i have a current problem i need to transform 120vac to 24vdc at 8 amps (minimum) how can i do this? i know i will need a Rectifier of some sorts. but i cant find a 24v transformer that has enough amps to drive the motor. can anyone clue me in on how i could do this with a 24vac 40va transformer simply or is there an inexpensive solution already made up?
OK.. so what your saying is... say i use a standard 24volt 40va transformer. what rectifier would i need and is it available at say. radio shack? or need i order it online. basically what im looking for is to power a drive motor for a gun range the guy said that it is a dc motor and it draws 8 amps he also said it can handle 40 volts with no problem so im assuming its a 6-90vdc motor. it has to travel back and forth 50 ft out and back. so what i want to do is make a power supply out of a 40va transformer if possible (to keep cost down and easy fix) what can i do to make it so that it can handle a this large demand? they need it to run on a standard M. ON/OFF/M. on toggle switch 2 pole (that i have)
so basically i just need to make a power supply :)
if you can help with a wireing diagram and a parts list that would be AWSOME.
