The Keyall Discrete kit allows the owner of a keyer with a low voltage positive (NPN or n-channel MOSFET) keying transistor to drive the vacuum tube transmitters and transceivers of yesteryear. This unit will key negative voltage rigs (grid block keying) or positive voltage rigs (cathode keyed tube transmitters and conventional +13.8V powered solid state rigs). The output transistors and capacitor are rated at 1000 V and 3.1 A (3100 mA). The Keyall Discrete will normally key a single transmitter. The use of the word: discrete refers to the fact that only LEDs, transistors, resistors and a capacitor are used in the kit, no ICs (Integrated Circuits) are used.

The Keyall Discrete is an update of the Keyall HV kit

  • design is a MOSFET based solid state relay, SPST-NO single pole, single throw, normally open
  • high voltage output is optically isolated from the low voltage input
