Opus DC-DC 90W 150W Pricing Dimensions Info
It's way too hard to find actual info on the Opus DC-DC Power Supplies (pricing, dimensions, etc.) around here. Searches pull up several posts, but most people are just told to talk to Kris. I'm sure he's great and all, but why bug him with simple stuff? Let's compile some data in this thread and make it sticky.

- There are several ways to hook an Opus up to AC power (for testing indoors, moving between car and house, etc). One is to buy a standard ATX power supply and wire the output of the 12V rail to the input of the Opus. Another is to buy a simpler AC-DC power supply (usually intended for ham radio equipment) that supplies the current (A) and voltage (V) listed in max power consumption above.
- Epia M boards have slightly different power requirements (why? timing?). Make sure to specify that you want a power supply compatible with them.
- There appears to have been a bad batch of these power supplies that have fried the motherboards of several people. Resolution pending.
I've marked things I don't know yet in red. If you can clear any of this up or correct anything that's wrong...post!
