Hi Mike,

Do you know what components they have used for the Snubbers? Also on that link I posted they appear to have a cap identical or very similar to the 0.1uf piggybacked on a resistor near each pair of TIPs.

Hopefully their design is robust with a range of transformers, being sold for DIY building Inverters there would be many different arrangements.

I have the PCB design ready but will be a couple days before I have time to make the actual PCB.

PS Just had another look at the pictures online and I can not see any sign of Snubbers could they be between the heatsinks?Edited by Madness 2017-03-31
