Title: samlex 1212
Post by: WD4MTW on January 09, 2013, 08:57:18 PM
There isn't an entry for these supplies in the reviews. They seem to be going for inexpensive prices used. I read some threads on a another website that said these supplies are the same as the Samlex 1223 minus the fan. I'm curious outside the conservative specs if these supplies are capable of 15A ICS/20% duty cycle for a 40W radio @ 15A. Anyone know the capabilities of these supplies?

The 1212 is rated at 10 amps, and they DO have a cooling fan.  So no, they're not suitable for delivering 15 amps for your rig.  The 1223 is the one you want.  Google "samlex 1212" for the info on them.
