    Free inverter

    Can anyone give me the info for the Xenarc inverter?






    Tim,
    I will need additional info. on the CCFL tube. For a guess, I would suggest reviewing our D12M50J data sheet on our web page. I will need the # of tubes (1 or 2), output current (5ma?), run and strike voltage, and display tube connector.

    If you can find this data, you can review the D series data sheets on the web. (M in the middle denotes the 8M, single tube inverter)

    You can contact Pat for a sample if you see one that fits, or let me know if you have any questions. Regards, Ron Evancho - ERG Reg. Sales & Mktg. Mgr. - Southern U.S. Ph# 919-303-7771 CP# 919-244-4081 [email protected] www.ergpower.com

    Guys, please try not to pester ERG for free inverters. We maybe using this place for inverters and we would appreciate people not telling them what we are doing or annoying them by requesting free stuff.

    oh for **** sake. Some people really **** me off!

    THE FREE INVERTER IS NOT SUITABLE FOR US. I DO NOT HAVE A FREE INVERTER BECAUSE I HAVE NO USE FOR IT.

    I don't know what kind of quanitities we are required to order from ERG but i am hoping they will give us a break if they normally only supply companies so i don't want them getting harrassed by a few thousand mp3car members who see the words FREE INVERTER and think 'oooo something free I must get it'. If you want to go ahead and ask then i have no problem. I already helped you out with regards to it but if you read my *****ing post you will see i am addressing everyone when i ask people not to pester them. If they gets lots ot requests of people mentioning us then they might get ****ed with us.

    As I am sure said before, you need to know the exact specs of the CCFL in the LCD to get the right inverter or you will either not have enough power or have too much and drastically shorted the CCFLs life. If you have these details then fine, if not maybe ERG will be able to advise you based on the measurements of yourCCFL.

    Sometimes i wonder why I even bother trying to help people on this forum when i get stupid assed remarks like your one above!

    oh and another thing - yeah free invereter is ok for me and I would be using it to develop the brighter screens and thus would be putting an order in if ti was suitable.

    I, sorry, WE have no problem with your getting a free inverter from them, in fact i hope it works out ok as it wills ave you some money, but is it too much to ask for you to at least check the inverter is suitable before posting information on where and who to contact on a public forum where hundreds of people might then request free inverters just in case theirs blows? I seem to rememeber we helped you out in your other thread and this is the thanks we get.

    Hey, that is a local phone call for me. You think he is in right now? Maybe I will take a 30min drive over to Apex and go see him in person. FREE FREE FREE.

    Edit: I would not be to upset they are offering free samples themselves - http://www.ergpower.com/pub/contact_inv.asp

    Ron was not in the office, it went to his voicemail. I left a message telling him not to give any free samples to mp3car.com members expect for Scouse Monkey. Problem is all settled.

    I dont want the free one. thay are nto powerful enough for what we need.

    Greenman - i just thought....there are going to be lots of Xenarc inverters lying around when people start upgrading thier LCDs. (thats if you don't want to upgrade yourself). If the free one is not right but works you could get awayw ith using it for a while and then get a proper one when you can to prevent your CCFL dying prematurely.

    I really was not trying to be a jerk about it.

    But I don't see the problem in asking for something they offer for free, as long as it might work. That is like saying "oh noes don't take the free samples from the ice cream store, they might not even let us in the store anymore!"

    If they're offering the free samples that tells me that the free samples are not a problem for them from a cost point of view.
