This project is a solution to power up most devices or projects requiring dual (+/-) adjustable power. The circuit consists of a stepdown transformer, bridge rectifier, DC filter capacitors, LM317 positive and LM337 negative adjustable voltage regulators, 2 x trimmer pot for independent output voltage adjust, and power LEDs.

Parts Explanation

  • Connector CN1 : 230V/115V AC Input
  • Jumper J2 : 230V Selection
  • Jumper J1 & J3 : 115V Selection
  • Transformer T1 : Step Down Transformer 12V-0-12VAC Output, 230V/115V AC Input
  • Bridge Rectifier BR1 : Rectifier Converts DC in to AC Supply
  • Capacitors C3, C5 : DC Filter Capacitors
  • LED D1 : +V PWR LED
  • LED D2 : -V PWR LED
  • Resistor R1, R2 : Current Limiting Resistors For LEDs D1 and D2
  • Regulator U1 : +V Adjustable Regulator
  • Regulator U2 : -V Adjustable Regulator
  • Trimmer Pot PR1 : +V Output Adjust +1.2V to +12V
  • Trimmer Pot PR2 : -V Output Adjust -1.2V to -12V
  • Capacitor C1, C2, C4, C6 : DC Filter Capacitors
  • Connector CN2 : Adjustable DC Output
Note1: This power supply supports 230V AC or 115V AC input, Jumpers are located under PCB for input voltage selection, remove input power cable while changing Jumper selection.
Note 2: This power supply contains hazardous voltage at the input, PCB must be installed in an encloser that prevents accidental contact. Use Plastic screws to mount the PCB
Note 3: Heatsink is a must for regulators U1 and U2 @ full load, the heatsink should be mounted with plastic screws and should not touch the ground plane of the PCB.
Note 4: It is advisable to set the output voltage using PR1 and PR2 before connecting the output to the load.

Input Voltage Selection

  • For 230V AC Input: Close Jumper J2, Jumper J1, and J3 Open
  • For 115V AC Input: Close Jumper J1 and J3, Jumper J2 Open
