    Hmm, PW-200-M seems like a great solution, haven't heard much about it

    http://www.mini-box.com/s.nl/c.ACCT1...category.13/.f

    The PW-200-M + ITPS seems like a perfect solution to run a Micro-ATX board but I can't find much info by searching. Has anyone tried this or know how it works? It would be more power than Opus 150w and half the price! Am I missing something.

    Close but no cigar . . . .

    The ITPS only handles 5A, so 60W max. The PW200 is great, just need a different solution for Power Sequencing. You will need someing to handle 18-20 amps to be safe.

    Yeah, tough to use a controller that can't power up the PS unit. It works well with the 60watt dc-dc power supply that omes in the C134 and stuff though.

    Best bet is the M1-ATX as an all in one unit or the Opus. The carnetix can be used to power dc-dc power supplys though to, so that is another option.

    Thanks blinky, I didn't see that in my searches because the "PW200M" was all one word. That's the info I wanted. Well, at least it's the info I was looking for. It's certainly not what I wanted. From all this, it looks like the only way to fly is the 150w opus. Damnit. I just wish there was a Solution more than 150 watts, regulated, w/ shutdown that would work for a Micro-ATX board for less than $200.

    Well hopefully, his wishes aren't that extreme. As this hobby progresses (although I should call it a sport if bedmaking and competitive eating are considered to be) hopefully these things will come to light. Often times technology surprises us, I'm frankly surprised that more powerhouse companies haven't taken to building mobile power solutions.


    Think about it, they've got a mobo the size of a deck of cards but cannot figure out how to power it efficiently from a 12v source . . . .

    ...dunno about that buddy. And it's great PSU if you don't mind manually turning your PC on or off, or if you're good enough to create your own power sequencer. I run my PW-series PSU's unregulated, and haven't had any problems whatsoever. And I survive cranking.
    CarPC install is starting to come along again...
