Tariffs

I paid my first tariff of 10% on $120 worth of power supplies. The vendor included it as a separate item while another vendor just raised the price 10%.

I hear 25 % is in the works. So much electronic stuff comes from China. For a electronic kit, the price rise may start to become an issue.

I’m sorry about your bad experience.

If you don’t find the problem, contact Blacet about returning for repair.

Technically, it is out of warranty, but Mr Blacet is very fair to his customers. :bananaguitar:

The output should be same level as the input...

If you built it as a kit, it is time to check construction. If you have a basic scope, you can trace the input signal and perhaps see where it is getting attenuated.

These boards look like they were laid out by hand with tape, no computer. I am real skeptical that you will find gerbers...

You will probably have to do a new computer layout. Pcb houses all use gerbers these days. Just try to get film or tape! Did anyone keep their tape?

Blacet makes these but they come in a two tier bare rak. You would need two of these to get a four tier rak.

The handle/right angles sides were never a big seller. Rack ears are more popular. I’m inspired by the laser cut boat though. For anyone considering this, we have 9 Bare kits with the right angle sides left in stock. We will not be making any more. You can get the kit for $69 (regular price $109). J...

He uses Front Panel Express. Nice graphics. Not sure how they are done. Check out their web site. Very popular with short run folks but not cheap.

I see some folks just using another pc board for the front panel. These can look very good.

Blacet sold hundreds of these but the demand dried up. Too costly at this point to retool. Used ones, as suggested, are the best bet.

Protection circuit

I would highly recommend using the power supply input protection circuit in any new designs and/or adding them to old designs. This is one of Fracs pluses. A lot of Euro will just blow up if you make a error connecting the power! Its down at the bottom of the Blacet Tech Page. In case you don't know...

I picked up an 8" version and was impressed with quality. There was even a zippered net pouch for cables, etc. Still pretty wide with the covers on. Wish someone would make a 6" version and reduce the cover size. But if need protection for your modules, this would fill the bill. Under $100, free shi...
