 20th October 2011, 04:31 PM #611 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Sep 2008 So What current is your transformer providing for each secondary? What value have you for R101? Four LEDs green, correct? What is the voltage drop across each green LED? What value for C105? Chris Last edited by Backbones; 20th October 2011 at 04:33 PM.

 20th October 2011, 05:01 PM #613 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Sep 2008 Transformer current sufficient. 4 times 1.9V = 7.6V Say current draw of 700mA = Vgs of about 5.5V. 7.6-5.5=2.1V I=V/R. I=2.1/3.3. I=640mA. Not enough current for 700mA. R101 needs to be 3ohm or lower (2.1/0.7). I don't know up to what current the BiB is designed to go. chris

Hmm, Salas just to confirm, 1.9V = RED LEDs, yes? Because i saw other people who used the regs in the same application and they used the green LEDs in Dx02,x03,x04 instead. Is it because their current used is different?

and now turn the mains supply voltage down to suppliers specified minimum. Measure again.

The fact that you have already lost 50mV tells me you are getting close to dropping out.

Measured voltage accross R1 2.37 V : 3R3 = 718mA

BTW enough for B3...

Different voltage.

OK. After calculation errors it is about the right current levels. The drop across the LEDs depends on their current I believe to some degree.
If you are supplying the right current at the reg level one has to ask if the load is drawing more than this?

Extracted from leonvb BIII manual in the TP site:

"The standard board requires an input voltage of 5.25V and it draws approximately 440mA when one is using the recommended set of Trident shunt regulators"

From an earlier post.
