Replacement power adapters...

YanksIn2009 3,838 901 January 21, 2017 at 03:52 PM
Does anyone know if there is a place that sells generic power adapters that you can match to a model\voltage\wattage\connector spec similar to what is done with computer memory online? I need to replace a power adapter on a piece of equipment and its replacement from the re-sellers seems to be going for $65, so I was hoping I could find a generic equivalent somewhere that was cheaper.

There are electronics parts sites like this: http://www.digikey.com/products/e...apters/135
but nothing I'm aware of where you can punch in the model and get a list of adapters.

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?

Pretty much what I thought. Thanks.

Well it should be pretty easy. If you have voltage and power in and out, as well as the mating details (is it a barrel connector? etc).

4 pin Din connector
Input: 100-240V-2.5A, 50-60Hz
Output: 12-17V=10.0A, 150 W Max

Could not really find a match online except by model number and the going rate seems to be around 60 dollars + shipping.

Input is AC and output is.... DC?
Looks like most of that price is the fact it's such a high amperage... most common converters will be <5A or so.

Looks like something like this [jameco.com]would work ($22) then you'd have to get theDIN connector [mouser.com] and wire it. You should be able to find the pinout online but with +/- and 4 wires it shouldn't be difficult.

It also appears this [jameco.com]is about what you are looking for - $47.

What are the input specs on the equipment?

Yes AC In, DC Out. Probably not worth all the hassle to save 20-25 dollars or so. I figured they were just criminally gouging on the adapters as is usually the case, but looks like it would cost 30-40 dollars no matter what so not so much. Not that it makes me any happier mind you, but it is what it is. I really should upgrade that whole system but I do not feel like spending the money to do it.

Any model information for the device or on the psu would be helpful. A lot of devices that use a DIN connector for power have a dual voltage power supply eg 12v and 5v.
