Topic: Combining the Ampere of two voltage regulator? (Read 4 times) previous topic - next topic


Well the following are 12vdc 3 amp linear regulators in TO-3 package:

and lambda sometime ago use to have a 12vdc 5 amp regulator in a TO-3 package that you can sometimes find sold as new old stock:



do you have alternative solutions than buying a new regulator? :D


You don't want to do that there not going to do what you think. One will try to put out more the it should and basically cutoff the second one. See there not going to supply the same voltage.

I would do this use a PNP to get you more current

i simulate that circuit using circuit wizard and it is not working.


I guess they put that in there data sheet for looks It works.
