Couple of questions

Post by rip » Thu Oct 10, 2019 8:35 am

Can you guys let me know if this looks okay? ... DwR0-5lefd

I’m concerned about the PTs wires going between V6&V7, it looks neat, and I’ve seen it done multiple ways; just wanted to confirm that I didn’t violate some rule about how to route them.

And is it okay to wire up the typically unused transformer leads?

The leads I’m talking about are the
100v tap on the 1202-84 output transformer
240v tap on the 1204-43 power transformer

...Because I noticed the modern voltage and impedance selectors don’t have the front labels for them, they seem to have 6 poles/positions available that could be used. Usually calling out 3 of the available 6 positions.

So I was thinking of putting the 100v tap on the other side of the 16 ohm lug; or the 240v tap on the other side of 230v lug...

Any reason not to? Has anyone done this? Seems better than just leaving it unconnected...thoughts?
