Home made power on/shutdown device
Hello, I'm new on that board, but I've been reading post here for last 2-3 weeks and now my carputer projet is starting. Onlyproblem is that I have a concern about powering the computer.
First of all, I live in canada so shipping cost is an issus...
Computer gonna use a normal ATX PSU running on 120 VAC, as for the car I'll use an inverter. Only problem is to powerup those thing and the biggest problem is to poweroff them... I was thinking about a relay that would be on the 12V line that goes to the ivnerter and an other relay between the power switch pin from the mobo (and a delay device between those two action (didn't figured it yet just read http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/power-supplies/52552-delay-device.html)
As for the shutting down device, I just don't have any idea, any help would be really apreciated
