In our first analysis we posted that this power supply didn't have a MOV. However a friendly technician that works at one Seventeam distributor pointed out to us where the MOVís are located: they are squeezed between the two electrolytic capacitors from the voltage doubler (the two big capacitors located on the primary) and connected after the rectifying bridge, and not before this component as usual Ė and that is why we didnít find them at the first time. My sincere apologies to our reader for my lack of attention.

Cheers,
Gabriel.
