Music Easel power supply?

Post by sandettie » Mon Feb 20, 2017 6:55 pm

My new Easel just arrived, and I learn that the power supply shipped separately and won't arrive until tomorrow. :deadbanana: I see that it says "12V DC" on the jack for it; is this something I can safely go get a generic PSU for at a music store? Or is there a risk of frying the Easel without the "official" PSU?

I am. So. Itchy. to fire it up.

This is the official supply and its specs. I wouldn't use anything else.

Disappointment with any module is usually a failure of imagination.

The story you are about to hear is true.

Cincon has made minor changes to their adapters a few times in the past couple years; the amperage is one.

Does anyone know if you can buy a spare supply for a Easel? Or if you know if the tip is center positive or negative?

Thanks!

Center is positive and the barrel is 2,5mm
Anything with 2A or more is fine
The internal power card is only -+500mAh

The power supply that shipped with my BEMI LEM208 has an infuriatingly short lead permanently attached to the brick, making it challenging to place any distance from the case to avoid audible interference. Could someone point me to a short (1-3ft) 2.5mm extension cable that would work with the Cincon/Easel?

Im so glad to say that the papz-mounted Easel i am using (it’s a 208r but papz build the finishing stages) has an intern psu, and there is a three pronged powercable receptacle on the outside of the boat (110-230 even, I believe, if I ever travel to the us I have to ask him first...;-)

Yes, you can buy a spare from Mouser:

You would have to re-use the universal AC cord that plugs into it, or buy a new one from Amazon, Ebay, Fry's etc.
