power supply cable management

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to tidy up the mains cables on my set up. Has anyone got any experience with a 175-265V to DC 12V 20A 240W IP53 Outdoor Transformer Power SupplyDriver or similar. What I'm aiming for is 1 mains cable to a small transformer with 3x12v outlets for camera, mount and autoguider. Apparently they're popular in the USA but I've not heard much about them being used in the UK.

Hope somebody can help,

Kind regards,

The most popular ways of getting 12v in the UK are battery power tanks, and mains power supplies similar to your link. 

Although that one is advertised as waterproof, I wouldn't use it outside on the lawn, okay inside an observatory or an approved enclosure, but may need ventilation. 

Also it looks like a Switched Mode design, which is fine for led lights but can cause interference on your images. 

So many go for Linear workshop designs.
