Where did you get the toroidal supply? Came with no paperwork?

If there is ZERO resistance something is open on the secondary side.....IF indeed you have the output correct.

Picture please....
Came from a surplus outlet on the west coast recommended by Jerry Biehler (macona on HSM) & it was NIB.

Re: Inrush current limiter?

Mine has yellow, orange, gray & green. Resistance reading across the yellow/orange pair is 1ohm, gray/green is the same. I tied those pairs together, then the hot to one pair & neutral to the other. Plugged in the juice & no sparks, flames or blown fuse but there's no output. Does it matter which pa...

Re: Inrush current limiter?

Dickeybird, what makes you think you need an ICL? The voltage is rather low. Looks like you will have a 50VDC power supply. Are you blowing fuses or tripping a breaker or? I'm not so sure I would be concerned with a bleed resistor for that voltage. Now if you were rectifying 110VAC, yes, ICL and bl...

Inrush current limiter?

I have a 36V-16A toroid (wired for 110V input) for my mill's power supply. At the moment I have 2 x 100VDC-10000mfd caps and a 100V-30A rectifier. Is there a ballpark inrush current limiter value I can use? The data I found at "Google Engineering University" is way over my head so I'm hoping someone...

Last evening 11 pm 64 degrees and raining. 8 am 9 degrees truck doors frozen shut.
Sounds like the same weather we had the night before. Where do you live?

750w @ 2:1, 330 ipm...sounds like you're building a log splitter! :shock: :lol:

Re: HERCUS Mill Retrofit

I'm curious, how did you manage to get the VCP to display on a 4:3 monitor? I never did & had to buy a widescreen which is against my frugal nature! ;)

Re: CNC12 G-codes

Question on the offline version off Intercon. Does this program do both mill and lathe programming for the $99 price? I think it does. I have it on a PC at my day job & I'm pretty sure I saw both icons on the desktop. I'm at home today (snow & ice everywhere) or I'd make sure for you. Somebody will...
