The unit requires 19vDC.
Look for a DC-DC PSU that outputs 19vDC.
i just bought one of these babies
i got this because of the space issues and it fits perfecty where i need it to.
but i completely forgot about the power supply.
turn on and shut down...
it comes with an ac adapter for wall outlet.
i looked through here but could not find what im looking for
how do i go about managing the power for this unit?
sorry i meant shutdown startup with the car.
i dont fully understand how that works, i tried to read but still dont.
The Carnetix units have a startup/shutdown controller.
It has a wire that is on an ignition-controlled power line. When that line goes hot (because you turned the key to the ON position), that tells the PSU to send a pulse to the motherboard, which is the equivalent of pressing the power button.
The same thing happens when you turn the ignition off.
oh ok, gots it.
i thought it just shuts it down hard with no saving of anything lol.
i think this one the button is hardwired
on a sidenote, its fn amazing how much power these new pcs pack in such a small enclosure.
my first pc back in 99 was P2 400mhz with whooping 64mb of ram and 4mb video card, and the whole 20 gigs of hard drive i was like daaaam all that empty space i dont think i ever fill it up, and then i started downloading garbage off the internets.
now my HTC HD2 has about 3 4 times power and space of that first PC.
