Hardware Laboratory – Part 2: Power Supply

  Hardware Laboratory – Part 2: Power Supply 

  Many young hobbyists collect and equipping their own Hardware laboratories with all possible kind of technical tools and gadgets. 




  This is not a single time activity and will cost some time. If you have a plan, the time loosed by searching will be minimized and the money will be precisely fitted into each budget.

  Let continue collecting our-yours virtual Hardware laboratory – to become a reality.

  2.  The Vacuum-Pump, Desoldering Wick, 2.5mm for resoldering activity. 
  3.  Some options for carrying clean the soldering tip.


4.  Adjustable Power Supply Source.

You have two main options:

I: To buy an expensive Programmable Power Supply, 

II: To get the cheap, fully-functional, Adjustable Power Supply Board – DP50V5A. 

    First Option is o.k. without any problems – You buy the device and what – that is. 

  But, the second option will unlock your imagination. You need to search the suitable enclosure and DC-Fixed power source – 50 Volt/with few amps and will create your own styling power supply – by your hands.

   Almost everybody can Buy completed Product or hardware device, but the pleasure and feeling to create by your two hands some hardware “creature”, is unique.

  Now is time to collect a measuring equipment.

  Let start with the well known ” Multimeter “. It must be capable of measuring:  Resistance, Voltage, Current, Capacitance, etc.

  More expensive “multimeters” can measure a Duty-cycle [%1-100], Frequency, Inductance, and luminance.    

  The internet gives a million suggestions for buying the right multimeter. Not to be wasteful in time, you can see our right – ten multimeters list.
