|Power Controle Box|
|This controle box is just something I put together to have alittle more controle of what Im doing.
Im lazy and curious so I want to know how much amps I take out of my power supply.
This box is made so I have both 5V and 12V out of it. If I connect something to the connectors that have screws on them (to the right) I can select if I want 5V or 12V out of them. I also get out the reading on the displays. Have a switch for the two amps meter, start on 5A and can switch to the 1A meter if the current is low. If I find a amp meter that goes even lower Im going to put it in to. It's hard to see if it's 20mA or 30mA on this once.
The two other outputs I have, the connectors that dont have screws on them is strate 5V and 12V out without any indications.
|Im trying to build up my own little lab at home, but it's damn expencive to have all kinds of components at home. So Im taking it step by step. Now I have a table that I dont need to clean if Im done or not, like befor when I used the kitchen table...|
to get a bigger version on the blueprint.
Im no master in drawing this things so hope you understand.
Got most of the parts to this from Clas Ohlson
|This must have been the hardest part. To get nice cutouts for everything. Whant it to look nice to.|
|Used a mill tool to take out the larger parts, and a file to make them be perfect.|
|Hocking up things was not that hard, but trying to get the damn screw nut's on place was hard in the tight spots.|
|Ground sopot got crowded.|
|I like the result.|
|This is my standard ATX power supply that Im going to use for my laborations.
Have done some modifications to it.
