i got this out of an old DVD player, will it provide 24V like it says? Answered
i found this in an old DVD player.
im not entirely sure that it will work like i think it will.
normally, i would just hook something like this up, and test it. but since its (probably) connected to mains, im not going to try that until im sure it does what i think it will, under extreme precaution ;)
what i think it does, is take 250V (230V is standard in europe) and down it to 24V, both on 5A. (see pictures)
i've also looked at the PDF link. wich looks like it supports my ideas.
but i always thought that transformers worked with coils, and thus would be pretty heavy. wich this isnt, the most weight is on the 2 capacitors.
so, will this work, or do i need external parts?
and if it wont work like i described, what does it do then?
