Power supply question

I have an eikon ems400 . it gets the job done but it's quirky. At least mine is. The buttons are a pain, sometimes they don't work or you have to push them slowly. If you hold your finger on the buttons the volts cycle too quickly and I tend to use a lot of different machines and also build them, so I'm always tweaking things.
Maybe someone could recommend a quality supply.
I want something with a turn dial and a digital read out that at least displays voltage and cps. Price isn't an issue. And I don't want another eikon. Any help would be appreciated. I'm not lazy, I'm doing my research but it's nice to get unbiased opinions. Thanks much...danzy

Just my opinion.. CRITICAL! it is State of the art electronics.. additionally it can be bagged for sanitary issues..

Or if money is a problem the Chinese Hurricane 3 again it can be bagged for sanitary issues...

I have several power supplies.. a few I made.. See YouTube Channel Tattoo Lan & undergrounddemagraphix, both have videos on this. A base power supply. However it shows you how it works. Building one is a great educational experience.

I have regular just voltage digital as well as { FT/STL, DUTY, HERTZ/CPS, VOLTS, }

You can tattoo with a base power supply, & use a spring tension gauge for rear spring & or that perfect B flat humm. The armature bar ghosting..Or a combination of all or some of the previous..

A Digital Power Supply is great! Keep a journal on the settings you like with each machine.. additionally you can have a conversation with another artist about your machine 100 Hertz/CPS , 49%, Duty, & a FT/STL of 0 & everyone would know you are taking about a Color Packer, without even seeing the machine or hearing it run!
A cool feature!

Take Care, Bill Kearney :-)
