PC power supply
Here's a slight variation on using a PC power supply for bench testing HHO generators.

PC PSU on steroids.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbNiP14RXhY

PSU works well. Generator and other parts are due for re-cycling yet again.

Generator is 5N1, crappy grade of stainless steel, hence state of electrolyte, and staining of the bubbler/reservoir acrylic.

PSU can supply 30A per outlet, but is presently restricted to 20A due to ammeter/shunt configuration.
Uses PWM unit design as in thread in files section. Enclosed in DVD reader case.


As the video says, all 100% re-cycled parts (Junk box). Even the decal for the PWM is printed on 100% re-cycled paper.

Proof that HHO generator building and testing doesn't need to be an expensive undertaking.

RE: PC power supply
This site gives a new slant on using PC power supplies for high power outputs.

http://www.antennex.com/preview/archive3/powers.htm

Note this site recommends using multiple PC PSU (3), with the 5V outputs set in series, to provide 15V. The output current at this voltage depends on the current rating of a single PSU for the 5V supply, or of the lowest rated PSU if these are not identical in type.


Read the instructions on the web site carefully.

RE: PC power supply
here is a good bench test 12V power supply that will give you up to 25amp

http://www.dc-hybrids.com/12V-power-supp...v%20ps.htm

Or if you are using a 120V cell

I've built a few of these and they work wonderfully. Absolutely bullet proof, too.

Hmmmmmmmmmm!
DC- Hybrids. AKA march labs and also hybridconversions.com. How many sites do you guys need? Beware of this outfit. The 12V power supply is just a PC supply you can buy on e-bay for $5 and fitted with a 75 cent rectifier.The mains power cable will melt around 20 amps and you won't get a refund. They seem to have pulled the 120 volt DC supply from the site which again was a typical e-bay item,2500 watt inverter fitted with 75 cent rectifier,e-bay price $125 or less,march labs price,$750. Supernova cell@ $999 and 25 LPM,bullshit. Be warned,these guys are crooks and won't refund a penny.

But some how we have a %100 feedback on ebay (dchybridscom) how would crooks that wont refund a penny manage that. If you could read the power supply is rated at a max of 20 amps. You did not purchase it from us. If you want to run it at higher amps you can buy a big gauge cable for a few $. Did you buy a supernova cell?

You are correct.I did not purchase it from dchybridscom,I bought it from march labs.Are you going to tell me that you are not the same company?My name is Dave Savage,look it up on your computer and see what I purchased from you.I made several calls to march labs complaining about the unit but never saw any money back.And no,I didn't buy a supernova cell.When I called to discuss it and it seemed that I knew what I was talking about I was told to wait for a newer version which was coming out. Anyone with a scrap of knowledge will know a 2500 watt inverter( or as you put it-dc power supply) is incapable of producing enough power to generate 25LPM of HHO from that junk supernova.I know some very unhappy people on other forums who were taken in by you guys and you are still at it.

That's absolutely brilliant. Vehicles all over the world which think for themselves.
Do they think in different languages according to country?

Who needs humans?

Wait! Didn't they do a film based on this some time back? Transformers?

Isn't AI wonderful.

I am of the opinion that 5V @ 30A would be ideal power supply for HHO generators. Less volts means less friction(Heat) and more amps means more gas production(Current). What says the forum?
