Hi i have bought a spid rotator that will run on 12/24V,

I forget the exact figures but 12V it will do 360 in lets say 2 minuets 24V 1 minute therefore i would like to use a variable power supply, any recommendations please 5amp would be sufficient.

Not sure about 24v but my 2 will crank up to 18v i think.
Would think most would be the same.
Only others i have seen that might go up that high are the test type but not much amp's in them.

Thanks Alan are they variable i guess 18V is going to move it a little quicker than 12V but it needs to be variable i dont want to be moving quick in windy conditions.

If it takes less than 3 amps this might do the job: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/314146833562

Thinking out loud last time round i used PSTRotator software from memory it had a option for a slow speed maybe i could get a 24V and regulate via software.
