    Hello
    I am having trouble finding a reasonable power supply (AC to DC), specifically of 24 VDC and a current range of 9 ADC. Every power supply i find has a weird plug, like a R7B, that i cannot find an adapter easily. How do you fellas find a power supply, not an adjustable one, that you can connect to your projects. Any ideas or advice, thanks!

    I am in North America.
    Hey Ramussons, i would need to wire an electrical plug for the AC (3 wires), and then wire my DC (2 wires) to my circuit, am i correct?
    I was wondering if there was something like an already of the shelf product, this link here is what i would want, it looks nice, and is light, but i just can't find a connector for the DC side! Any ideas, maybe what i am looking for just doesn't exist!

    You need to tell us what sort of connector you are looking for.

    Perhaps if i could connect it to some kind of terminal block, or it would have an adapter that would do it? I like the look of electrical quick connectors and banana connectors, but i just don't see how i could connect this to a power supply. I am new to the electrical stuff so i am quite unaware of connectors and such. I have a motor with two leads, and i want a power adapter to connect it, and does not looked jimy-rigged. Any possible connections options, maybe i am over thinking this.
    Thanks

    There are so many connection options because there are so many devices and ways to wire them that the rich selection of accessories is a good thing.

    First you need to know exactly what you have in the way of items to interconnect. I do mean exactly.

    The options thin out based on what items you are connecting and your specs., such as, outdoor, indoor, high temp, and so on.

    Get us a pic of the items and your specs (needs) of operation and we will help you make a professional choice for connecting them.

    Edit: the more details you give the better the answers become.

    Hey sorry for the few details, i really am just unsure where to start. The DC voltage i want is 24 V, and have a maximum predicted current of 10 A.
    Nonetheless, here are a few parts i think would work

    These would connect together i think?
    Or would it be easier to find and use a barrel connector like this?

    And what is the name of a breadboard that can deal with the current and voltages i plan to use?
    I hope this helps out, thanks for your help!

    You would be pushing those connectors to their limit at 9A or more. Not good practice.
    All breadboards should be able to cope with 24V, but they are mostly (all?) designed for low currents (mA) ..... not 9A.
