270-1809 Is the part number - And it just barely fits in lengthwise.

It is plastic but it comes with a plastic and metal screw down cover.

In the initial post, there's a picture in the bottom left corner, showing a pot on the end of the supply, labelled "Voltage Adjust".

What is the adjustable output range of the supply?

I played with this, the range was about 9.5v - 15v. It will go higher than 15 volts but the PS shuts itself off beyond 15v.

a few questions on supply connections

Would some one please be a little more specific on the connections for these supplies.
1. For the AC, does it matter which of the 2 AC wires from the AC power plug go to AC(L) or ACin?

2. Why are there two +V and two -V terminals. I assume I use one +v and one -1 for my charger. Are there two independent DC outputs each of which I can connect a charger to?

3.I guess the S terminals never need to be used. Is that correct?

4.Is a cooling fan needed.

No, but make sure you use a grounding cord/plug.

No, but as long as you are under the maximum amps, you can connect several chargers (at the same voltage usually 13.8) to the same terminals.

Correct for our use for R/C hobbies.

Not generally, but it depends how many amps you will be pulling from the unit. I so far have only pulled 5 amps max. If you hook two chargers up, I would sugget monitoring the power supply to see how hot it gets. Adding a 12 volt dc or a 120 volt AC computer fan wwould be easy.

I got mine this week and it works great. I'm using a Supernova charger and the charger gets warmer than the power supply.

I also talked to Sue at Ramboy and she said she's going to get their tech person to type up a short post on how to hook these up, which will be nice for the beginner.

Not associated with Ramboy in any way except the power supply.

No switch, no power cord. This is definitely a DIY power supply. But it is easy to DIY. Just get a grounded power cord. Stip the insultion of of the end of the wires for about 3/8". Then screw the correct wires to the power in connector screws. If you want a switch you could add an "in-cord" switch or a toggle switch.

I got a small project box and a lighted 120Volt toggle switch from Radioshack. As soon as I have some time I am going to use the project box to cover the contacts on the end of the power supply and mount the on off toggle switch and possibly a 120 volt AC or 12 volt DC fan on the side grating of the power supply. I'll take pictures and post it here with part numbers.

Got Mine

Received my PS Saturday. Just happened to still have my old micro wave that I replaced and used the cord from it on the PS. Worked like a champ! What a bargain!
