  • Power: Travla C134 and ITPS from cartft.com

    I am currently looking at getting the above PC and kit from cartft.com

    I noticed on their site that when you do the system builder, you can only choose either:

    ( ) 98.40 EUR DC/DC Converter for Epia ITX [info]
    ( * ) 45.00 EUR ITPS-Auto Power Sequencer and Dropout Regulator [info]

    Do I not need to purchase a separate OPUS70W or OPUS150W?

    Will I be able to connect this directly up to my car battery?

    I am looking to put this in an Amigo, so any help and advise would be lovely!

    Bump!

    Anyone know if I will need power inverter as well as the ITPS?

      No Opus needed with ITPS + PW series power supply (or whatever comes with the Travla)

        Cheers for the pointer

        Will I have problems with the 'crank' when I start my car up? I am only wondering because you hear about it on this forum, will I have to do anything with capacitors or the like!

        From the cartft.com website, it looks like you can order everything from there and just plugin and go.

        Have I missed anything?

        I so wanna get it this month, I just needed to know if I'll need anything else.

        I was gonna add a 30A fuse to the power, any other suggestions?

          Yes, probably. ITPS contains a linear regulator which also has the side effect of throttling your current to 5A.

          You can try, but it's not a guaranteed solution. Switching the ITPS and the Travla power supply for an Opus is likely to be more effective.

          Not apart from the Opus.

            Well That's Cleared Some Issues

            I'm like an amputee with the horn.... I can't wait to get my grubby mits on this gear.

            Supposed to be building my gf a pvr too... all this and run a company?! I need to move to jupiter where they have more hours in the day

            Anyone know how much it'll cost to get an Opus 150 shipped to the UK (assuming I'll need that over the smaller on... whats the difference)... this is on the cartft.com site, is this the same as the opus:

            If I become any more of a newbie, I'll be crawling back up inside my mum

                Cheers Rob!

                I've just been on the phone to them.

                Their prices seem pretty fair.

                I'll go and start another thread now
