Review of Lab Bench DC Power Supply
When working on embedded projects you are going to need a good DC power supply on your bench to test your designs. I recently got an Eventek KPS305D Adjustable Switching Regulated Power Supply online and set it up and started using it and I’ve been pretty happy with it so far!
It is a 0-30V 0-5A adjustable power supply that should cover all your test needs. I wanted something that could go up to 24V DC for some industrial control applications I am working on but you could probably get something cheaper that just goes up to 12V.
Unpacking, setting up, and quick testing:
This is not a high end power supply but will certainly work for the bench testing that I need to do. There are several good threads out there on cheap variable powers supplies and some of the issues to look out for (mostly heat dissipation) but for 60 USD I think its still a good value.
