    hello, I hope you are well.

    i am wondering, if there are 30 x 10v motors to be powered and each can have a peak current use of 800 ma or less.

    30 x 800ma = 24000ma = aprox 24amps or less at any given time.

    ( ^ i think i am right on that : )

    i am wondering how to power all of these without blowing a fuse. maybe there are psu's that can be bought online?

    But if i had to make my own i would like the motors to be powered from one psu box. But i am slightly baffled on this as most iec (kettle) leads are rated at a maximum 13amps. so, would I have to make a special power lead to mains that can handle such high amps. ( and i wonder about the main fuse box too)

    Well as you can see i have little ideas here , so any kind of info would be great.

    thanks for ideas : )

    The motors may draw 24A at 10V and so you may need a particular connecor for those, but the PSU won't draw 24A from the mains, only 1A. (24A x 10V = 240W)
