Velleman 1A Power Supply Solder Kit
• Output between 1.5 and 35 voltage at up to 1A
• Easy and fun to assemble with 14 parts
• Requires a power supply with a maximum voltage of 28V (AC) and 40V (DC)
What can do with this kit?
Run almost anything off this DC power supply (manufacturer’s code K1823) with a 1.5-35V 1A output power. Control motors, circuit boards, models or really anything that needs a DC power input. Use an input power source of between 28V AC and 40V DC to run your devices. You can fit this kit onto almost any project with a 52mm x 30mm board, and it is easy to connect to as it has screw terminal connections for your output and input. With 14 parts, this kit is easy for anyone to assemble no matter their skill level.
What can I learn from this signal generator kit?
Practise soldering and learn about electronics and circuits with this signal generator kit. It uses resistors, capacitors, potentiometers and an integrated circuit (IC) chip, and will help you learn how to connect a circuit. The kit uses a LM317 regulator to give remarkable better ripple (80 dB rejection). The IC chip has a built in current limiter and thermal overload protection. A heatsink (not included) is recommended for the heat produced by the IC chip. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder, and may require wire cutters.
How easy is this kit to solder?
This is a great kit those looking to improve their soldering skills or those needing an adjustable DC power supply for a project. Putting the kit together is just the start – you may want to create an enclosure (not included) for the kit to protect the electronics. If you do so, make sure you don’t block the inputs, outputs or potentiometers and allow any heatsink (not included) to work efficiently at removing the heat from the immediate area. This kit requires a power supply with a maximum output of 28V AC or 40V AC (power supply not included).
