Power supply, Inverter and shutdown controller or DC-DC PSU?
Alright, so, by definition i'm a newb to carputers. I've searched around, and came up with a lot of answers, but i'm still a bit confused with the use of DC-DC psu's, shut down controller and PSU's. To my understanding, DC-DC power supplys are essentially the same things as normal computer power supplies, with the exception of needing an inverter (and also the whole alternating current thing, but yeah...). Also, they have the ability to prevent pc shutdown when cranking the motor? Startup and shutdown controllers are just installed inline to the psu, ATX mobo power jumper connections, and small other connections, which basically just control the starting up and shutting down of the carputer based on conditions such as how long the motor has been off, etc. But do shutdown controllers also prevent pc shutdown during crank? A tad confused...N e how, thanks a lot to anyone and everyone that responds. Have a day that's nice!
