THE CNX-P5V 15 WATT +5V REGULATOR
Upgrade your P1900 to include a 3RD regulated (+5V) output!
Can also be used as a stand-alone +5V/15 Watt Point Of Load (POL) supply
Now you can add a 3rd regulated output to
your P1900! The P5V 5 volt regulator lets
you power your Mac mini or Travla case (+18.5V),
Screen (+12V), AND NOW... +5V USB devices
with a switched power source. The P5V can
provide 3+ amps for power hungry USB devices
like Audigy 2NX sound card, WiFi, and GPS
devices. The P5V is a "bolt-on"
upgrade that requires no soldering when installed
in the P1900. It is also controlled by the
DLYON control of the P1900 so that you can
safely power down your USB devices when you
ignition is off.
The P5V installs easily into the P1900 using only a phillips screwdriver. The output wires may be attached to your existing hub power cable by simply connecting two wires.
The P5V can also be used as a stand-alone Point Of Load (POL) regulator for +5V devices. For applications that require more than about 1 amp, a small heatsink will be required (16 degC/Watt). Below is an example of an Aavid/Thermalloy (HS-230) available from DigiKey for about $.50. Alternatively, the P5V could be attached to an existing metal chassis (the P5V mounting tab is at ground potential) instead of using a dedicated heatsink.
Below is an example of wiring two USB devices (powered USB hub and Audigy 2NX USB sound card) using modular Radio Shack cabling and barrel connectors. The Radio Shack DC power cable has been soldered directly to the P5V in this example.
The P5V Installation Manual is now available for download HERE.
