Symmetric Power Supply

September 12th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Today,  I have finished my project, regarding a symmetric power supply for my other projects.

Basically, it consists of a transformer in the right side of the picture. The transformer delivers 2×15 Volts with 1 Amp each. On the secondary sides are two symmetric power supply’s from Velleman (K8042) and one self built power supply including a Voltmeter based on an Atmega8. One Velleman ps is fixed to +/-15V, whereas the second ps is variable and controlled by the potentiometer on the front panel. Furthermore, in the middle of the picture are different power (fixed) supply’s with +/-5V and +3.3V and +2.5V. Again, the Atmega8 is used as a Voltmeter to measure the  output from the variable symmetric power supply. This is done via a resistor voltage divider.

The second picture shows the front view of the power supply. Here, a comparison between the internal Voltmeter and an external one is made. As one can see, there is a slight difference between both, but for me, it still is enough, not to always use the external Voltmeter.

Still the labels for the individual outputs are missing.
