Doesn't say on the CE site. Can advise when it arrives.

The warranty is 3 years handled through Samlex. The unit has to be shipped to Samlex in Canada to be repaired. They do have one shipping location here in the states that ships maybe a couple times a week to the Canada location.

Only seen that feature on expensive power supplies.
You can switch the slave motor on your lathe to a 55 turn and then just hook up to your 12 volt power supply. No sense in tying up your T35

Default Slave motor

Integy has a slave motor for your lathe. www.integy.com. 55 turn I believe. I just purchased their Xipp Super Lathe with this motor.. Though have not received it as of yet.. others use other types of motors.. You can scan thru a bunch of threads or even visit the integy forums for more info and questions that were asked...

Fred,

Thanks for that news.

FYI...Got the CE Power Supply today and the manual has no mention of a warranty at all. But I am sure happy with the way it works after a couple charges.

Is 23A PS enough for using 2 chargers and other stuff at the same time?

Depends on what your charging and at what rate. I beleive most people charge in-between 4-7 amps.. So if you were charging at the higher number then you would be pulling in 14 A... The actual powering of the charger should be pretty minor.. I have seen 2 chargers hooked up to a Novak power supply which I think is only 10A. To do that they set their novak chargers to charge at 4.5 A. But most people like to charge at more then that.

Now if you wanted to add a lathe or something else then you need to check and see how many amps the lathe will take or what ever other device you are adding... The bigger the power supply the more gadgets you can hook up and run. As Tim the Tool man says "More Power" ug ug ug ug... :-)

Jsut remember not to overload. The more current you are pulling thru your power supply the hotter that power supply gets.. Keep it cool as well.....

In general you´re right in compare to nonswitching power supplies. But there are good and there are badly designed PS and I think for the price you have to pay for a Samlex you will have a very good one.
I know lot of guys working with radio base stations are using this powersupply and they do have much higher requirements due to the HF load. So if it´s good enough for them so it really should work for us easily.
