'[EE]: Newfound Warp-13 PIC Programmer - POWER SUPP'
2002\07\06@072242 by Kieren Johnstone

Hi,

I'm having REAL problems locating a suitable power supply for the Newfound
Warp-13 PIC Programmer, a cheap PICstart plus basically.  I live in the UK,
so I've looked at Radio Shack and Maplin, but as far as I can tell (I'm just
getting into electronics) nothing is suitable, and I dont know any other
electronics supply sites.  Details can be found:
http://www.dontronics.com/newfound.html.

Applicable information:

You will need to provide your own power supply suitable for the country you
live in A wall wart that can supply 12VAC or 17-22VDC  @200mA is ideal. The
WARP-13 power connector is a 2.1mm DC power socket and is not polarity
sensitive due to the full bridge rectification onboard the WARP-13.

and

This programmer requires an external power supply of 12VAC or 16VDC. It has
a diode bridge on the input, so it accepts both AC and DC. The input Jack
size is 2.1mm
Any plug pack, or wall wart that will supply 100ma or more will suit this
unit.

Please, help me!  I really want to get into this stuff.


Thanks,
Kieren Johnstone

Don't know what your question is. Looks like your answer is in your question.
There is sufficient rectification and regulation so you can use almost any wall
transformer available. Radio Shack has exactly what you need. I've used a
transformer from 9vac to 15vdc with no problem. Even though the AC ones will
work, the DC ones usually have an extra filter cap in them for added filtering
but not really necessary.

Kieran,

There are two options in the Maplin catalogue.

1.  PL65V 18VDC Switched mode PSU for #14.99

2.  GU10L 12VAC PSU for #9.99

The only problems I can see is that the PL65V doesn't specify a plug
size and the GU10L has a 2.5mm plug.

Regards,

Martyn.

My question was, I couldnt find a suitable power supply that works in the
UK; could you refer me to the URL for the Radio Shack product you found
please?

Don't know if I can help you. I don't know what type of transformrs are
available in the UK Radio Shack stores. You might just take your specs into the
store and see if they can match one up for you.

How about this...  Maplin part # GU10L.  You will probably
just need to find the right connector for your programmer,
but if you're programming PICs, I guess a connector shouldn't
be a problem.  See...

Hi,

Pic Dude (Neil) is right.  The GU10L is the best part for this
application, but you will need to change the output plug somehow (it is
2.5mm and you need (allegedly) 2.1mm).  Before I go any further, if you
happen to live near Preston go to CPC (North Preston) and buy the thing
you want from there.  If you do not live near Preston, do not pass Go,
do not collect 200currency units (this is an international list, after
all), and instead buy the HH60Q or HH61R 2.1mm plug.  I'm guessing the
HH60Q is what you actually want, because the other one is the 'long
reach' version, that you'll need only if the power socket (on the
programmer) is behind a panel and well recessed.

At this point you have two options:

1) Cut off the 2.5mm plug and solder on the 2.1mm plug.  You say you are
a newcomer, but I have to assume you know how to solder...  This will
void the warranty of the power supply.  Don't forget to put the plastic
shroud onto the cable *before* soldering the plug on.

2) Buy a 2.5mm socket (JK12N) and a short piece of cable (1m of XR39N
Zip Wire) and make an adapter.  You can plug the PSU into the socket,
and then into the programmer.  Because you are using AC it won't matter
how you wire the cable, but you'll thank yourself for wiring centre to
centre and outer to outer.  This way you won't void the warranty, and
you still have the 2.5mm plug for your next project.

Before you buy anything, double check the specs. of the PSU and your
programmer, but I think these instructions are okay.

Good luck,

Andy

Thanks, this appears to be the easiest option!
Thanks also to everyone else, this Piclist thing doesn't seem to be so bad
after all ;-).

Kieren,
      I have a warp-13 too and first I must say I love it.  Second
here's what I did for a PSU.

You must have a voltmeter lying around if you don't, your going to need
one for working with pics.  :)  Rip apart old electronics junk (if you
have any) and take out the mains transformer it's shouldn't be long
before you come across a 12V transformer, they are REALLY common.  Just
keep measuring them until you find one.

As for the plug, if you do decide to go with the PSU your looking at
you'll be pleased to know a 2.5mm fits into the socket.  You have to
bend the centerpin down _SLIGHTLY_, so it makes good contact, but this
is what I did.

So my PSU is a 12V transformer (from an answering machine), with a 2.5mm
end (it's all I had lying around).

Hope this helps and feel free to contact me if you want more info on my
experiences with the warp-13.  :)

Aaron

"this Piclist thing doesn't seem to be so bad after all ;-)"

Since you're new here, take my word for it... "this Piclist
thing kicks some major butt!" :-)
