    AQUARIUM power supply Made by Peteris Taurins now in stock $250

    AQUARIUM power supply Made by Peteris Taurins now in stock

    Full specifications
    Switching power supply
    Adjustable stabile output 013V, 15A
    Can be used for G7 motors- 15A @2V is not a problem also for long time using
    Input switch AC ~ 120V / 230V for power supply. (Soldering iron is
    independent, separate !)
    Protection- short circuit, temperature, overload
    Automatic temperature controlled cooler- normally off. When
    temperature rises more than 45 degree Celsius cooler starts.
    USB 5V output for charging mobile phone. Limited current 500mA for
    iPhone 4,5 and others
    Adjustable (tumbler with off switch) output for soldering iron. Options to order, choose only one:
    a) For 120V network to use 120V soldering iron;
    b) For 230V network to use 120V soldering iron;

    Comes with 80cm 16AWG silicone power wires and AC power cord
    Dimensions 26cm x 17cm x 6cm, weight 1100g

    And who said that was impossible to do? LOL

    What are the dimensions, and where does the soldering iron plug in?

    Have the merits of switching power supplies verse linear power supplies been hashed out here? As I understand the terms, as explained by a bonafide slot car and RC racing electrical engineer friend in the HOCWNN, switching means turning a transistor on and off at a rate to deliver the set DC voltage output. While linear implies a variable voltage transformer in the box with rectifiers, filters and capacitors to deliver the required DC voltage. My experience tells me I want the linear power supply but the price on some of these switching power supplies looks like a pretty good value. My electrical engineer friend maintains the switching power supply is probably OK for any sealed motor but thinks it might not work acceptably for 16Ds and up.

    In the past I understood there were problems with switching power supplies maintaining set voltages while supplying current to DC motors because of the arcing between the brushes and the commutator.

    What is the group think and experience on this?

    Modern switching power supplies are quite fine, also for cobalts, and in fact I have been using the innards of the Aquarium power supply for a number of years. Works great. Switches off if current is far too high or if the temperature get too high.

    I have two of these, one of which is over 2 years old, great stable clean power and never a fault.

    Properly filtered, the "switchers" are fine. The track you race on is probably powered by a Switch Mode power supply.
    There are "Racers" and there are "Talkers".....which one are you?

    I can attest to this being an awesome power supply. We've owned several different supplies, and this one is really nice. We also have the 3rd Eye supply, actually two of them, and love those, but since they are no longer being made, this, I think, is one of the better options out there.
