i have the dsatx, and i'dd like to hookup my tview to the aux port(if that's what it is for)
do i have to do anything special, or can i just solder some wires from the switch on to the tview lcd, to a jumper that i can connect to the power supply?
The AuxSW pin is an open collector output. It will pull a signal to ground. You can also hook up a relay to it to make it do other things. It really depends on what you want to hook to it.Originally Posted by gameboy
if i have it pull a relay, will it acutally put a long enough pulse out on it, to energize the relay?Originally Posted by zootjeff
can u give me a diagram for setting it up for a relay?(like were to pull the v+ from as to not overload anything or short anything out)
and if i have it pull a relay, i do need a diode between the relay coils right?
A diode would be good.Originally Posted by gameboy
Do you want a pulse? or an always on? right now the AUX line does an always on.
was looking for a pulse, will have to find that diagram elsewhere on this forum to convert always on to pulse.
also, does the dsatx force-ably shutdown a computer if it is lockedup during shutdown?(remove power to mobo if it does not shutdown after it is told)
