  • Choices to power m10000 or m12000

    To power the m10000 or m12000 board with the usual array of accessories.

    whats the better setup here? pro's and con's wise

    Casetronic C4-CT-DC150L $45 + CarNetix P1900 ~$130?

    or

    OPUS 150 $179


    also is there a downside to wiring a xenarc directly to the cig lighter power as apposed to running off of the psu? will I need a fuse or anything?

    Thanx All!

    mkay.... lets try searching the forum before posting questions that are easily answered.

    i would say stick with the opus. It is a great power supply and will survive a crank. Also i don't think you need anymore than the 90w. I have a m10000 and a lilliput with all sorts of extras and it runs fine off the 90w

    Of course you will need a fuse if its not a regulated power supply.

    Run your screen off the psu i don't have any problems

      my mistake, I'm horrible with searching. I'd rather run the screen off of the vehicles power so I wont need a long cable run to the trunk. So you say I do need a fuse if I run off of the cig wire? what fuse do you recomend?

      the opus is regulated right?

        supernoob,

        First let me say, there is NOTHING wrong with your asking a question like this. It has NOT been answered (to my knowlege) before in any forum. I wish people would help instead of criticize, especially with a username like "supernoob".(/rant)

        Secondly, I would disagree with anitmatter. Why spend an addtional $50+ for an Opus when the P1900 + Casetronic C4-CT-DC150L will provide equivalent functionality (survive engine crank, startup/shutdown controller, DLYON trigger) plus additional functionality the Opus does not have (Pulse Start, seperate =12v/+13V output for screen), especially if you buy a case with the C4-CT-DC150L already installed (Travla C137-120, C138-120, C158-120, or Morex P4-3677/88/99). This is a very reasonable solution (and question).

        ...sorry to rant, but I am believe there are more people using the "search" comment than there are newbies ansking obvious questions.

Cant beat it, cost me 52.00 delivered. I am sure you can get them in the US or from http://linitx.com/product_info.php?c...roducts_id=598
