The dungeon power distributor
As I mentioned in the article about the Fusebox, I have a Fat Man transformer in a central place that powers a
lot of machines that normally require a wallwart. So instead of a gazilion wall warts, I have one Fat Man plus
a few cables running in a starshaped network, with FuseBoxes in between.
In my dungeon I occasionally need low power supplies (sometimes AC, mostly DC) for testing my homebrewn products and for powering the gadgets from Achatz or from US companies (the US wall warts can only be fitted here with a hammer).
So I made a small box that delivers the following voltages and levels of protection:
|9||AC||N/A||Raw||100 mA||Barrel, 2.4 mm||Metal|
|12||DC||Yes||II||300 mA||Barrel, 2.1 mm||Metal|
To the right, you see the circuit drawing for the power distributor. The switch is there to cut off power immediately in case that would be required during an experiment, or for at night when no gadgest need power. The outputs are:
