Computer ATX Power Supply to 12V 12 Amp

ATX power supplies are easy to convert to a 12 volt supply for a radio.  ATX supplies typically provide 10 to 12 Amps output current.

To convert the supply take several of the yellow wires (12 Volt lines) and tie them together use at least 3 wires, more if desired.

Take at least 3 black wires (ground) and tie them together.  Consider using a power pole for the 12V and ground line

Take 1 black and the green wire and tie that pair together and tape them off.  Green is the switch wire.

Finally trim off the other wires and safely tape them off.

Now you have a small 12V 10-12 amp switching power supply for you radio equipment.
