Astro-Physics 15V, 10A Load Regulated Power Supply
For those of you in cold climates, or for AP 1200 and 1600 owners with large loads, this is the power converter of choice. This unit is custom made in the U.S. for Astro-Physics and converts standard 120 volt AC household current to 15 volts (+/- 0.05 volts) at 10 amps. This rugged supply is a solid-state electronically-regulated power source with built-in protection circuitry that safeguards both the power supply and the connected equipment. Its ripple spec is less than 5 mV peak to peak at full load. This power converter comes with a lighter plug adapter cord (CABPS15) for connection with your mount's power cable.
Please note: The fuse for this power supply is cleverly hidden above the AC plug on the back of the unit. It is actually a part of the plug receptacle. The AC power cord must be unplugged from the unit to change the fuse.
- Input: 105 to 125 volt 60 Hz AC
- Output: 15 (+/- 0.05) volt DC; 7 amp continuous, 10 amp intermittent (up to 5 minutes), 11.5 amp peak
- Output Ripple: 5 mV RMS
- Operating Temp: 14 degrees F (-10 degrees C) to 131 degrees F (55 degrees C)
- Dimensions/Weight: 4 3/8 H x 7 1/2 W x 10 5/8 D; 12 lb.
For those of you traveling internationally: According to the manufacturer, you MUST transform 220 volt 50 Hz current to 115 volts before using this power supply. They say it will operate at the proper voltage at either 50 or 60 Hz, but at 50 Hz AC input, the unit will provide slightly less amperage. Astro-Physics has not tested this assertion from the manufacturer.
