Excellent Supply  Time owned: more than 12 months
Just to let everyone know - this is actually an IOTA DLS-55 power supply. IOTA makes some models for DuraComm and DuraComm puts a label on it with the DuraComm name/model. An excellent supply.

Works Without A Problem  Time owned: more than 12 months
This has been my primary DC supply for the last three years. I bolted it to the underside of my operating desk and generally forget about it. The fan seldom runs, except when the TS480HX gets "busy", and even then it is pretty quiet. It is rather like an RS-35M in that it just sits there doing its job for years. Of course, it's switching, but it still seems to be just as reliable.

The voltage is very stable, even when the HFLINK Pilot Station is in operation. Of course, it supplies the other units in the shack as well.

Very quiet, reliable and affordable. In normal operation, it's just luke warm.

Great Power Supply  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
DuraComm DPS-55 is a 55 amp, 13.8 VDC switch mode power supply. This unit is 120 VAC input with Low AC voltage shutdown. DC output is set for 13.8 VDC or 14.4 if you are using it for battery charging. Voltage regulation is +/- 1%. The unit has forced air cooling and very low RF interference output. Very suitable for HF transceivers. I use this unit to power all my HF transceivers and VHF/UHF radios. The units fan only comes on after the duty cycle exceeds 70 %. The unit has a fused output, over temp. protection and weighs only 7 lbs. It can be mounted in any position. Working temp is -10 deg. C to +50 deg. C. Output ripple is <100mv. I bought the unit from Electro-Comm at 1-800 994-4455 in Denver. They have units up to 90 amps output. I have not been able to hear any interference on any of my radios.
