Mean Well Switching Power Supply - 24VDC, 14.6A

This is the big kahuna from Mean Well, a 350W single output switching power supply. This power supply is extremely reliable and beefy, able to output 24VDC at 14.6A. If you've been looking for a powerful power supply for your next big project, look no further. We can definitely attest to its durability with its metal casing, built-in constant current-limiting circuit, fixed switching frequency at 90KHz and ability to withstand a 300VAC surge input for up to five seconds.

Inside the metal case that surrounds the power supply you will find a selector switch to change the voltage range between 90VAC to 132VAC and 180VAC to 264VAC, or 254VDC to 370VDC. This specific model is cooled by forced air cooling with a built-in DC fan (with On/Off control) and operates at a temperature of -20°C to +60°C. Mean Well has really outdone themselves with their power supplies, which are high quality and should last for quite some time without any loss in reliability!

How to Power a Project

February 7, 2013

A tutorial to help figure out the power requirements of your project.

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.


Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.
See all skill levels

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

    I have three MW PSs and am very satisfied. I use the 12, 24, and 48v units, although I fried the 48v unit with a metal shaving that managed it's way into the unit. :-( They function very well, and are fairly quiet. If you need a very nice reliable PS, I recommend them. Another nice feature that isn't obvious is the multiple mounting points. There are threaded holes in the back and both sides, and the multiple connection points have been very useful as well. A 120/240v switch is provided, and the units are adjustable to fine tune the output voltage. Oh, one other thing, my units came with covers to go over the connection terminals, at 240vac, I really appreciate it. Bryan, CTO SeaBird Simulations LLC
