    I have 4 of the 12 volt reulated power supplys.
    The question is: are the three outputs on the power supply separate sections (10 ams each) or convenient outlets for that share the max 30 amps.

    These terminals share a common rail so it 30 amps shared over the 3 terminals and are not seperate from eachother.

    The multiple terminals make connections easier, especially when connecting a single cable (capable of the power supply's total output current) isn't physically practical.
