I have a 110V to 12V converter. The converter when setting idle puts

out 14Volts. Is this a problem if I want to power my ST-4 and my 600GTO

mount with the conveter?. Does the 600GTO mount and the ST-4 have

voltage regulaters built in that will regulate the output of the 12V

converter?



Thanks...Terry Johnson

In Short, you wont damage you equipment at 14V.



I use two 32 AH Gel Cell batteries to power my 1200

Mount, ST-4, Dew Heaters, Dew gun, and Computer. When

the batteries are fully charged they sit right at 13.9

volts. The first thing I turn on is the mount, which

is getting the surface charge of the batteries. But as

soon as I load the batteries with the components the

voltage drops, the same should happen when you us the

12V convertor. I think more importantly, does your

convertor put out enough amperage to power all your

accessories. The AP mounts use 2 amps when slewing and

the ST-4 uses 0.5 amps mostly for cooling (if I

remembered correctly). Another question is how clean

is the power delivered, a good power converter has an

output that is almost straight line on a oscilloscope,

while the others display bumps or jagged lines.



I hope this helps,



Tim

Tim, my converter puts out 30 amps at a straight line. I have drawn apicture of the electrical wiring diagram for my system to include the ST-4,Kendrick Dew System (4 band system) and the mount, plus the PC and so on. Youwill need VISIO to open the document Let me know what you think. Thanks for the help...Terry Johnson----- Original Message -----From:Tim KhanTo: ap-gto@egroups.comSent: Friday, January 07, 2000 4:16AMSubject: [ap-gto] Re: 110V to 12VConverter
