This IEC Power Supply is a robust and compact unit and is designed for general laboratory, education or home use. It is suitable for use with our Hodson's Light Box or our Hodson's Light Box and Optical Set. It is also suitable for most experiments where close voltage regulation and DC ripple are not important. Standard 4mm spin free socket head terminals as are provided for both AC and DC outputs. These terminals will accept banana plugs, as well as spade (fork) terminals, and Crocodile/Alligator clips can also be used.

The modern compact housing has a convenient sloping front panel for ease of use and two inbuilt handles for ease of carrying. Mains cable is removable for ease of storage and replacement. Rubber feet grip the bench and prevent the unit from rocking or sliding.

NOTE: If the DC ripple must be reduced, a suitable electrolytic capacitor (perhaps 2500 microfarads x 40 volt) may be connected across the DC output terminals. When using electrolytic capacitors, take care to use correct polarity.



  • 220/240V.AC. 50/60Hz 0.5 Amp Standard removable mains cable.
  • By illuminated mains on/off rocker switch on front panel.
