This regulator: it is 12V and 6A or?
The Auto power sequncer and regulator from www.mini-box.com is out...
I have 5-10 units to give out for testing, please send me a message to [email protected] that contains your shipping address and current power supply.
This unit supports PW-60/PW-70 (and the A models) as well as the Morex DC-DC converters.
Of course, your feedback / test results are most appreciated...
P.S. Here is a picture: http://store1.yimg.com/I/ituner_1767_447617
The unit will be ~$39, including cables and connect hardware, but your can build it yourself as well.
I can send the PIC microcode, if needed
The link to the sequencer is bad (on the mini-box website).

* EPIA M10000/512 meg RAM, Win XP PRO, 90w OPUS, 80 gig HD
* TM-710VGT LCD, Wireless mouse, keyboard
* M-Audio Sound Card, 2 Alumapro 10" subs, 2 PPI Amps (1kW)
Hey, doesn't that mean if I have one of this with the PW-70A then I don't need an OPUS? Sorry for the newbie question but I have been despreately trying to plan my project. =D
Exactly! You've just ot plugin the sequncer modul to your psu!

from what I can tell this will only give you 60W ... even if you have the PW-70 ... i wrote mini-box to verify.
They're using the 1084 voltage regulator and that only supplies 12v at 5a... the site says you can bypass it and get up to 20a but then you don't have regulated power.
still a cheap option using this and a pw70 as opposed to an opus. i plan on using it (or something like it, i don't know if i want the shutdown controller)
Thanks guys -- I got more testers that needed.
I will try to send a sample to as many people as we can (list is big).

It should be.Originally Posted by Zadilla
However, if you discover otherwise you can always seperately power the USB devices through a USB hub.
Just get one of these for each USB hub you install:
I have two of them in my car going to 2 USB hubs.
I do not have to worry about the USB devices causing the PSU to max out.
