TentLabs Tube Heater Supply (2.5V to 13V / Max 1.5A)

TentLabs Tube Heater Supply

Price: $49.00

Purpose

TentLabs heater supply is designed to supply the heaters of indirectly heated tubes. Its’ main use is feeding phono and linestage tubes, to keep the hum levels down. The module can also be applied to feed other circuits, like the CDpro CD driver.

Application

More tubes can be connected in parallel, assumed their respective heaters are at equal potential. If heater potentials are different, separate modules (and transformer windings for each module) are required. The heater reference needs to be connected close to the tube The total output current is limited to 1.5Adc, mainly due to heat dissipation. The units are factory adjusted at your order. After installation, the supply needs no adjustment.
