I received an email today from a customer, and thought that this was a great question that deserved to be shared.
“Can you tell me how the display models are powered? I want to practise with my new Elite DSI in my house. Thanks in advance, Mike”
Although we have had powered displays at the store since we first opened, we take their operation for granted, but as I thought about Mike’s question, I realise that this is something most people will not know.
For most of our displays items that require 12 volt power, we use the Alinco DM-330 MV power supply. This allows using mobile apparatus on household power.
See it here.
For our display, where many units are powered on at the same time, this power supply can provide up to 32 amps of current.
For the user powering one or two devices, you would not need such a powerful supply (although you’ll have plenty of reserve power), so, in Mike’s case, he could look at a lower current power supply like this one.
To see Radioworld’s full line of power supplies, look here. If you are not sure what the right power supply is for your situation, just send us an email like Mike did, and we will be happy to offer some suggestions.
