Switched resistors and potentiometer as Vectrix Inrush Current Limiter?
Submitted by Mik on Thu, 04/09/2009 - 22:43
I have built an Inrush Current Limiter according to this design plan:
This "Switched Resistor Ladder" is useful for testing different scenarios, but is not recommended as a standard ICL. It has a high potential for operator error and is more complex than necessary.
Most of the technical discussion occurred on Endless Sphere .
The main purpose of building the device was to test other ICL ideas on the Vectux, like the Light Globe ICL option.
Although the Resistor ladder has a high operator error risk, it reduces the operator error risk during experimenting with ICL's because connections can be made and changed without much risk of shorting something!
TylerDurden, Fechter, DaveS, Link and Garygid for helping!
