I picked up a project 1978 SS Mata Hari last week and the previous owner had an original transformer with a new Rottendog BPS018 rectifier board sitting unmounted with no cage in the bottom of the backbox. Unit was disassembled when I bought it, and I'm bringing it up to see what kind of work needs to be done.
I disconnected the MPU, SDB, and Lamp board leaving only J2 attached to the rectifier board so I can see the voltages coming out of it before checking out the other PCBs. Here's what I'm getting:
TP1 – 5.4VDC +or- .8VDC is 6.48VDC
TP2 – 230VDC +or- 27.4VDC is 195.7VDC
TP3 – 11.9VDC +or- 1.4VDC is 12.23VDC
TP4 – 7.3VAC +or- .9VAC is 7.3VAC
TP5 – 43VDC +or- 5.4VDC is 46.6VDC
So the 5.4v line seems a tad high and the 230v line seems a tad low. With these values, would it be ok to hook up the Solenoid Driver Board next and progress from there, or is the 195.7VDC reading for the 230VDC line indicating a transformer problem that I should solve first before proceeding? I'm a little new at this.
