Wayne Kerr AP2080A
« on: December 24, 2015, 03:46:58 PM »
Santa showed up a day early and in a brown UPS truck instead of his sled today.  I stole this puppy for under $100.  These are lab quality switch mode supplies and run in the mid thousands new.  They usually sell for about two grand used.  This one has a adjustment range of up to 20 volts and up to 80 amps.  Perfect for high power mobile radio and amplifier servicing.  I am still kind of dumb struck at how cheap I got it.  It is in excellent condition.  Judging by date codes it was built late in 1998.  They still manufacturer this series of power supply.  Now I just need to find another one so I can run them in master / slave mode.  Internal build quality is superb.  Whoever said only Germans and Americans could build high end test equipment never had the hood up on a Wayne Kerr.  Here are a few pictures of the internals.  Looks like they used UK made parts everywhere possible.

A very nice looking bit of gear there.
Good luck on finding a second one. May not be as cheap.
Thanks for sharing.
