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
