 to 5mA for the LED with resistors that handle the dissipation (Vo/2)*IR5,6 and adequate Q1 sinking with calculated Q1 temp to be still safe. Q5 should sustain the Vout and have capacitance specs similar to what used in the regular schematic. Dropping with RC,RC if the Vi-VoDC is very large is to be also considered.

Sorry, I should have mentioned earlier. I am going to build a 1.2R regulator for my amplifier VAS stage. My Vin is about 60V, but Vout is around 50V@20ma max. There is only 8V~10V in difference. So, I guess the original schema is fine?

Hi all,
Have some one guide me how to use?
