hi  i have a daiwa power supply a psu ps 120 m  the voltage is high and no control with the voltage output on opening there are 2 n3055h voltage regulators bolted to a heat sink each regulator is 15 amp each these apear to have fitted by the last owner allso a 25 amp bridge rectifier i whould like to fix it as it will  make a varible bench power supply any help whould be great thank you for looking paul m0kbd 73s

Hi Paul,

As far as I'm aware the PS120M has the same/similar circuitry as the PS120Mii version, details of which can be found here :-

https://www.rigpix.com/psu/daiwa_ps120mii.htm

(Helpfully there's a schematic too.)

I'm not sure about the 2N3055 output transistors but these may have been used in this earlier model.
(Unless retro-fitted by a previous owner?)


I'm not keen on these type of linear power supplies as a quick look at the circuitry shows that if the output transistors blow short circuit then the whole unregulated voltage appears at the outputs!!! Shocked 
I think that's pretty much what happened from your description.

For me I'm a fan of switch mode power supplies, (owning a Sharman SM-30), as the design of such items means that if anything goes wrong you usually get no voltage at the outputs at all. dawia psu ps 120m  1f44d 

Earlier linear power supplies sometimes included clever circuitry to prevent such things like over-voltage 'crowbar' protection but often this would not be fast enough to protect a radio or whatever connected to it before the fuse blew. None too good.


It might be worth an attempt at a repair or modification Paul but nowadays switch mode power supplies are so cheap and plentiful that it might cost you more cash in the long run.

Up to you mate.


All the best,
Victor

hi the power supply seems to have been modified  the back panel has had a large section cut out to acomadate the 2x   2n3055 voltage regulators and the 25 amp bridge rectifier so some one must have tried to beef it up hope all enjoying the warm weather paul and sarah m0kbd and sarah m6pii 73s

No worries there Paul. It'll either be good for spares or maybe a winter project. dawia psu ps 120m  1f44d

All the very best to you & Sarah.
