What's happening with your new PS? I have an Epia M10000, Xenarc, Audigy, XMpcr that I need power for. Can you give us an update?
Thanks for the great response! We've got plenty of beta candidates now.
It's in beta testing now. I hope to make final tweaks over the next couple of weeks and will be in limited production in late May/early June. Thanks for asking.
Why only 60w?
I do have an opus 90w and would like to upgrade.
How about something like 200w? A lot of us run a whole bunch of power hungry mouths to feed and could benifit from a high power PSU. That way we can get the P4 systems that we want. Right now i feel kinda stuck with the VIA EPAI M10000 becasue of its low power consumption

Id love to buy it or test it, only prob is im in the UK
Yes, powering multiple system components can be confusing. I will have detailed documentation that explains the different connection scenarios as well as support forum. The unit has a "delayed on" signal that feeds the remote turn-on input to an audio power amplifier or head unit. It turns your audio amp on 3 seconds after the CarPC is powered. This helps remove the "thump" in the speakers.
This unit is really targeted for us poor Casetronics C134 users that don't have a good way of connecting a large-cabled PSU like to Opus into our tiny little system. The C134 only consumes about 3.5Amps max (with HDD and CD/DVD). The 60Watts (5Amps @ 12V) from this unit gives you enough juice to power your LCD screen and several USB devices with room to spare. Bigger units will come in the future.
Thanks for the offer to beta test, but I already have a beta tester in the UK. I'll let you know how it goes. You're certainly welcome to buy one in the future.
Why do you need beta testers for a power supply? Thats not a good approach for engineering a new power supply, too many things could happen.
If the powersupply fails to regulate, who's going to replace the burned up motherboard?
Dont get me wrong, I am not putting you down for producing a new product, I'm just concerned on what might happen.
Having beta testers for software is great,
but beta testers for hardware is very risky!

You raise valid points. However, I assure you the unit has been through rigorous in-house testing and is very much "production-ready". I just want others to look at it with "new eyes" before we release it for production. In fact, there *is* software in the unit (shutdown controller) which is being tested as part of the beta program.
MIKEH....thank you so much for going with this...i am tired of trying to find a way to survive a crank, have my morex powered and control shutdown. Please tell me as soon as possible where I can buy this. If you live in LA, I will come by and personally give you 80$ for this product congrats on a new design...hope it takes u to milions
