Heads Up - Linear PSUs on eBay

Post by unrecordings » Mon Jul 18, 2016 6:43 am

Hello all,

These popped up over the weekend - International Power IHAA15-0.8
800mA of +15/-15v

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112055574527? ... EBIDX%3AIT

NOS by the looks of it and a pretty trustworthy seller (I've bought from him before and my two PSUs arrived today)

At the time of writing it looks like he has five left...

Enjoy :-)

Oh crap I kinda wanna buy one of these suckers as I don't use an internal power supply and I was thinking about changing that. How do you get these to work with a system?

Guess he's noticed some demand and adjusted accordingly - market forces and all that...

Peachfuzz - don't worry about this listing, they're quite easy to get hold of in the US - but in UK/Europe, not so easy...

In terms of wiring, so far I tend to build these into external cased supplies, which feed a small number of cabinets. Others just hardwire them into the back of a cabinet with the appropriate line protection and distribution board for modules

Thanks! I've grabbed a couple of them too, the seller must wonder what's happening.

these are getting harder to find used, and more expensive...

These are easy as hell to make into a functioning modular power supply. Just make sure you have a load on the outputs when you're adjusting the voltage regulator pot...

Even in the US ?
(for the sake of accuracy of my earlier assurances to Peachfuzz...)
