Huntkey Jumper 600B Power Supply Review

Transient Filtering Stage
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

As we have mentioned in other articles and reviews, the first place we look when opening a power supply for a hint about its quality, is its filtering stage. The recommended components for this stage are two ferrite coils, two ceramic capacitors (Y capacitors, usually blue), one metalized polyester capacitor (X capacitor), and one MOV (Metal-Oxide Varistor). Very low-end power supplies use fewer components, usually removing the MOV and the first coil.

In the transient filtering stage, this power supply has four Y capacitors and one X capacitor more than the minimum required; however, it doesn’t come with an MOV, which is responsible for removing spikes coming from the power grid.
