MCS and WCS series power supply outputs.

Issue

Are the MCS/WCS power supply outputs regulated or lineal?

Product Line

Pelco Transmission & Power

Environment

MCS series Indoor power supplies (MCS4-2, MCS4-2B, MCS16-20, MCS16-20B)

WCS series Outdoor power supplies (WCS1-4, WCS4-20, WCS4-20B)

Cause

Individual Spec Sheets have no reference to output regulation versus lineal based input-to-output comparison.

Resolution

With the fact that the MCS and WCS series power supplies being nothing more than a tapped transformer, the outputs are NOT regulated, they are more lineal based outputs. This means that whatever power comes in directly affects the output level of power to a certain degree.
