    Thanks for the fantastic response. I just got in and checked the messages as I have been out most of the day sourcing a new power supply. Thanks to Binny I now have 2 x 12v 29amp power supplies. I learnt a valuable lesson when up scaling and that is to know how much current under full load your lights can draw to prevent one from trying to draw between 50 and 60 amps from a 33 amp Power Supply. Funny how they get really hot and then fail when you do that.

    Find Me On:
    Thats the main reason I always measure the current for full white on every string of lights. I can tell you exactly the max load on any of my power supplies in seconds, and I dont push them more than 60% normally (Except the ones on the matrix where I can easily drive the pair of 250W PSU's to close to 480W in total)
