Quick stupid question

Post by Uncopyrightable » Wed Jul 08, 2009 2:42 pm

Ok, just a quickie before I head to work

So I'm thinkin of getting the VOS Modulator
http://www.curiousinventor.com/kits/voi ... _modulator

I'm guessing I'll need their power supply thing if I plan NOT to run it on batts.

I'm unsure as to where to find the proper power supply to run that.

Something like a 12-15v AC thing?

I read the pages last night, was a bit sleepy, but don't recal anything specific about requirements.


Thanks. :deadbanana:

It looks like you need +9 and -9 VDC - so you need a Bi-polar supply.

If you want to build it this one will work...

Well, yeah, that's ANOTHER power supply board and doesn't tell me where to get the wall plug thing that spits out 12v - 15v AC. Radio-Hack has like 5v - 15v DC adapters.

I guess there's redundancy in the question. I know the PSU board I have to use, but not the power supply wall wart (wort?) thing that goes to it.

Are you UK or US? (Can't remember, sorry...!)

At RatShack: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index ... Id=2049687

Or easy enough in UK

I prob have a stack of Uk/Eu/US 12VAC adaptors suitable if you really get stuck (that's separate types for Uk & Euro & Us obviously!)

Ooops - sorry. I didn't read your post very well. :doh:

It seems like wall warts are thrown away ALL the time - I've got a drawer full of them just from picking them up at garage sales for a few cents...
Just keep your eyes open.

Eyes open is the key. These AC > AC adapters are like Where's Waldo... Yes, they ARE there... just gotta freakin look harder.
:| Look for it
:confused: Loooook For It
:sad: I've been f'n lookin for it
:evil: Where the fuck is it
:oops: Oh, under my nose...
:eek: EYES OPEN WHEN SEARCHING PLZ

So yeah, I went and bought one. Was at Radio Hack, in the area I had looked before, but the bottomest mostest to the far right...

:deadbanana:

Many many thanks for the help
