Hello there, I’m new to this forum so I hope I am posting in the right place. We use these VHK200W-Q24-S24 a lot to regulate power to our devices, often from solar or electric and in most cases to 24 or 12 v load.
Recently I connected two different power sources to the VHK200W-Q24-S24, one from an AC-DC power supply and one from a charge controller powered by a solar array and a battery bank.
Both pushing about 12.5 to 13v but certainly different types of power sources. This seems to work well for us as it’s acting like a UPS. Am I doing something I shouldn’t or is the wide range of input on these devices makes it possible? I realize that the two sources are not sharing the load equally and that it’s not the ideal power source sharing, but I wanted to get an opinion if I am “ok” or completely out of order here.
Load is about 4amps at 24v and so far nothing is heating up, nothing is melting, and load continues to operate when the AC-DC is off or when the solar is in LVD.
