What power adapter to use?

Postby fromar » Wed Mar 14, 2012 5:25 pm

Hi All,

I assembled my osPID, but I didn't realize it wasn't going to come with a power cord. What kind of power should I use?

I saw on the unmaintained blog that he purchased a "12V, Positive Center, A/C Adapter". Is that for the box itself?

Omar,

You can use an AC-DC adapter with voltage range 7-38VDC center positive. The on-board regulator will regulate them to 5V. We'll engrave some marking on the back panel in future batch.

Thanks for the reply! I plugged the box into an adjustable voltage plug I have and set it at 12 volts. The box powers, lights blink, the LCD menu shows up, and the relay clicks on and off every few seconds. I can only assume it's working.
