The Aux. and Main line level inputs are de-balanced and pass via level controllers and an analogue switch into a summing amplifier where they are mixed. If the contact input is asserted (470 ohms to ground) a logic circuit disconnects the aux. input.
The protect circuit disconnects the output transformer when the voltage rails fall below 22 volts, exceed 36 volts, or when a d.c. offset is present on the output rails. The signal then passes through to the output stage, which is a feed-forward current-mode bridge circuit and the output level meter monitors the level at this stage.
The output current is passed through the primary of the output transformer and through a low value output-sensing resistor. The output of the transformer is tapped at 50 and 100 volts. If the 50 volt taps are
connected in series the unit provides a single 400 watt output at 100 V line.
A large capacitor reservoir provides a very smooth output, even under large current surges. Two separate 10 amp fused outputs connect to the two amplifier modules.
A separate feed passes, via the Aux. on LED (this shows that the Aux. power is available on the rear connector) through a 3 amp fuse to the Aux. power connector. With mains voltage operation this unregulated output is at approximately 32 Vd.c. When mains has failed, this output is connected to the battery and
therefore operates at battery voltage level.
A 27.2 volt regulator is also taken off this line and used to charge external batteries via a 20 amp fuse. All fuses are accessible by removing a plate on the rear panel.
PSU and amplifier faults are returned into the monitoring circuit from both amplifiers, slugged to prevent false faults being reported externally, and passed to the (normally high) fault outputs on the CAT5 SIP pfourth open collector output is normally set as OK (normally closed) and opens when any fault occurs.
