hoy mike! bibigyan mo ako ng pc4! hindi masisira to.. malakas to! hindi ko pa nasusubukan magsaksak ng heavy loads.. pero dapat hindi siya masisira kasi less nga ang kuryente na dadaan kasi 220V na eh..

bro, is the actual load (like MH) passing through the re-wired transformers that you've modified? I thought they're only for relay switch purposes.

kasi yung RK has 2 kinds of switches.. mechanical relay for plugs 1 and 4 (8A each) and semiconductor switches for plugs 2 and 3 (3A each, eto yung nakasulat mismo sa pc4) .. plugs 1 and 4 can handle more power.. wala naman akong binago sa power side nung plugs.. since mas mataas yung voltage natin dito, dapat mas maliit yung current na dumadaan sa switches at the same power consumption.. dapat.. i dont want to comment much since i dont know the entire schematic diagram of the RK.. dapat pwede pero baka may sensor silang kinabit or something..

plugs 1 and 4 should be able to supply your 2 MH easily.. but i dont know about the chiller.. meron silang binebenta na PC1, which was designed for that.. tingnan niyo sa lang sa website nila..
