Acurite Digital Readout Power Supply

Hope someone can help.

I could not find a listed device even close.

The primary windings of the transformer have gone (open circuit). I am trying to find the secondary voltage so I can purchase a new transformer. There are no markings on the transformer. One of the first components after the rectifier on the pcb is an LM340T5780P+ voltage regulator (wired as fixed output). Is it possible to work out it’s supply voltage and hence input voltage from other components from the pcb?

Spec sheet says Vout - 5,12,15. Vin - 10,19,23. Are these just test voltages for the specs or are they the only 3 operating voltages?

It is connected to 2 capacitors with markings - K5R 334K & 105 +25K.

The transformer connects to the two pins.

There is no model number - Acurite Millmate.

The only numbers on the board are; 387575-6033 (printed) and 7-19 570702 1-29-90 (hand written) and ACU-RITE 387575-6034 ASSM. REV A (printed).

There does not appear to be a thermal fuse within the transformer. It has 4 primary windings and a single secondary winding.

The transformer is connected to the two pins shown in photos 1 and 3.

Is it possible to workout the supply voltage from the voltage regulator and the components around it - capacitors and resistors?

Do you mean the tiny capacitors near the regulator that I gave the numbers for, or the electrolytic capacitors?

The main transformer is connected directly to a RMS401L rectifier (Max 35V). The rectifier is connected directly to some electrolytic capacitors, the LM340T5 voltage regulator, an IC - TL494 and the small capacitors associated with the LM340T5 as listed above. The electrolytic capacitors are rated at 16V, the IC is rated at 7-40Vand the regulator is rated at 5V out and 5 to 18V in.

If I had to take a guess, it would be 12V supply to the board. Would that be correct? Could I damage anything with 12V - Would 10V be better?

Can anyone help

Kind Regards

Jeremy

Hi @jwa2,

What is the model number of the Acurite Digital Readout and also any make/model number of the power supply board?

Hi @jwa2 ,

I assume that the faulty transformer is connected to the J4 connector on the board in image 3, is this correct?

Long shot maybe but try gently removing the insulation covering the windings on the transformer as some transformers have a cutout thermal fuse inserted in the transformer. Not sure if it is on the primary or the secondary or even if it is buried within the windings and not on the top under the insulation, but maybe worth a look.

If there is one there and it is blown you could try replacing it (hopefully its rating is stamped on it) and then check if the primary winding is OK and if so connect power to it and measure the output voltage on the secondary. You may have to be quick in case the fuse blows again due to an internal fault in the transformer

Knowing the output voltage is one thing as you still need to know the secondary output current required as well so that you can get the correct replacement or a suitable alternate supply.

The input voltage and current for the device is shown in the specs in the user manual (see Sect 5-1)

Update (03/08/2022)

Hi @jwa2 ,

Did you check all the primary windings, you never said?

Here’s an image to show how you might be able to still use it perhaps.

(click on image to enlarge)

If it tests open circuit between terminals A - E as shown in the image try between B - E, C - E and D - E and check if there is a reading at all.

If there is no continuity between D - E then unfortunately the main part of the primary winding is open circuit so it can’t be used but if it is only open between A - B or A - C or A - D, you can use the other windings as the primary input e.g. B - E, C - E or D - E

The specs in the user manual list 4 AC input values so presumably they connect 240VAC across A - E, 220VAC across B - E, 120VAC across C - E & 100VAC across D - E so depending where the problem is in the primary winding you may be able to supply the appropriate AC input voltage across the working section of the primary.

If the transformer can’t be used, I would try connecting 10V AC first and check if the device functions normally and is still accurate,

Hi @jwa2 ,

Just confirming that all 4 primary windings are open circuit?

What is the VW rating (working voltage) printed on the capacitors closest to the J4 input connector?

The voltage rating will tell you what the maximum DC voltage is that the capacitors can withstand without failing.

So if you know the AC input voltage to the transformer and the max DC voltage on the board it 's a start to working out what the AC output of the transformer will be. Unfortunately you also have to know what value current is required as well ;-(

@jwa2 the voltages are very specific and would not be test voltages but actual operating voltages. We really would need to see more of the device etc. where this transformer is part off. Post some pictures of the whole setup with your question. I suppose you could try and get the voltages needed by designing your own voltage regulator circuitry or really try to hunt for a matching transformer (or at least something that comes close). It all depends on the requirements for the PSU and this transformer. By using the LM340t5 you know that the working amperage would be relatively low as well (~1A)在已经存在的问题里加入图片
