Bench Power Supply Schematic
Note: There is an updated version of this schematic here
I’ve been unable to get to the tools lately to finish off the bench power supply case, so thought i would do an update for people looking to do a similar project.
I’ve drawn up the circuit schematic for the bench power supply. I’ve given colour coded labels for the cables coming from the ATX power supply (correct according to wikipedia at time of publication) and shown all the circuits that are needed, including all component values that I’ve so far decided on. The resistors attached to the LEDs will be chosen at later date, hence those have no values in this schematic.
I hope you find it useful
edit: I should add that i have some planned upgrades to this, such as relays to switch the binding post outputs based on the state of the power good line. This should protect any equipment from unstable voltages when the supply is first turned on. Also I would like to put resettable fuses in line with the outputs to prevent over loading any of the components. These are complications that can wait though. For now i just want to get the basics working.
