Well looks like this idea is off the table ..... PP got back with an answer .... which oddly enough came from aquatuning which said:
"I would recommend he buys a secondary pc psu our product is not designed for an application like this."
However, this answer is surprising considering what it says on their web site.
This Phobya power adaptor adapts 230V AC from the mains to 12V DC for your PC.
This small but powerful power adaptor fills the gap for everyone who likes to modify their PC, needs an independent power supply or simply wants to independently operate computer components. And that is only a small part of what is possible with this adaptor!
The 4-Pin Molex connector allows the use of many adaptors and hence virtually everything used in a PC. And that in complete silence: The adaptor is cooled passively!
The input voltage range of 100-240V allows the adaptor not only be used in Germany and the UK (adaptor included!), but also e.g. in the USA. This will only require the suitable connection cable which is e.g. also used on monitors or printers.
Power consumption: 100-240 VAC 50/60Hz 1.5A
Output connector: Standard 4Pin Power Connector 12V DC at up to 5A draw
Output power: (5V-12V): 10-90W
Connector: 4 Pin Molex
Transformer dimensions: (H x W x L): 115 x 55 x 38mm
In any case, I'll prolly buy one anyway ..... and use just to fill the loop.....will wanna use a switch of some sort.....ie power strip
Since we talking about filling loops ..... I always wondered about this..... Ya fill a funnel, turn on pump let it drain, fill a funnel .... rinse and repeat. Why have I never seen a youtube video where...
1. Install a fill port on the system
2. Install another one, (though Id like something with a bigger flange here) on a plastic wide mouth jar neat the bottom with a valve and barb and short piece of flex tubing. Something like this
3. Connect to fill port and let drain by gravity, letting air out somewhere else till suction floods.
4. Turn on pump. With a liter+ sized jar )above is just under 1.5 liters) , this should make the process a lot easier.
In fact i wonder if putting the jug cap on a squeezing the jar (maybe even tap jar cap with air connection and small 6" hand pump ?) would be enough to fill the loop.Edited by JackNaylorPE - 10/17/13 at 9:01pm
