Single Output Variable Power Supply – Build Part 4

Today I took the digital route and designed the front face of my Single Output Variable Power Supply in Photoshop. I find that its easier to lay out your project on a digital canvas as its easier to move things around to get the look you you want. Otherwise if you start drilling holes and and there in the wrong spot you have to start from scratch. I changed the wood color to grey in the picture as the whole power supply enclosure will be painted grey.


As you can see I placed the fuse holder on the top left for easy access and added a fan switch with a high and low speed setting with some LED lights. The middle potentiometer will adjust the voltage, which will be visible on the top LED display. The positive and negative banana plug output terminals are also marked and color coded for Positive and Negative DC output. The power LED light will show that the power supply is turned ON when the power switch is in the ON position.

My next step will be to cut and drill the holes on the front face of the power supply enclosure and finish the external design.
