    Hi,

    Were building a power supply at our office to eventually power 400 set top boxes (cable tv). Our company provides unique firmware to different STBs. Anyway, I'm trying to find a place where I can purchase large power supplies that can power a bunch of these boxes. Each box takes 15 v dc 1amp. If I could find a ps that did 15v / 20 amps that I would purchase 20 of them.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    That's a hefty supply.

    Omron make 300W 15V units such as the S8VM switch mode type.

    I saw one advertised for AUD$800 new. That's $16,000 for 20 units if you could source them. Probably cheaper elsewhere than in the antipodes.
