Re: Challenging 2465 PS repair


The 2465 PSU is a switcher, so a variac is strongly counter indicated as this will typically cause the PSU to draw excess current at low voltages (below the nominal range of say 100-120V, or 200-240V over here).

In an attempt to keep in as much smoke as possible when powering up suspect or failed PS, I use an adjustable transformer (Variac) to slowly bring up mains voltage while monitoring for vital signs. Use isolation transformer or battery powered isolated scope when monitoring waveforms.
