Number 2 means use all windings for full current capacity.
Ok, thanks Neff. So would I connect #8 and #12 to the primary, while #7 and #11 in parallel would be one leg of the output? I do understand that it might boost, in which case I would reverse the connections to the primary.
Do I have that right?
1&5 will be one leg of the primary and 2&6 will be the other leg of the primary. Same for 7&11 and 8&12 for the secondary.
From there, follow the Hammond setup.
If the voltage goes down, you've bucked the tranny.
If the voltage goes up, you've boosted it. Flip the secondary leg to primary connection and the voltage will go down.
How about two thermistors in series on the primary side? I saw in Quad II forty thermistor on HF straight to 5u4GT rectifier (this one was added for saving chinese recifier tube I guess)
Putting two in series is the same as two resistors in series. x2$
Yes to answer your question.
Most put them on the primary or secondary or both - one leg or both legs.
