so you can run your native 220vac heater. Just thought you ought to know.
whoops, forgot the application runs oh AC
still, thats be a cool setup if you could be bothered lol. i was thinking in terms of dc
, just a simple cap being charged off an isolated rectifier.... oh well lol.
Allistah: sounds like a great system, but just to clarify when you say Fluval E series are you refering to Fluval Elite or Fluval Tronic Electronic systems?
