  • Xenarc - USB Power cable?

    For powering the Xenarc, I am going to fabricate a USB power cable, to run from the Opus (located in the back) to the front.

    For the USB power cable, I am going to do the following:
    • Take USB cables from old USB LAN adapters
    • Splice cables together to get correct length
    • Create a PCB or similar to connect power cable to custom Power USB port
    • Connect custom USB power port to Opus 12v & ground

    Seems like it will work just fine. Anyone got any inputs?

    What's wrong with a speaker wire feeding the GND and PWR?

      Wouldn't it be easier to just extend a molex connector?
      Although, I wonder if you'd be able to splice into the USB used to connect the touchscreen....

        I want a way to plug/unplug the power line from the computer.

          Yea maybe, but like i just posted, i want to plug/unplug it from the computer. I am basically using the USB end as the lug: and the other end splice into the chopped off cigarette adapter
