Someone mentioned using a 110V / 24V step-down. How big are these and how
expensive are they?
Thanks,
Heath

    You need to know the size of the 110 V load. For example, if the load is 1
    amp at 110V, you would need a 110V x 1 amp =110 watt transformer. I bet you
    could find something cheap, ($10), by checking places like Jameco, Marlin P.
    Jones, MECI, etc. The size depends on wattage.

    Good luck,

    I have some toroidal transformers. Very high quality, made for medical app.
    Good for 24 volts at 3 amps or about 80 watts. good for 5 amps for short time.
    Ideal for any situation that needs small size or good safe isolation.
    The 24 volts is center tapped if you need 12 volts you can get 12 volts at 6
    amps.
    Any way I don't have many left but anyone that wants one or more can email me
    off group at
