Default Critical CX2 power supply and rotary machines?

Hey guys, first post here. I use a Critical CX-2 power supply with my coil machines and it works fantastic, however I just purchased a stealth rotary machine from worldwide tattoo and was later told it may have problems operating with my supply. anyone care to elaborate on this? Anyone out there used one of these stealths? Thanks in advance as this machine will be in tomorrow and I would like to know whether or not to plug it in.

I use a stealth on a daily basis, and have been since July. I use a Technical power supply and I dont have any issues at all. I absolutely love rotaries, and have tried 3 different types.

it wont have any problems dude. I've used a few different rotaries inc stealth and stigma machines and not had a problem with my CX2.

the EMS300 doesn't like em though

The EMS problem I think it has to do with the duty cycle.

Out of curiosity... what does the duty cycle read? Is this with the EMS300 only or the 200 as well?

I don't use one of those, but it seems like I remember someone saying it read 0 so it would shut itself down. I could be wrong though, like I said I don't use the EMS.

I know my CX2 says all sorts of crazy readings for DS, it's different every time I press the pedal, but it doesn't effect how it runs.

that was me. yeah the EMS reads everything fine up to 8.5 volts and then everything goes back to 0s.

weird...but it still works fine.
