    I have some Bunnings lights that I want to control from dc. They are rated at 31 volts. What size power supply will I need?

    That will depend if they are AC or DC lights. So when its says 31 volts is that using DC or AC volts

    Eddy on the power supply/flasher unit it says PRI 100-240 volts.
    SEC 1 Output 31V
    SEC 2 Output 31V

    You may need a picture as it doesnt state if its AC or DC output which make the difference.

    Still doesnt confirm if its AC or DC but my hunch is its DC. Do you have a volt meter so you can confirm if its DC or AC output. If its DC then this means the strings are 31 volts so that means a 32 volt DC power supply adjusted down a little.
    But still would like to 100% confirm if its AC or DC
