The PSU101 is a universal non-switching, analog power supply. The voltage regulator circuitry is built with discrete components. It is very low noise but still capable to drive complex loads.
The mains transformer has a toroidal core for low radiation and low noise. The housing uses a double frame consisting of an external aluminium shell and an internal stainless steel frame for shielding and safety. The integrated heat-sink is oversized by a decent margin.
There is one IEC type power input with an input voltage selector (nominal 115V or 230V), a power on/off switch and a primary fuse.
There are two output sockets which are wired in parallel. The sockets are made by the Swiss company Fischer and are of a very high quality.
The output voltage can be set to 6V, 7.5V, 9V or 12V. The output current rating goes to 1A. The outputs are short circuit proof.
A green LED indicates the power on condition.
A discrete, non-switching, linear voltage regulator of our own design is used. The voltage regulator circuitry is very low noise but still high speed in order to quickly follow high frequency load fluctuations. The electrolytic capacitors are low ESR types. The toroidal mains transformer ensures low magnetic radiation and low noise operation.
The PSU101 employs a twin metal frame. The inner chassis is made of steel and acts as a very effective shield against electrostatic and electromagnetic radiation. The outer frame is made of massive anodized aluminium for additional shielding, resulting in optimal heat convection and beautiful looks.
