because the harness has been converted to include a switcher, it hooks directly into the switcher which then powers the pcb and the monitor. is there something i'm not getting?

You will be running a mains cable from the wall to the cab right ? Inside the cab you could split up the mains voltage towards the step-down converter (if actually needed at all...) and towards the switcher. Then you can use a 230V switcher that you already have....

It's the same as installing a 230V fluorescent fixture...

the switcher is not only connected to the monitor, but also to a power brick. the easiest (but not cheapest) thing to do is install a 110v switcher and be done with it, i wouldn't have to split up a perfect wiring harness. there's even a space reserved for a switcher on the power supply board itself. i now understand what you guys are trying to tell me, but for the setup i have a 110v switcher is the perfect solution - except for the fact that i don't have one right now Wink

alright, i contacted the german suzo / happ base yesterday asking whether they had any switchers in store - and they do arrow



here are the specs (in german):

·         Industrie-Standard
·         AC Eingang 88-132Vac oder 176-264Vac
·         +5V, 3~15 Amp, +15V 4 Amp, -5V 1 Amp
·         CE, TUV und UL Zulassung
·         Hohe Effizienz
·         Einfachen Hochstarten
·         Grüne „Strom Ein“ LED
·         Überlastungsschutz
·         Eingebauter EMI-Filter
·         Max. Geräuschminimierung durch eingebaute Hochgeschwindigkeitsdiode
·         Gewicht 0,8kg / 20 Stück pro V.E.

seems to be nice quality (no CCC) and the price is nice as well: €23.65 per unit (€18.40 if i take 20+ Wink). i'll be ordering three of those soon, so i anyone wants to jump onbard, now is your chance to do so. i'll be seeing a couple of you guys this year, so i could easily bring them along.

so, place your order with me NOW Cool

I assume +15V must be +12V ? At least that's what you'd expect and also what the picture says...

Sticker also says 220-240VAC. Is it switchable ?
