Lock-down project: Isolated wide range ac voltage interface

This post was originally published on this site

I needed to synchronise with a variable ac voltage source, without loading it very much – the source is both variable frequency and variable voltage. So I knocked up this circuit (note, right, pnp collector resistor actually 2k2, primary decouple actually 470nF. All passives subject to optimisation) I say knocked up, but it took a …
