What are you refering to the PS itself? or some Mosfet circuit connected to it?on a SMPS that has MOSFETs and other transistors, with the board remover from the power supply to discharge the power capacitors or any capacitor on the board by grounding the two leads together. if not what is the preferred way?
thanks I just ordered some 5 watt 20k resistors, if 20k is too big can parallel 2. going to put them on the end of a short plexiglass rodUse a 10K resistor across the terminals.
Yes it should work with 20K resistors, and if you want to put two in parallel to make 10K it will work just fine.thanks I just ordered some 5 watt 20k resistors, if 20k is too big can parallel 2. going to put them on the end of a short plexiglass rod
The way I read it, the OP has the board removed and wonders if the caps are still charged and how to discharge them. !Are you pulling the boards out of a SWITCHMODE POWER SUPPLY WHILE IT IS OPERATING???
or after it is switched off??
