How come you are not using the 24 volt power supply that comes with the mount? It is much more efficient than your Pyramid.

I'm wondering what other Mach2 users are experiencing with power usage with their mounts.
Using a Powerwerx watt meter, I'm seeing about 1.05 amps at 13.8V while tracking, as much as 5.15 amps while slewing. I'm powering with a Pyramid PS-15KX supply, and it gets hot. (Still indoors due to lousy weather).
These motors are drawing a lot of juice! Is that to be expected?
