Electronic DIY kit: Power supply for vacuum tubes circuits on rectifier with an EMI filter

Provides power to the vacuum tube circuits with unstabilized anode and heater voltages.

Mains voltage: 220V/240V 50Hz. Attention! Danger to life!
Anode: 250V, 75mA, D.C.             Attention! Danger to life!
Heater: 6,3V, 2A, AC.
The board size: 123 x 80 mm.
Integrated noise filter (EMI).
It is possible to provide positive voltage by the heater chain in order to deal with the 50Hz noise.
The set is supplied as a printed circuit and a kit of parts.
It is possible to purchase the set without the 6C4P rectifier and/or the power transformer.

Instructions for assembling and tuning the device:

Install and solder all the parts on the board according to the circuit diagram and the board layout. Pay special attention to the correctness of transformer windings connections with the board. Be attentive when installing the ceramic capacitors in high-voltage and heater circuits. They have different breakdown voltages.

The R2 and R3 resistors and the R0 jumper are optional and are used to provide positive voltage in the heater circuits to deal with the 50Hz noise. You decide whether to install it or not. It depends on the noise level in the powered device. Also, you can organize an artificial midpoint by installing resistors instead of capacitors C9 and C10.

Circuit of DIY kit rectifier power supply for vacuum tubes circuits A properly assembled power supply does not have to be tuned. If required, you can use the R1 resistor to set the wanted anode voltage on load.

Besides the the standard toroidal power transformer, almost any other power transformer can be used in the unit, without exceeding the voltage limits for the electrolytic filter capacitors.

Attention! When working with the power supply control the lamp voltage in the powered device.
When exceeding 6,8V use a quenching resistor or reconnect the primary winding of the transformer to a 240V network voltage!
