I recently got a PeakTech 6225A power supply for my hobby of making/"tinkering"/messing around. I get many parts that I want power separately to diagnose them. I also get a lot of electromotors and get asked to see if they work.
Unfortunately, the manual states:
Do not operate the device to power inductive loads, such as electric motors, which act as a generator during overrun and thus can produce a reverse voltage!
I am very inexperienced in electronics, so I chose to ask this specific question, rather than applying concepts from answers to similar questions, as my grasp on the matter is not firm enough yet.
My idea was to make a kind of module/filter that I could plug between the power supply and the electromotor that would protect the former from reverse voltage.
There are several components buzzing in my head: a TVS diode? A MOSFET? RC snubber? Flyback diode? Would a bidge rectifier do anything, since reversing the input polarity isn't an issue, it's the reverse voltage from the inductive load.
Can I apply the circuit described in this blogpost to protect my power supply?
Could I take his (second last) circuit as is, or should I make some adjustments?
