I bought a 12volt 8.5amp TDK Lambda power supply from Radio Spares to replace a Mean Well 12v 8.5a supply which had failed after 3 years. https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/embedded-switch-mode-power-supplies-smps/8139099/?sra=pstk I connected it up to a 3 pin plug with a 13A fuse. When I plugged it in to an extension socket, which had a 13amp fuse, to check the output voltage, it tripped ...

The power wires for a 500 watt ebike motor go through the board. It there any off the shelf insulator designed to protect the caps and other components only 13 mm away? This is asking for a torch. Bret Cahill


E field impedance

As the story goes, the E field starts with high impedance and it goes down until it's equal to the H field impedance in the far field. It's...

As the story goes, the E field starts with high impedance and it goes down until it's equal to the H field impedance in the far field. It's just so counter-intuitive that impedance would go down as you get farther from the source. Is there a somewhat intuitive way to look at that? On another matter, I've asked before about the disagreement between some books with diagrams of E and M i...

I would like to add a sub-woofer to my home theater system. My system calls for speakers in the 6 -> 16 ohm range. When I searched Ebay, I found some speakers, but found out that they need a crossover. My system has an output for a subwoofer. Could someone show me a link to something for sale or else the specs I need to look for? Thanks, Andy
