Do you know how much current the pump draws ?
The pumps is 12v, 60w and I reckon around 4Amps. I'm not sure abou the amps, as it doensn't got any labes on it.Do you know how much current the pump draws ?
60w / 12v = 5 amps.The pumps is 12v, 60w and I reckon around 4Amps. I'm not sure abou the amps, as it doensn't got any labes on it.
The picture says its a 12v,Hi mate, I just checked this website and I'm quite sure it's the same pump, there is some technical parameters about the pump:
You can pick up a 20Amp 12V DC Power Supply relatively inexpensively at Radio Shack. Or search electronics sites for plans on how to build one yourself.Gggrrr! I've made some tests and I think it would do great, But the problem is manly the AC/DC conversion... And also the Relays! I had a look at the original Vacuum Sealing Machine, and the AC/DC seems a bit big to be honest, so I reckon this AC/DC I'm gonna use need to be powerful(200w).
grrrr, i want to find the parts and draw this out for you but i am to tired. one main problem is the converting the power from 120 vac to 12 vdc for the compressor, and i don't know if that compressor and vacuum the way you want.
What exactly are you going to use for power? A ten amp relay will be plenty but the coil voltage is the critical need to draw a circuit for you. Are you putting a battery in your kitchen? Using a power supply? Sealing bags in your car? Operating a mobile leftover food vacuum packing business?Hi mate!
I'd like to know if you can help me with my project, the vacuum machine. I tried to find some help but no one could figure out it for me, would you help me?
I'd be glad!!!:thumbup:
Now it is critical to know the hp and amps of the motor.Hi mate!
I've just solve the pump issue, I've made some changes and I got a 110v AC motor, so I will no longer need the DC motor.
Now the issue is only about the Relays...Do you know what relays fits on this application? As I said beforehand, I just need to shut the pump off when it reaches the pre set vacuum point and if possible turns the sealer on for about 5 secs.
Have a look at the vacuum switch website:
If you have any idea, just let me know!!
