Default Bybee Music Rails Problem

Hi I just mounted Music Rails for the power supply for the input section off my Holton NXV R 2 . There was 2 V drop over the negativ Bybbe using a Vario Transformer and the voltage newer was near the 30 V . I have mounted them with all components nessesary for 90 V. Suddenly the voltage after the negative Bybbe dropped a lot before and after the Bybbe. All is mounted correct . What can the preoblem be ? There is no short circuits.

Has the room temperature changed? It has been said that the Bybee devices uses 'near room-temperature superconductors' (not sure whether the 'near' applies to the temperature or the conductivity) so a change in temperature could disturb them (if the reports are true).

Or it could be that something is broken in your power supply.

It is broken. The drop should be very low in voltage.
The MUSIC RAIL was designed by my colleague, who is a full time design engineer. It is based on IC's and is more like a super cap multiplier, than anything else. No magic, just patents.

Thank you Mr. Curl !

A 24 V diode was broken measured 230 ohm but why ? Could have been faulty from the start but never seen that before.

I will replace it tomorrow an restart.

The warmest superconductors operate at about -140 degrees C. One wonders where Bybee lives.

So you think 45 db noise reduction is snakeoil ?

Speaking foolishly about a product that is entirely of typical solid state parts is misleading.
