Sorry Quench, I didn't see your response until today. You must have posted on the weekend my LAN router crashed and I didn't have internet.
Yes, big mistake again - when will I learn. About a year ago I bought some Arduino stuff from Aliexpress. Then next day someone used my credit card to buy $1700.00 at Neiman Marcus in China. This time I bought a gift card to make my purchases. This worked fine except after the sale went through the seller of the RD6006 step down power module told me I need to pay $11.00 more to cover increased shipping cost. I refused to pay the additional and told them to cancel the order. A few days later they said it shipped and gave me a tracking number. I tracked it for several weeks and it was delivered to Connecticut - I'm in Illinois. After another week I finally got a refund. They had my money for 5 weeks. Next I bought another module from China except I went through E-bay. It's been over 7 weeks since I started this project and I still don't have the main part.
Your links to the items are all correct.
I'm trying to build a big power supply around that RD6006. 60 volts DC - 6 amps - 360 Watts.
I could have used the metal case but it had too many things I didn't like - It's 12 inches deep (my shelf in only 10 inches) - The power switch for the power supply is located on the back (it should be on the front) - There is no indication that the supply is on. To remedy all this I built my own case.
The switching power supply has an adjustable output of over 60 volts DC. The small buck converter has an input range of 6 to 60 volts. (I'm using this to drive the fan and the pilot light). At present I have the switching supply at 57.5 volts and the buck converter output at 11.9 volts. Everything seems to work fine.
I'd like to operate the switching supply to it's full 60+ volts but I'm concerned I'll blow up the buck converter. The converter was cheap but the ship time was 4 weeks (I should have bought two).
Here's some photos of where I am so far:
