How to Order
Why does the fan not run when
I plug in my power supply ?
A: The fan is Proportional (load and heat driven). If you are operating with enough load applied, the unit will begin to warm up and at a pre determined point the fan will turn on and speed up if heat increases. Our products are tested at 100% load twice before shipping and have no problem running at full load. A: The capacitors on the circuit board are recharging.
My Bulldog is a little warm
even though I don't have a "load" applied ?
Do I need to use the
external grounding lug ?
Why didn't the external
fuse blow when I shorted out the D/C output ?
Why is there 1 or 2 fuses
in my bulldog power supply ?
I Blew my fuse, but I can't
get it out,.. What gives ?
Q: Why isn't there an off/on switch on the power supply?
A: If there were an off/on switch, it would weld itself closed at some time because of large power surges caused while the capacitors load up during power up. Also there is no need since the power supply operates in a very low power state when not in use.
Q: Can I adjust the voltage output of my power supply?
A: Yes, but the instructions are only for the 90 amp model and the Slot Car Track model. Other units have an adjustment but not in the same place. Also note that the adjustment will only adjust the voltage -/+ 1.5 volts. Some will go a little farther. Do so at your own risk, Damage caused by trying to adjust the unit is not covered by the warrantee.
