    Any converters will have their output mentioned as a voltage level and also current like 24V @ 1A.How can we specifically say this?Does this no depend on the load resistance?Is this mentioned for full load condition?If thats the case,then what and how can "full load condition" be defined?Am not really clear about these concepts here..Thanks in advance


    Thanks!:)

    Oh my, fond memories of Ratch. I hope this doesn't turn into a megathread.

    Back to the OP: Can you provide a link to the converter you are concerned about? I think it is just a question of understanding what the ratings mean, and having a specific example to discuss will avoid the sort of endless dialog of that thread given by Jony130.

    I recall him, too. Fear not.

    To the OP, that rating should be of the full load condition. The output will be 24 volts up to a current load of 1 amp. With more current than one amp drawn, the voltage will diminish.

    Well depending on the protections built into the power supply, over 1a will either shut her down, droop on voltage, or smoke.

    who are the heck is Ratch :confused:
    Just curious.

    Same as the rest,

    Back to the OP, It all depends on how well the supply is designed, we have to see it at least to comment
