A quick google produced this page ( http://www.techcraftngrafix.com.sg/articles_dnt/Using%20Servo%20for%20D.pdf ) and with your knowledge of circuits (voltage, ground, signal needed), this might be another method to consider.

If you really want some grunt, Seiko servos ( http://www.vantec.com/ssps105.htm ) will run up to 24v and produce +/- 27 ft/lbs of torque.

As part of your circuit design, you would want to slow the transit speed of the servo, as most typically go full range very quickly ( < .3 sec ).

Servos have a solid place in mechanical controls and positioning, this application isn't it.

This is really what linear actuators are designed to do.

It's just that usually, to move a panel of this size, (about 44" by 20") there's more room to work with to place the actuator.

The Progressive automation website was a bit challenging to order thru, and the 800 number doesn't work down here, and the real kicker was that UPS was the only available shipping method, so that was $119 for shipping, and UPS will shaft me for customs brokerage once it gets here, so figure another $40 on top of the $119.

Hopefully, they'll be here for the weekend.

I also ordered a bunch of stuff to do the new res setup on one pair of pumps. I ordered extra fittings and such, so that I can try a couple subtle differences to see which works out best.

That was Express Mailed, so It'll be here for the weekend.


And if that wasn't enough . . . . .

I had two plain brown mystery boxes at the post office today. . . . . I figured it had to be some kinda porn . . .

Not one to be shy, I opened them tonight, and quickly started to salivate . . . . . drool.gif


"Better late than never" they always say, and this time I have to agree . . . . . thumb.gifthumb.gif


Here's a peek at the next adventure;

With a tip of the hat and a quick little flash to the NZXT Team . . . . You Guys Rock!

(maybe rock a little slow sometimes, but rock none the less, lol)


Darlene














And last but not least, a new V2 PSU, the cables come with a new NZXT white pouch:

I'm late to the party, but subbed.

P.S. Every time the mail carrier drops all this stuff off, he's like, "what the #¥$& is going on in there?"

Lol you meant the moving guy that the mail company is temporarily using for him haha

Darlene, could you show the cables that plug into those 5 position connectors on the right side of the psu?

I can when I get home from work.

It'll be the peripherals cables, satas and molexes/floppy.

Interesting question, though we all know when it comes to expensive hobbies you have to pay to play. smile.gif I keep waiting to see this thing all gull winged out. Keep up the good work. wink.gif

Here's the pic with the peripheral cables in the 5 pin jacks, they are all interchangeable.


All the 8 pin jacks are interchangeable as well, just use either an 8 pin to 6 + 2 for a GPU or a 8 pin to 4 + 4 for the mobo EPS connections.


The 24 pin is slightly unique, in that it has a small 3 pin connector in addition to the regular 24 pin connector at the PSU end, that plugs sideways beside the 24 pin connector.

I left it unplugged to show the detail.


My guess would be that it's a remote "sense" feedback line so that the PSU regulates the voltage based on the voltage measured (sensed) at the mobo connector to compensate for any Vdroop in the cabling.


Would have loved to have a king of the hill 1200W, but this 1000W is no slouch in anyone's book.


The 1200 has 4 pairs of 6 + 2 PCIe cables and jacks, while this one has 3.

Is the PSU a 1 to 1 and is easy to remove the pins
