Powering an AnalogX

Post by PS14 »

Can the RJ45 port of my MK2 power the AnalogX thru pins 1 & 8? I know the instructions say to connect it to a switched ign source but wasn't sure if this applied when using a MK. thanks, Dave

Found the answer in the Can bus integration documentation.

Important note for MK2: The +12v connection on the RJ45 is connected internally to the +12v on the terminal block on RaceCapture/Pro MK2. It's recommended you only power via one source - RJ45 or terminal block - if you have both connected at the same time, you may cause back-feeding of power through RaceCapture/Pro, which may cause damage to the unit. Note: RaceCapture/Pro MK3 has internal protection diodes which avoids this issue.

Hi, looks like you figured it out.

On MK2 you'll be able to do power it via RJ45 as 12v is internally connected with the terminal block.
