Astec built this 12 VDC regulated and filtered power supply to output 288 watts continuously, and 400 watts peak for powering critical IBM storage servers. This power supply was then fitted to a durable steel case, in the USA, for use in many hobbyist applications: model railroads, slot car racing, power for amplifier boards, science experiments, and much more. It also works great in electronics labs as a reference bench top power supply.
Based on a world-compatible design, the power supply senses input voltage and works with 100 to 240 VAC mains power, 50/60 Hz, and consumes up to 700 watts of power during peak output. Active fault monitoring for short circuit and over-current conditions is built-in, protecting the power supply from failure. Not only is this power supply cULus recognized, it also meets TUV criteria for approval.
Power output is provided by two 1/4" thick binding posts, which are wired in parallel with the chassis mounted cigarette lighter socket. A coiled six foot, 2.5A fuse-protected cigarette lighter adapter with 2.1 x 5.5 mm right angle, center-negative plug (with power indication) is included for powering mobile accessories; a six foot 18/3 IEC power cable is also included.
Save over 40% off the original retail price of the power supply alone through this Parts Express exclusive buyout. Hurry, supplies are limited! If you need higher voltage, use the power supply with this DC to DC step-up voltage booster.
Note: This power supply has been internally tested at Parts Express to supply the advertised continuous and peak power ratings using an adjusted 320-3376, to step up the voltage to 50 VDC, for powering the 320-309 amplifier board, with reference level sine waves for signal input, and connected to two four ohm transducers wired in parallel for a 2 ohm load.
