Broadcast Tools SS8.2 Power Supply

Post by kkiddkkidd » Mon Sep 18, 2017 7:30 am

Hi all,

Has anyone found a reasonably priced replacement for the old original SS8.2 (and other) switcher AC power supply?

They need 34.5vac/500ma center tapped and 10.5vac/1a. Notice that the PS output is AC.

I have a number of working switchers laying that I would like to use on a low budget project but the PS is about $70 from BT.

OR does anyone have a full schematic for a SS8.2 to see if they would work on DC voltages direct from the PS.

I have one switching a webstream running on two AC:AC transformers in a plastic Bud box. I used a 36 V CT not 34.5 and a 9.5V instead of 10.5 but nothing seems to care. Probably $20 in parts. Those OEM power supplies don't last anywhere near as long as the switchers do...they run pretty hot.
