Powering ON the controller

5 years 8 months ago #29529806 by zaira
Can I use a variable dc power supply to power on the controller MDC2460 by just connecting the Positive to the power control input terminal and negative to the ground..??
So that will the PC detect the controller???

Yes. 12V should be sufficient. If this is a switching power supply, please take precaution as they are known to give voltage spikes and can cause damage to the controller.

Doesn't appear so. Solid state regulated supply.

You just connect the power supply directly to the pins, power control and ground.

For 12V ,its showing fault(undervolt)... Does the current matters??

For being connected via power control, that is to be expected. It is not connected to the main power line. If you were connected via the vmot, then the undervoltage led will go away. Current doesn't matter unless you are drawing high current. >200mA
