Power supply question...

Post by DocsMachine » Thu Nov 30, 2017 7:42 pm

In one of Marty's videos, he mentions replacing the power supply provided with the Acorn board, with one that also has a 5V tap for the stepper driver signal power. He mentioned the name of the supplier, but I can't recall the name, nor which video I saw it in.

Can anyone point me towards that supplier, or better yet, to the actual power supply he was referring to? Much as I'd like to rewatch all the videos, I'm just a tad short on time right now. :D

Thanks in advance.
Doc.

It was a Mean Well power supply Doc. That's the only thing about videos I don't like. Hard to search for a specific little bit of info.

A lower cost alternative would be the Meanwell RD-35B
