Max Ampere Power Supply
please help me,
how much ampere can I use on Duet Wifi?
What kind of power supply do you use?
and how much amperes can I use for a hotplate?
apologize for these questions, but I can not find any exact answers.
i have at the moment this Power Supply "DPS-600PB B", but not yet connected!

As long as the PSU is powerful enough to feed what is connected, it won't matter how big you go. You can only use what you need. Oversizing is usually a good thing so you are not running near max power all the time.

Bed is around 18A max, hotend around 5-7A max
Motors can run at upto 2.8A max each.
24v obviously helps, as it reduces the current needed to achieve the same power.
So fully maxed out your looking at 800w PSU, in reality most are using 300-500w PSU, or use mains 110v-240v for bed and only 150W psu for hotend and motors.
okey, i think the power supply is ok –> DPS-600PB B
The Datasheet is:
I want to operate with a power supply everything.
That power supply looks good at 12V. Depending on your printer design you may get better results using a 24V power supply. See
ok thanks at all
