    Good evening, my question is in regard to my Pyramid PS-26KX power supply: are the Amperage and Voltage meters supposed to light up so I can read them in the dark? Seems odd they would not light up!!

    I uploaded a user manual that has a basic schematic to this thread:
    http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=21530

    The schematic doesn't show the meters. The features list does indicate that it has meters, but not that they are illuminated. It DOES say that the power switch is illuminated. So, I'll have to guess that they were not originally illuminated.

    Don't see why you couldn't add some white LEDs with a resistor in series with them to light the meters; there's a 12v regulator you could power them from.

    Good evening Sgt,
    I downloaded the manual and you are correct in saying it only mentions the illuminated power switch. I was thinking of putting in the LED's also, thanks for the confirmation that it is possible--I will look into it. Thank you very much.
