Delta+XP 24VDC/5VDC 3rd Party Power Supply
Supplier: Integrated Power Designs: www.ipd.power.com Phone: 570-824-4666
Dual output power supply. Product no. CE-225-2101 with Cover - $273.60
Though size wise identical it is not just a plain swap. You have to tweak it a bit.
- To mount it on the metal plate (the original supply was on) you have
to drill holes on the back plate by removing the board.
I got all these from mouserelectronics.com ( http://www.mouser.com/catalog/catalogUSD/641/1460.pdf)
The part numbers are: 538-09-50-3031 (three pin)
- The original specs of the Philips power supply are as follows: AC 110/230V, 6A/3A 47-63Hz DC 24V/8A DC5V/6A
- When using CE-225-2101 or any other compatible power supply, there is no need to re-connect the jumpers as on the original. Just the Brown and blue leads for 24V and 5V, that's all.
