I have a 12 volt wiper motor running my hangman. Can I tap into my 12 volt outdoor lighting wire to power the motor? How do I connect to the wire? Power? Ground? im retarted about wiring...
retarted about wiring eh....? na,just some spelling........LOLI have a 12 volt wiper motor running my hangman. Can I tap into my 12 volt outdoor lighting wire to power the motor? How do I connect to the wire? Power? Ground? im retarted about wiring...
NO. 600...(something) ma,milliamps, is like 0.6 ampsOk, I have a transformer in my basement which changes the 120v to 12v correct? The Transformer is a 600...something (need to go down and look) milliamp? So if I disconnect all the lights that run off the transformer (wont need them on Halloween) will it run the wiper motor? How bout 2 of them?
Go basic with me baby!!! Give me a yes or no and how likely am I to blow the house up.
As long as you haven't mixed the old shoe,ointment & chex mix togehter yet ! (& i can p/u that restraining order while i'm there......)Ill be here about 5:00 is that good for you? Ill have cheese dip waiting...
As for the power supplies looks,It doesn't matter, all you need is to use the YELLOW wire (for pos12v) & any one of the black (neg)wires on the harnessOkeeey, well, I have now tried two computer power supplies with no luck either. Neither one of them look like the power supplies on Scary Terrys page. One is a Compaq 200W and the other is an No-Name brand which is even farther from the picture that Terry posted.
Anywho...here are the specs of my Transformer running my outdoor lights:
120V AC 60 hz 5.3 Amps
12v 14v AC Dual 300watts
Let me know if this will power one or all of my wiper motors or if I can light up half of New York with it...
wow i'm learning alot tonight.Transformer= AC 115/120,from a higher voltage/watts to lower AC same voltage/watts type
Inverter= inverts 12V to 115 AC (so you can use that blender on the camping trip..... )
Converter=converts AC 115/120 to DC 12V (for wiper motor props )
Convertable= Vehicle with a roof/top that goes down
Pervertable= passanger goes down instead of the top :googly:
The wires may not be in the same position,but the colors are standard. The green to common short out should do it however you may have to connect 1 or items (fans)on the power lines to create a load for you to get power out......The problem with the power supplys are they dont seem to turn on. I know you have to use a jumper somewhere but...where? The colors dont match the wires on Terrys page. The colors are all there but not in the same position. And the jumper problem...what do I use as a jumper?
I took a small piece of wire, bent it into a horseshoe and went from the "green" wire to "black" wire to jump it with no luck. I expected the fan to come on or something...nope WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING WRONG???
Can someone just come set up my entire haunt for me..im burned tonight...
Yellow = +12v positive, Black (common) -12v negativeOk, Green (power up) to ground, Shorts it out to turn it on. Power wire to yellow, +12v Black wire to common (ground) = spinning wiper motor?
How do I put load on it? Will the wiper motor be enough? Does the jumper just need to stick into each of the holes?
Do toilets flush counterclockwise on the other side of the planet?
Can I just cut those wires and twist them together?
Thanks again for your help DL...
