Exclamation Real Quick Question!!


Can I use two rectifiers in of the same secondary of a transformer.

IE. like shown in attachment?

Need to flow about 250mA and my chokes can't handle it so I thought if I separated into (2) channels it will be OK. I have seen paralleled rectifier tubes but common B+ out.

Is there any reason I can't do this? I might be missing something.

If you look one more time at your schematic you'll realise that you have drawn common B+. However I do not see that it should be a problem. You can still feed one choke per channel to bring down the current requirement on the chokes.

I'm not allowed to do magic, union rules...
