Project SG-69 : The Saga Continues: MORE POWER!!!!

One of the less-than-perfect aspects of the gate when we put it up was that each encoding chevron had it's own "wall wart" power supply, with a 6' cord. That meant at least 3 of them were hanging off the gate without support, one more source of load on the frame.

I've now finished the SG-69 ECPS.12X2, which can provide 12VACx500mA for every one of the 7 chevrons. Hurrah!

One big fat input cable, one handy-dandy lightweight 35' output cable with 7 chevron power jacks at 4' intervals
Lables? WDNNSL? Lables? WDNNSL?

Actually yes, we do. Proof that I'm truly compulsive, the label specifying the input and output characteristics
