Ask Sir Tony - an Electronics/Electrical Q & A thread

  • hi question po, may home theater subwoofer na binigay sa akin, 50hz lang yun nakalagay, magagamit kaya dito yun? 50/60hz sa pinas di po ba?
  • pahabol pala 240v 50 hz
  • Yes
  • Mga sir, tanong ko lang po, ano po dapat size ng main breaker ko kung ang size ng wire ko papuntang poste ay #10gauge lang, ganyan po kasi mga wire mg residential sa tondo yung mga orange wire po. Sabi kasi ng electrician na pinagtanungan ko dapat daw 60A which i doubt kasi based from my research #10 wires are for 30A circuit breaker only, Please correct me if im wrong.
  • Hi guys, good day!

    Saan po kaya may available na ganitong cable?

    9-Pin DIN - Male (both ends)

    I tried lahat ng mall sa ortigas, mandaluyong, wala ako makita huhu
  • ^I don't even have any idea what that kind of cable is used for, but it's seems uncommon since even looking online such cables are hard to find. However, RS Components (<click here for link>) is selling 9-pin male DIN cables BUT only one end has the male connector, the other end is free-ended (wires only):

    If you're desperate you can splice two such cables together to create a dual-terminated male 9-pin DIN cable, the wires are color coded anyway and you just need to solder together the wires of the same color. I have no idea how it affects performance of the cable though. Or, if you can find a solo male 9-pin DIN connector, that would be a ideal. Mouser ( sells one (Kobiconn mini-DIN) but looking at the pin layout (PDF here: <click here for link>) versus that of the one being sold at RS Components, this connector has a different layout. Seems the 9-pin DIN configuration is NOT standardized.
