Triple Power Supply

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Triple Power Supply

Inexpensive miniature transformers normally provide one or two secondary voltages, which is sufficient for generating a set of positive and negative supply voltages, such as are needed for operational amplifier circuits. But what can you do if you need an additional voltage that is higher than either of the supply… Read more »

Circuit Project: Solar Panel Voltage Regulator

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Circuit Project: Solar Panel Voltage Regulator

Our energy-hungry and environmentally aware society has been slow to make good use of the sun’s “free” power. But now it’s finally taking off. Using the sun’s heat directly, for cooking and other applications, is already a common and popular technology in countries that have good weather. Hot-water panels are… Read more »

Adjustable Symmetrical Power Supply Using LM317 and LM337

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Adjustable Symmetrical Power Supply Using LM317 and LM337

The circuit was designed to provide an adjustment with a power supply that is symmetrically designed while providing a voltage range of 1.25V to 30V at 1A current. LM317 – an adjustable 3-terminal positive voltage regulator capable of supplying in excess of 1.5A over an output voltage range of 1.2V… Read more »

8V DC Power Supply With Over-Voltage Protection

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on 8V DC Power Supply With Over-Voltage Protection

This 8V DC power supply was designed for use with an expensive piece of electronic equipment. It features full over-voltage protection as a precaution against regulator failure, either in the supply itself or inside the equipment it is powering. The circuit uses a conventional full-wave rectifier, followed by a 3-terminal… Read more »

7.2V Battery Replacement Power Supply For Camcorders

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on 7.2V Battery Replacement Power Supply For Camcorders

This circuit lets an external 12V SLA battery power a camcorder which normally has an inbuilt 7.2V battery. Such batteries can now be very difficult or expensive to obtain for earlier model camcorders. In essence, the circuit is a standard LM317 adjustable regulator with resistors R1 & R2 set to… Read more »

Reset from Multiple Power Supplies

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Reset from Multiple Power Supplies

Processor based systems usually require a voltage supervisor chip to produce a clean reset pulse to the processor whenever a ‘brown-out’ condition of the power supply is detected. More complex designs employing multiple power supplies can be unreliable if some of the supplies are not supervised. The circuit described here… Read more »
