Hi have this buck converter : Step Down Buck 9A 300W Converter 5-40V To 1.2-35V Power Module XL4016
I've done my research, read some posts and articles but I'm still quite confused, some say a constant current supply "constantly push" the set current, but some say a constant current supply alerts you only when you're about to reach the set current and is current limiting.
Let say my load uses like 1A, and I set my XL4016 Step Down Buck Power Module current pot to 5A.
- Will my load receive 5A constantly or will the current limiting feature kick in once my load reaches 5A?
Edit: I'm gonna be using the XL4016 Buck Power Module to power some motors for my project, and im gonna buy like 1 or 2 converters for a bunch of 5v sensors and loads, etc. maybe a linear regulator one. But for the 12V ones, im thinking of my XL4016. My input is around 18-14V, i want it to constantly be at 12V, and 5V.
thanks a lot.
