Use DC Blocker to Remove DC Component of SignalIn the model, run the simulation. The spectrum of the input signal shows tones at 150 Hz and 250 Hz and a significant (0 dBW) DC component.Select the DC Blocker block by double-clicking on it and change the algorithm type from IIR to Subtract mean. Rerun the simulation. The spectral output from the DC Blocker shows that the Subtract mean estimation method results in a DC component of less than −100 dBW.
DC Blocker with Fixed Point DataConstellation diagrams and spectrum analyzers are used to show the improvements from the DC Blocker.[BIG IMG] https://es.mathworks.com/help/examples/dsp/win64/xxdcBlockerCIC_model_diagram.pngLook at the spectrum of the noisy signal with the DC offset. Notice that the signal has a peak at 0 Hz.Observe the spectrum of the noisy signal after the DC Blocker removes the offset. The spectral peak at 0 Hz has been removed.
Interesting features: Room for up to 6 x 68000 uF snap-in high performance caps. Four DC blocking voltages. Very thick copper traces, virtually impossible to burn off. Gold plated pads.
Operating voltage: 0-240 VAC, 50-60 HzMax DC voltage: 1, 2, 3 or 4 VMax inrush current: Approx 120-200 A peak depending of chosen diode typeMax continuous current: See datasheet for used capacitorsDimensions: 81.3 (3.2") x 192.4 (7,58") mm
The DC trap makes sure that no DC slips through. The primary winding is AC coupled with help from six big electrolytic capacitors. The inrush current will go through the diodes when the capacitors have been charged over 1 or 4 volts and the normal current will only go through the capacitors.
Circuit descriptionThis design is very simple, just a couple of diodes and capacitors. The purpose of the diodes is to limit the DC voltage across the caps, especially at high load and at power on. The pcb contains of 16 diodes where there are two in parallel for each direction. This is for increasing the current capacity to the double. Normally you should not connect diodes in parallel in they not are on the same die but in this case I think it will work fine since they will have the same temperature and will most likely not continuously carry any larger currents. I recommend that you solder all 16 diodes. The only disadvantage is a slightly higher cost. Don't try to desolder. You will only damage the pcb.
PCB for the schematic is with dimensions 163×70 mm.PCB thickness: FR4 1.55 mm. Copper thickness: 35um (1oz). Surface finish – Nickel Gold (ENIG).It is one-layer design with solder mask coating on bottom layer for best durability. Silk screen with parts layout is placed on the top of the PCB.
What Power conditioners do you have?
Lastest revision.4 Felix, 19 amps, in an old Adcom 535 chassis.
They are only DC blockers. Good idea the star ground.I think was better idea ONE DC blocker or maybe two and four outputs. Only RF/EMI filters, ferrites and isolated or balanced transformers clean in both sides, so it makes sense to use several. But not with DC Blockers.
The group buy at DIYaudio isn’t going very well so far with the large DC Blocker with 6 caps and 16 diodes. Not enough interest so far.
