    Default Powering 12 volt rainbow floods

    Need some help from others who have already done this. What do you use to power your 12 volt LED's. And where is the best place to find them?

    If Mark chimes in then he can give you more details on what he used and how much load you need to support. But I can tell you that for the Mighty Mini floods, we used 24 volt supplies that cost $15 each from MPJA.com .. They should have similar 12v supplies.

    We used model 16854PS, 24V, 6.5A POWER SUPPLY
    Thanks,

    Denny speaks for me and a couple others too. MPJA.com was great. I ordered one day and discovered I needed more, and I called and they combined the orders to save me shipping. Not a lot of places would do that.

    MPJA and Circuit Specialists have the 24V supplies. CS also has 12V supplies, but you'll have to put them in an enclosure. Just get a power supply with enough Amps to run as many floods as you have.

    I've got a PC power supply that I mounted with 3 DC boards that I'll be using for my LED strip stars (12V) and some other LED strips in tubes (5V). They all went into one of the surplus big boxes that cost about $15 that John and I bought a few months back. I need to take some pictures to show how they all fit, but I'm planning to run 50+ DC channels out of that one box and PS.

    Mighty Mini floods are running from a separate box with one of those MPJA PSs along with the controller.

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!
