I assume you're using the HBB15 (1.5 amps a side) -- this is what I've got
too, though I did mount it on a MOTM 900 panel. Have you checked how much
current you're drawing? I'd like to know. I'm not sure how close to the max
I'd like to go, but I've only got less than 20 modules running off it so far.
It seems like the HAA 15 (0.8 amps a side) that Paul ships with the 900 can
supply more modules than I first thought.
