    I am sick and sicker of all the many power supplies that drive all my equipment. From the ones that drive my LED lighting , the ones that drive the flow pumps etc.

    So, my idea, nobody copy now as I need to put bread on the table.

    A solution please? @dallasg

    I am looking for a controllable power supply builder/DIY that has a number of DC power outputs. Some static, some settable and others controllable.

    The gist is, one unit will supply power to all. The level of controllability depends.

    Keith, try asking this question on SA 4x4 Community as well.

    There is a few guys that build some impressive DC stuff.

    Len, this is something that has been nipping at my but for some time. Aquarium controllers take care of the switching issues. More and more bits of kit are becoming controllable through WIFI. However, all still need power.
