Voltage converter 1
The Iimiter is capable of converting a 70-260 V r.m.s. alternating voltage into a 180-350 V direct voltage. For that, a full-wave rectifier, contained in an MC34161, is used as a voltage doubler at low input voltages and as a standard rectifter at high input voltages. In this way, an input voltage variation of x4 is reflected in an outputvoltage change of not greater than x2.
