Power supply specs

Postby TomXP411 » March 17th, 2018, 2:28 pm

Can someone tell me what power supply is being used internally in the Altair Clone?

I want to install a Raspberry Pi and feed a portable monitor from a single power supply, so I'm thinking of replacing the internal power supply with something that can either supply 5 volts and 12 volts, or just 12 volts at something like 5 amps or more.

See “Power Supply” towards the bottom of the page at http://altairclone.com/details.htm. With the fan disconnected, current consumption averages just 40ma.

Thanks! That simplifies things; I found a 10 amp power supply on Amazon for like $15. I'll swap that out and use that to power everything; the Pi can use a hardwired downconverteer.
