B+ xformer secondary 8% high - no big deal?
« on: December 05, 2021, 08:37:54 AM »
Voltage from the power company is 125.5VAC. 3.3 VAC tap reads 3.58; 6.6 VAC tap reads 6.89VAC, just in spec.

The B+ secondary tap reading is 8% above 161 at 173.9VAC. Is there anything I should do about that last one, or just let it ride?

Thanks,

Mike

That's OK, your line voltage is a little on the high side, but that's still reasonable.
