Hi, just wondered if anyone had one of these power supplies? Got mine today but it had no manual worked out by trial and error how to get most of the functions working except how to get it to power my machines....Foot pedal is bringing it out of hibernate when I press it but not through to the machine. Anyone know if I need to do some strange button pressing ritual to get it working?

Hi I had one, strange thing put clip cord in and gun started running on its own, no matter how many times i pressed the foot pedal would not switch the gun off.:icon_rolleyes:

Tried 3+ foot pedals & clip cords no joy. Ended up back in the box and stuffed in the bottom draw.:icon_redface:

Hope you resolve your issue but i think there very temperamental.

I now run a Eikon EMS300 really pleased with it.:icon_cheesygrin:

Thanks Daz, I know the supply has a feature that lets you keep your machines running without your foot on the pedal - tap on tap off, but without a manual to tell you how to set that feature up its pretty crap, especially as the power supply stays on for 30 mins before auto turn-off... I have a feeling I may end up sending mine back too which is a shame as it has a lot of cool features to it

Turned out mine was faulty, I got in touch with the supplier andthey sent out a new one free of charge and let me keep the faulty one for spares :) It works great and has some great functions too.

I see on Amazon that they actually have an HP5 wireless model now. Wonder how these work? Probably need lots of batteries!

I think that I will stick with my tried and true HP2. works great and has settings for multiple machines. Can't go wrong with the price either.
