PS2 Power Supply


PS2 Laboratory Power Supply, Dual Outputs 0-30V,3A


Very good quality laboratory power supply of my own design.  I worked for more than 7 years repairing and calibrating test equipment. This design is a collection of the best power supply designs that I found. All parts are easy to get. Sorry I never design PCB since these supply is the working prototype that I used in my lab. Feel free to use my design as long as you refer to me as the designer. If you ever design PCB please send me a copy... 


PS2 Specifications
