Chime high voltages
« on: 19 Jul 2011, 03:54 am »
I finished assembling my chime and started checking the voltages.

With no tubes I get 7.97 for the Hagdac, which is good.

With only the rectifier (Sovtek 5Y3GT) installed H+ is 8.57 and B+ is 380. I did try a Sovtek 5AR4 from my Cornet just in case the tube was faulty, but same voltages.

I checked the voltage across R103 and I get 6.56 VAC.

The voltage at R438 is 368v, not the 305v shown on the board.

Any ideas why the voltages are so high?

So putting in the rest of the tubes brings the voltages in line :duh:

I now get 5.78v at H+ and 298v at R438.
