Power Supply/ Breaker Question

Maybe I should ask for a replacement anyway, but call an electrician to be double-sure.. Circuit breaker questions GFI-GFCI questions Odd lighting behavior Finding source of short circuit Finding a ground-fault Outages Finding a loose connection Overloads Shocks High utility bill Circuit breaker questions Does a Have you tried calling the circuit breaker company and asking them? GFI-GFCI questions What is a GFI for? http://macland.net/power-supply/power-supply-5v-question.php

I just recently added 3x 580's to my system and that is the only other variable. James Varney: WX7G >> Buy the amp and fire it up. Neweggs calculator says that I am using 1398watts but I can't imagine this being correct. solved What would be a nice power supply for me? look at this site

Luckily the breaker tripped as this could have caused some serious damage to the locomotive reverse board.I'd like to install 10A breakers in line to all the tracks so that they I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some advice about my new power supply. How do I calculate the watts (or amps) on 120V given that I'll be pulling 1300W on 12V? You may have to register before you can post: click the register link above to proceed.

  1. Without a tester, the only way to tell is to touch a third or fourth thing from each, at some risk to your health!
  2. I did slowly re-add devices to the outlets and as soon as I plugged in that last lamp, I couldn't turn on the computer without tripping the breaker.
  3. Breaker size will not help this situation but careful diligence to the condition of electrical feeds will.
  4. A GFI receptacle or a GFI breaker is to prevent fatal shocks at likely locations -- where people operating faulty tools or appliances can easily become a good path to ground,
  5. I'm asking this to better educate myself so I can understand what needs to be done.
  6. COLGeekMay 8, 2013, 9:28 PM If so, unplug everything but the PC and monitor and see if the breaker gets tripped.

  8. They are all plugged into 4 different outlets actually.
  9. For instance, an Open.
  10. See GFIs.

See Main open and Two Circuit. First, think of whether you have been using more; refer to Michael Bluejay's page on electric usage. It's certainly cheap enough and should do the job well. Always use true DC circuit breakers for those. · actions · 2014-Sep-12 8:00 am · rtbtrjoin:2014-09-11

rtbtr to alphapointe Member 2014-Sep-12 2:53 pm to alphapointeMaybe consider something like this small panel

There's also the time curve; at 15A it will take 10.8 seconds (max) to trip./M · actions · 2014-Sep-11 11:54 pm · alphapointeDon't Touch MeMVMjoin:2002-02-10Columbia, MO

alphapointe MVM 2014-Sep-12 6:53 am This is no different than accidentally overloading an extension cord. Should I call an electrician who may be able to figure out if there is a problem with my room's wiring? (My house is only 9 years old by the way.)#2. It is calculated by multiplying amps x volts. 1300 watts will draw approx 108amps at 12v on the output side of the power supply, and on the input side it will

From a poor connection or contact somewhere along the circuit or even at a main wire outdoors or in the panel. unix - accidentally moved everything under root to /old - Solaris 10 How do we know that gravity is spacetime and not a field on spacetime? Chances are you're pulling close to 1200 watts.

when you increase the voltage on "gate" items the amperage across it is not linear, it is not logrythmatic either but it does ramp up Very quickly, As you increase beyond Perhaps it was a long day and I was just tired.12 Amps is well within the draw of a 15 Amp breaker, but since I plan on having Air Conditioning installed While it appears to be within an acceptable range I plan to add a second PS to the F16 I am not an electrician so just asking other more knowledgable folks Discussions Cyber Deals Vendor Discussion Forum Feedback Mod Hotline « Previous Thread | Next Thread » Forum Hardware Power Supplies and Electronic Devices Power supply and Circuit breaker question.

If this doesn't improve things, the old breaker is fine; look for another cause than the breaker. this contact form If a surge existed, then power supply (or motherboard) is permanently toasted; never works again. GFCI stands for "ground-fault circuit interrupter". You can also assume that unless you plan on running all pixels at full white, you'll never actually reach this theoretical power draw.Running some numbers, you've calculated 1300watts, which at 0.384

It is sloppy. For details on how to narrow the spot down see Finding your open. Then I decide to read the PSU instruction book....I know right, who does that???? have a peek here The plan is to have anywhere between 108 and 84 pixels per string, in order to avoid power injection; some will merely be thrown onto bushes, some on a megatree, some

Your GFI that won't reset could have been installed incorrectly recently; since 2002 GFI receptacles have had a feature that won't let them reset if they are hooked up wrong or This is the best site I have ever seen anyone put up. God knows there is enough sloppiness in today’s world.No for the Myth Busters part.

Today I went out and bought a new Asus Rampage Extreme III (same mobo I had) and a new Thermaltake Toughpower 1200 watt (4 SLI supported) PSU.

The change from a 500w to a 620w PSU shouldn't cause this problem unless the circuit is nearly overloaded already. DC voltage rating will be much lower than AC voltage rating.Anyway arcing is not a problem at 24V DC, but you need to be careful at 48V PoE voltage or with Surges occur typically once every seven years.

I want to protect a 24VDC circuit at about 3 amps. Otherwise or later, an electrician. Some things are not working; how can I know where to look for the problem? Then convert that assumption into a fact.

I have added a photo of the breaker box diagram showing the 5/10 hot bar blades. Only ISP provided, .EDU, .GOV, .MIL e-mail addresses are Classifieds approved. The only useful answer requires basic facts be provided and then replies with numbers. See Flicker.

Here they are. Is this 1200watt PSU not enough? First: is it a conventional circuit breaker, a GFCI, or an AFCI? Thanks a lot for your help =) It is really reassuring to know that my problems probably aren't my PSU.
