Not heavy duty  Time owned: more than 12 months
This pwr supply (Japanese version) was doing a fine job in intermittent use for a couple of years before I started using it to power an FT-1500 controlling an IRLP node. I thought it would be no problem as the max load on the supply would be less than half of its 17 amp limit. However after about six months in heavy duty use (not continuous duty) the supply began emitting a vibrating noise -- heavier the power output on the louder the noise. Then several days later it blew the fuse -- I suspect something internal related to the noise problem as it was not subject to a surge at the time of the failure and was being delivered pure AC from a universal power supply.
