Arise ACE 845v and SBC
I recently received an Advantech PCM-5862 SBC that I purchased. I am interested in purchasing the PS-ACE-845V power supply availible for $77.00/each through Arise Computer. The max power spec on it is 5V at 6 amps. The SBC says it has a max usage of 5V at 7 amps. Does anyone know if this power supply should be able to push the SBC? Or if not, I'm not sure how to test to see how much current it is drawing, but if someone could put up a quick explanation, I'll give it a shot.
Odds are it will work just fine. That max of 7 amps is probably the maximum the board will ever draw, loaded with memory, under full load, etc. It probably idles at quite a lot less. The Arise unit can probably do 7A for a few seconds if needed anyway.

Thanks Aaron. I'll try it out and find out for sure.
