Hi,

I have a Powersoft K10 with a problem which after some scope probing seems to be isolated to a fault on the PSU driver PCB board (KALSU16 CS000345) and some components are also burnt and i need the values etc.

Has anyone got the circuit / schematic for this board (just this board only needed).

Hope someone out there can supply me with this info.Thumbs Up

Real Electronics are the Powersoft UK service centre, i dont know if they will give you schematics though.

Tried Real electronics, not interested in giving anything out, just interested in getting the repair sent to them. Cry

Your best bet is to try borrow an amp and do some tracing. Finding schematics for stuff like the K10 is nigh impossible.  Dead

Probably because even though they’re far from perfect, Real or their equivalent have the service contract? Considering how many utterly cowboy repair jobs I’ve seen on Powersoft power supplies, I understand why.

You can also always send it to Powersoft HQ directly but you’ll have to be comfortable with the shipping time

The driver circuit as i can make out is nearly the same as the Q & D series PSU driver apart from a higher frequency oscillator at the front end & some major re-work on the FET Bootstrap driver circuit and of course now all surface mounted components.

My problem is in this area mostly and because this part has changed a lot and some surface mount caps & resistors are burnt are unreadable, hence the circuit for this would cure the problem. The only other option is to copy the circuit from another board from a working amplifier & draw the circuit on my PCB CAD program (which is the easy part), but i don't know how long another Powersoft K10 will arrive at my repair bench with a working board in Cry.

Here's hoping for someone out there who has the circuit. Thumbs Up

Yes - but sometimes even that doesn´t guarantee schematics.

I had a Behringer repair a while ago and managed to get hold of the main tech at the official repair place in Barcelona. He told me that even they weren´t given all the schematics - just relacement boards for most of the products. Anything else had to go back to the main office in Germany.  Ouch
