  • Works fine - but one problem...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Very handy to have, I make edge-lit signs using LED strips and most of these run off of 12v DC.

    Cons:

    I cannot sell these to my customers - because they are illegal in both Australia and new Zealand!
    Both countries now have a regulation that says the Live and Neutral pins must be insulated for a certain length (so that if the unit pulled out a bit from the socket, no live connections are showing)

    OtherThoughts:

    I'd love to be able to sell these to my customers along with the edge-lit signs I make for them - but until the units are to be compliant to our regulations I cannot run the risk.

    Bottomline:

    A nice product, price is cheap compared to locally bought equivalents. But it is illegal for me to on-sell them to my customers - and I'd hate for a young child to be killed by poking around behind the PSU with a knife or something metallic.

    I use them for testing, but customers are told to buy there own (compliant) version from local suppliers.
