Author Topic: ALS-600PS Meter Lamp?  (Read 1077 times)

I recently bought a used ALS-600 with the ALS-600PS linear power supply.  Is there supposed to be a meter lamp in the power supply?  If so, what is it and where is it?  Is it built in to the meter?  Can it be replaced?  I've had the power supply cover off but I didn't see a way to access the lamp if there is indeed one in there.

There is indeed a lamp. It's shown on the schematic, but it is not listed in the parts list. It's a standard 12 v pilot lamp if you believe the schematic. If it were mine, I'd replace it with a couple of LEDs.

When the lamps burned out on both units of my AL 600, I called Ameritron and they sent me some replacements at no charge.

I called Ameritron - 1.80 each.  I ordered two in case the AMP's meter lamp goes.  K3MOV's amp must have still been in warranty or he caught them at a generous moment. :-)

I realize this is an old post but the part number from Ameritron for the bulbs for both the Power Supply and the ALS-600 is:  355-2299
I also saw a replacement meter from MFJ with LED in the description.  I didn't call to see if it was an upgrade to the ALS-600 meter with LED's built in.
There are a couple of guys on the online auctions that are selling 12v LED tape that you can cut and stick on most anything.
