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

Subject: [ap-gto] Mach2 power consumption #Mach2GTO

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?
