I'm sorry Aandy, but I completely disagree with you on all counts. I am rather stunned by your answer really.old hat and unreliable and out of date
Too many to count. Also power supplies and other assorted items. Why?how many amplifiers have you built?
This is stunningly obvious. Why did you even pose the question? I agree completely with richie00boy on this issue and can't see anything else to add to his comments.glad to here some one at last knows where the inrush comes from!
The resistor in series exists specifically to control and reduce this inrush current. For the most part, the relay contacts (or triac) only needs to carry the normal operating current. The reason you shorted your triacs out to begin with was your failure to include the anti-surge circuit.in addition to the hi inrush 3-500amps on >1kw
True.the main problem with them is the much higher inrush than EI's
