48A and 3V

Recommended Posts

Does some one know a setup to turn socket current and voltage to 48 amps and 3 volts.I may not answer for up to a week,hurricane Ike:eek::-(

A 40:1 transformer would do it. You can probably find one in an electronics store. Amps are controlled by the resistance of the load, not directly by the power supply. You should not attempt to overdraw your power supply, however. 48A will require some very thick wire.

 

For DC, you'd need (a rather large) bridge rectifier, and a very large smoothing capacitor. If you want DC, you may want to look into switch mode power supplies, although you would need a rather large one for 48A.

 

May I ask what it's for?

 

Best of luck with the hurricane.

Well its for the molten electrilosis of sodium hydroxide, as for the hurricane, i survived it with three downed trees

Unless you are doing this on a rather large scale, you don't really need 48A. You will probably need more than 3V though.

 

Get a small transformer, pass the output current through a bridge rectifier, and connect the output of the rectifier to your electrodes. Connect some large smoothing capacitors in parallel with the electrodes.

 

And an inert gas atmosphere may help if you can find one. You will need to separate the oxygen electrode also.
