    I'm interested as well. This would work to power and Eden wouldn't it?

    does ITX use a standard ATX power supply plug on the motherboard? If so, could this power supply be used to power a shuttle FV24?

    Thumbs up

    Finally got around to calling them.

    They will give a discount of 10% for orders of about 10+, we could probably get them to discount even if we order only 7-8. Shipping rates info here.

    What it is:

    An adapter to power the Morex mini-ITX case directly from the car, without going through an inverter. This adapter replaces the cases external AC-DC converter.

    RE: the question about the Shuttle board - Since the mini-ITX board uses a standard ATX supply, this power supply should work with other ATX boards, BUT, I do not know about the current requirements for other ATX supplied boards, so this should be checked.

    From what I understand, the case maker does not sell the internal DC-DC ATX supply separately, you would have to buy the case.

    For those that are interested, please send a PM to me soon so I can gauge interest. I'll call and set up a system with a sales rep. at the company and everyone can call them directly to order.

    (For my system, I am going to be using a custom supply made by them in which one adapter will have two outlets, one for the mini-ITX and one for the LCD - 12 Volts 8 Amps total - still don't know the price)

    80-90 bucks seems steep for a 12V 5amp regulator. I bet if we could get one and gut it out the parts would be less than 30 dollars.

    It may be steep, but I don't have the expertise to build one myself. And, since it's going into an expensive, new truck, I'd rather not take any chances with the wiring in the truck.

    I'm sure there are a few others like me here.

    Once I get one, I'll try and post some info here.

    Mehul...

    I'm definitely interested - this may be a dumb question, but the 12V 8A unit you'd be ordering would be fine if just used with the Morex case/power board, correct?

    My system will only have a 20x2 VFD in the dash, so I could probably use that supply for that as well...it'll be a Matrix Orbital wide voltage version (can use 12V), and I'm sure its current draw is WAY less than 3A.

    Once you get a definite price, let me know. I will PM you too to make it all official.

    I'm not getting the 12V 8 Amp unit. They said they would have a problem with heat dispersion if they built it like I wanted it. I'm just getting 2 of the 12V 5a, one for the LCD and one for the PC

    Now we only need to get orders for about 8 more.

    What are the input voltage requirements? If it is 11 volts min. (like I think it is), then we could have problems. I have experience with inverters, and they are very fussy when the voltage dips below 11 volts, which is quite often in a vehicle. The inverter will beep and/or shut down. I'd be sold on this unit if the input voltage were something like 9-16 volts. I realize this is not an inverter, but a dc-dc converter. Nonetheless, I have my concerns about it.

    mrandery,

    If you are purchasing 2 of these psu for $160ish, why not just get a single OPUS automotive ATX power supply?

    I guess I dont understand all your variables.
