i want to make a 6v ac-dc adapter Answered

i want to make a ac to dc converter which will give an output of 6v under the input of 220v to 240v. if it is possible please help me with the circuit diagram as well as the list of parts required for the project. it will be a great favor to me.


if it was to be bought then why this site. experience comes from experience.instead of helping him make a adapter why do u people discourage him.

Current required? regulated supply? Voltage range acceptable?

Skill level??

playing with mains is risky.

Personally I think it will cost you less or about the same to buy a wall wart type power supply. OR as suggested use one you already have.

You would probably find it easier to find / buy one (used or new) than source the transformer that you need. Why the interest in making one, or do you have the transformer already?


Here's the perfect diagram for your use.

If you don't need a regulated supply and can use a voltage that will be approx. 6 volts substitute a 6 volt transformer for the one shown and omit everything after C1,

Be careful with the 220.

How experienced are you? What will it be used for?
