12/24/48 V D.C. Tester

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on 12/24/48 V D.C. Tester

The present tester is intended primarily for testing the 24 V electrical circuits found on most pleasure craft. However, if the resistors are given different values, the circuit may, of course, be used for other voltage ranges. For 12 V, the value of the resistors should be 1.2 k?, and… Read more »

Compact High-Performance 12V 20W Stereo Amplifier

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Compact High-Performance 12V 20W Stereo Amplifier

Amplifiers which run from 12V DC generally don’t put out much power and they are usually not hifi as well. But this little stereo amplifier ticks the power and low distortion boxes. With a 14.4V supply, it will deliver 20 watts per channel into 4-ohm loads at clipping while harmonic… Read more »

12V Flourescent Lamp Inverter

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on 12V Flourescent Lamp Inverter

Fluorescent tubes use far less energy than incandescent lamps and fluorescent tubes last a great deal longer as well. Other advantages are diffuse, glare-free lighting and low heat output. For these reasons, fluorescent lighting is the natural choice in commercial and retail buildings, workshops and factories. For battery-powered lighting, fluorescent… Read more »

12V Fan Directly on 220V AC

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on 12V Fan Directly on 220V AC

This circuit idea is certainly not new, but when it comes to making a trade-of between using a small, short-circuit proof transformer or a capacitive voltage divider (directly from 230 V mains voltage) as the power supply for a fan, it can come in very handy. If forced cooling is… Read more »
