36Vd.c. @ 8.3A Power Supply + Buck Converter Answered
I have a 36Vd.c. @ 8.3A Power Supply that I would like to convert into a Variable Bench Power Supply. After researching the topic, I have decided on choosing a Buck Converter as opposed to a Linear Regulator.
Shopping around online, I stumbled upon the LM2596 Converter:
Any thoughts and or suggestions?
Beyond that, I do have a general question...
I've read on a few power supply instructables that it's recommended that all rails be used (for example all yellow/12v cables) to insure a more steady current. Now being that the max output of the above mentioned power supply is 8.3A and (please correct me if I'm wrong) according to the supplied spec sheets, power is coming from 3 rails, would it be safe to assume it not necessary to feed all rails into a buck converter since its output is only 2A?
Please put me in my place...
