    Anyone using Amtrade DC-DC convertor?

    I was checking out some ATX DC-DC convertors for a friend after he flipped @ Keypower's price for their 250W convertor and came across Amtrade, Inc, out of California. They list model "CP-150DD" as a 150W DC-DC convertor with an input of 12/24/-48 VDC, however they give no operating voltage ranges.
    Here's the link: http://www.amtrade.com/pc_power/swit...upplies.htm#14

    I couldn't reach anyone yesterday and I'll try again today. So, anyone use one of these or know anything more about this puppy, like voltage range, price, etc.? Thanks.

    Well, I figured I'll post this to save everyone time and effort. Forget Amtrade. I finally got a hold of someone and they stated the 12V 150W ATX DC-DC convertor is still in the design stages and they have no clue when their engineers will complete fabrication of the circuit. So, this means they don't have the circuit completed yet and testing still has to happen. According to who I spoke to it's gonna be at least a couple of months before it's ready for sale.

    well, if i were you i would keep a link to their page in your bookmarks... if they end up putting this on the market, it would be great to have some options for the people that want to buy a dc-dc. there aren't that many companies out there that have cheap (err, reasonable) prices on dc-dc power supplies. perhaps this will work out well for people starting projects in the future!!

    Already done. You mentioned other players in the DC-DC market, besides Keypower who else do you know, preferably in the US? A friend of mine had his Keypower unit just stop working one day. He had to send it to their Cali site for warranty work and it took three weeks altogether. That's too much down-time, IMO, and we've since found out even if you ship overnight they still take on the average a week to fix your item. So anyone else that's making them, they sure aren't easy to find.

    Just to give you guys a heads up about Amtrade. I tried to get that same power supply about 2 years ago and the asian girl on the other end of the phone told me next month, next month..... Don't hold your breath!
