Title: Any experience with Manson DPD-6015 or recomendation for a similar PS ?
Post by: DC1MC on February 17, 2019, 08:09:36 am
Hello, I consider buying this chinesium PS as there is nothing else in this range that I can afford in DE and I was wondering if somebody has any experience with it, or the other related models: DPD-1830 and DPD-3030 ?

Data sheet here:

Of course, if you can suggest some hidden gem with similar parameter under 250EUR, it's most welcome.

 Many thanks,

Note these are HongKongesium not Chineseium and there is a very big difference ;) Well built and finished.

3030 thread here https://www.eevblog.com/forum/beginners/manson-dpd-3030-ps-modifications-possible/msg886288/#msg886288 (https://www.eevblog.com/forum/beginners/manson-dpd-3030-ps-modifications-possible/msg886288/#msg886288)

Dave took a look through one of their Single supplies and I have had the 0-15V @ 60A for 10 years I guess.

Thank Mr. Bean  ;D, it seem that the one that Dave dissected it's SMPS and (I hope) the DPD it's linear.
Anyway the DPD-3030 thread seem to be what I need, did you ever installed the multi-turn pots and output switches in the end ?
To me, right now the biggest drawback it's the single turn poti, 60V divided 270 degrees it's not too much precision :(.
But if the multi-turns works OK, then it's perfect, they're usually much more stable than the carbon ones.
Any chance of a schematic somewhere ?

 Thanks and cheers,

You are correct on Switchmode my 60A runs well under 20mV under heavy loads it was more the tour of the build quality than anything. Hit up @shock for another opinion on the 3030 and I think he has another Manson as well?

Never found a schematic for the 3030 but I do have multiturn pots on mine now but haven't done the current set relay thing as discussed in the thread. The 6632B aquisition sees it getting a bit less use. 3030 is Linear and has relay shifting mid range btw.
