Low Cost Transformer Alternative

Postby Ted » Tue Apr 15, 2003 12:16 pm

I found an interesting transformer on the ApexJr site that says its 110VCT at 7.12A for $7.95 without shippping http://www.apexjr.com/Clearance.htm.
There are more detailed specs elsewhere on the site though that say its 55V 7.12A http://www.apexjr.com/fenspec.htm.
I had some communication with the guy who said it was 110V, 7.12A. based on the size, I am guessing its more like 55V, 7.12A.

But, either way, if you can put up with the mess and there are no paralleling problems, you can get a power transformer for $7.95X4=$31.80 or if its really 110V, 7.12A, $7.95X2=$15.90 without shipping. Since this is a surplus dealer, and they are on his clearance rack, maybe there are other options????

Other Parts, Too!

They also have 10,000 uFd 80 V. electrolytic capacitors for $3.95 each. Not an incredible deal, but not bad either. Two banks of 6 would work quite well in the power supply for the class H modulator.

Also, they have various high power torroids.

Steve

Postby ab3al » Tue Apr 22, 2003 4:35 pm

i wouldnt bother i have a friend that runs an amp repair business and that transformer is a recall

it came out of a 100 watt fender bass amp and when cranked up to 11 the voltage droped down to 40 volts each side of center and the current was only at 4 amps
go straight 2 miles and make the second left on the right
