This is the Solderless Breadboard +6v Power Supply Kit. It is a fixed, +6v Power Supply designed for fitting on Solderless Breadboards. It uses the 7800 series of Voltage Regulators. It includes a 1amp Bridge Rectifier with a large Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors for initial filtering and a bleeder resistor at the input. The output has a small filter cap and a Red LED with a current limiting Resistor. This Power Supply is rated for +6v @ 1 Amp.
It was designed by us to neatly fit on the common Solderless Breadboards which is a very handy thing to do. It will convert an AC input into a DC output. It will also convert a large DC input into a smaller DC output. This is an extremely versatile PCB.
The input Voltage is via a 2-pin Screw Terminal which will accept AC or DC inputs. The AC input should not exceed 18VAC and the DC input should not exceed 25VDC. Do not connect this directly to the 120VAC line.
The output voltage is via the dual-row headers on the bottom of the PCB. These plug directly onto the Solderless Breadboard Power Rails.
A heat-sink may be required to keep the Voltage Regulator cool, it is NOT supplied with this kit. The PCB is double-sided, plated thru-hole, made of .062" FR-4 epoxy glass. It has green Solder Mask (LPI) on both sides with white Silk Screen on the Top side and it comes with 4 mounting holes. The Voltage Regulator is located near one edge so that it may be heatsinked if needed.
This kit is pre-assembled and fully functional.
