ColorSource consoles are shipped with a 12v power supply with a locking ring connector. It is important to use the manufacturer's recommended power supply. The use of other power supplies could lead to malfunction or erratic touch screen operation.
Issues have specifically been reported when a ColorSource Console was operated with an older SmartFade power supply.
ColorSource consoles currently ship with ETC Part# PS450 PWR SUP EXT 12V 60W / 100-240VAC
ColorSource consoles previously shipped with ETC Part# PS432-F - PWR SUP EXT 12V 40W Locking Barrel. These two power supplies are interchangeable.
Power Supply Draw:
When the supply is plugged into Mains power, but the ColorSource console is not connected, the power supply draws 0.5W
When the ColorSource console is plugged in and active, it draws a maximum of 18W. When it is set to hibernate, it draws 4W.
