I am needing to power a 24vdc gate motor, it is rated for 24vdc 1A on battery power and 24vdc 4.5A on mains power, i have a laptop charger(AC Adapter) that does 220vac to 24vac and 4.5A but i need the output in VDC. The motor is rated for 3000lbs load and will only be moving a 120lbs load as it is re-purposed for a mixer.
my answer as far as i have searched is a bridge rectifier circuit, i want to use 4x 1N4007F diodes, but i need to know what the voltage drop will be across the circuit so that i can add the right capacitor the maintain the voltage generally in the 24vdc range... I understand it is not ideal but i do need a workable solution for the time being.
South africa does not have surplus electronic supply stores and importing is not an option at the moment.
in short i need to convert 24VAC to 24 VDC with max A of 4.5
