Updated ZKIT-1 Schematic
01/29/11 at 00:30:54
 
We are now shipping our ZKIT-1 with a new power transformer.  This power transformer is the same specifications as the old one, however the wire colors are slightly different so a new schematic has been issued.

This transformer is custom made for us by Edcor USA and features a powder coated black wrinkle finish on the end bells and considerably longer leads.

Steve,

I've just finished building my kit apart from the connection of the main power transformer. I have the new version of the 240 V transformer but what's on the schematic does not tally with what's on the PCB or the leads. I have a lue, brown and red wire for connection to the power socket and then yellow, green, red and blue wires for connection to the PCB.
On the PCB I have (in order) GRN, GRN, CHASSIS GROUND, GRN/YL, RED/YL, RED and RED.

What goes where?

Thanks,

Stewart

RedHotChilli-

Here is a link to a picture of the wiring for my Zkit1. I had a black with red stripe wire, instead of a red and blue wire. I wired it up from the capacitors up, RED, RED, Black w/Red Stripe, Green w/White Stripe, GREEN, GREEN.
This is for the 120v wiring. Not sure if you are trying to hook up for 120v or 240v. Hope this helps you in some way.
Mike.

CamelFraggie,
Thanks. That did help. I had the wrong transformer - hence the confusion. All sorted now and sounding great. Smiley

If you are revising - why not add the CCE mod to the schematic and supply the extra 2 capacitors?
