ELECTROPLATING POWER SUPPLIES - HCS3600AHR, HCS3602AHR and HCS3604AHR

The HCS-3600AHR series replaces the SPS5600 series used for electroplating or in the electrochemical or metal finishing industry (including electrocleaning, electropolishing and electromarking). These special power supplies or rectifiers can be used for Industrial or Scientific purposes and have a 6 digit Amp Hour Meter and reverse polarity switch with OFF position. Three models are available; HCS-3600AHR: 1-16V, 0-60A unit, HCS-3602AHR: 1-32V 0-30A unit and the HCS-3604AHR: 1-60V 0-15A unit. On all models, both the Voltage and the Current limits can be set. Click here for more information. These power supplies are used for brush-plating (or selective or swab-plating), portable electro-plating and electro-chemical metalizing. For Anodising and Plating Kits for bronze, cadium, chromium, cobalt, copper, gold, lead, nickel, silver and tin... see www.dalic.com.au For video showing brushplating - click here and "The Art of Brush Plating" - click here. Applications include... aerospace, aircraft, manufacturing, marine, military, power, railway and transport industries and many others! Our unit was designed for use by the Australian Aircraft Maintenance industry. CASESTUDY - Brush Plating for the 21st Century (a Dalic feature article) - click here.


Power Supply operational tips: 1. Carefully check the voltage of your appliance before connecting and DO NOT switch on until you have checked the following: (a) Check current requirement (the power supply should always have more current output than the device requires). (b) check the connection required (e.g. the plug type) and (c) the polarity. i.e. positive or negative connections. 2. With the high-current HCS, SPA, SPS and SSP power supplies we have been advised that, if drawing more than 10 Amps continuously, you should ensure that proper lugs are used and the terminals are tightened securely. If operating continuously at high current we recommend using the HCS3600 or SPS9600 60A supply which have large or gold-plated terminals at the rear and remote sensing that compensations for the voltage drop in cables! 3. All Manson switch-mode power supplies have proven to be very reliable and NONE have been returned faulty under warranty in the last 10 years. All come with 12 months warranty. Manson engineers say that the biggest problem they have with a power supply failing is with people trying to charge batteries and connecting them with reverse polarity! Please TAKE CARE and ask us for instructions. 4. The SPS8400 and SPS9400 have an internal variable resistor that can be adjusted for a fixed output between 11 and 16 Volts (factory set to 13.8V). Please ask for further information and ensure that only qualified personnel are allowed to open these power supplies (extremely dangerous voltages inside). 5. All power supplies can now be used in series for higher voltage (the terminals are floating or isolated) provided that an external diode is used to protect the supply from reverse voltages! NOTE old versions of the SPS9400 were negative earthed! 6. Another application for the SPA8330 power supply is to replace a 12V car battery when recharging lithium-ion or polymer battery packs and NiMH battery packs as these chargers require high current. Obviously up to ten (more with the HCS3600 or SPS9600) such chargers could be connected to the one supply. Take note, model car, aeroplane or helicopter enthusiasts and clubs! 7. The SPS9620 power supply provides 13.8V at 120A and is ideal for high-power car audio demonstrations and showroom cars - as recommended by Mark Richards of Jaguar Land Rover Australia.

Manson reliability: All Manson power supplies come with a 12 months warranty on parts and labour. They have proven to be extremely reliable units as the last customer's warranty claim occurred 10 years ago! Manson are a Hong Kong based company that oversees manufacturing in their Dong Guan factory in China. They are well constructed and conform to international standards of construction and safety. Manson are an ISO9001 certified manufacturer with research facility. They also have QC080000 or "Green Manufacturing" Certification and have implemented a Hazardous Substance Process Management (HSPM) system. In addition Manson Engineering now recycle power from "burn-in" tests back to the mains, reducing waste heat and the air-conditioning bill! For the "Company Responsibility Statement" - click here.
