    Mental!

    Forget group buys. ....we may as well all fly solo with that kind of offer - stupid price!!!

    I paid 19 del for 2, so 22.49 a PSU... cant be bad...

    It may take me a couple of days to work out the answer to the volts. Its a TI UCC2985 phase-shifting PWM controller driving 4 x F740 500V 20A HexFETs in a full-bridge, running at 340vDC supply, driving the output transformer, the output being rectified by two BYT16P dual fast 20A rectifiers. Feedback from output to PWM is via a pair of opto-isolators. As such it is not far different to the reference circuit for the 2985 PWM but so far not been able to identify the actual voltage regulation mechanism.

    There are a pair of FA3624 PWM controllers on a daughter board each driving an FP460L hexfet as a single ended flyback converter to provide logic voltages of 5v and 12v (I'm guessing based on the other chips around there, but it would seem logical).

    There is another daughter board with SMT parts on that is made in UK (rest is made in Germany) which suggests this was bought in. Havent been able to fathom its purpose yet.

    Crikey! I'll just be happy if I manage not to set fire to it when I plug it in!!
    Thanks for the investigations Irving - i've got a couple more weeks of fiddling with leadscrew and alignment then I think I'll suck it and see what happens at 42V. (unless your reverse engineering gets finished before my machine)(possible)

    PS. cheers for the ebay spades link Hank - i'm nowhere near Maplin :(

    and your point Lee? Thats the tech spec I included in my first post in this thread... thats where i got it... it doesnt say much tho...

    Found that in there :)
    Yes, this is designed for the telecoms market... as I said, a quality supply....

    note also elsewhere in doc... "Designed for free convection" No fans needed!

    I emailed the manafacturer (Minebea) to see if they had a schematic, here's their reply...

    thank you for your request.

    Sorry to tell you that NMB Minebea gave up that business years ago. No more drawings, spare parts or schematics available anymore,

    Regards

    Yeah, good try, but I thought that was wishful thinking. These were built around 10y ago I think.

    So Kip's only got 5 years warranty left.

    John S -

  10. Well I managed to get the power supply wired up and it does what it says on the tin... no noise, no fuss, just 500w of power....

    The variable output is, well, variable... and it doesn't get switched off...it sits at 42v when the 'inhibit' line below 5v or above 11v, although the SysOut line does switch off when out of regulation.

    Also needs no load resistor.... works happily with no significant load.

    Will continue to investigate....
