PowerView® Power Supply wiring information

The powerview system can run on a variety of power supplies. Main requirement is a DC output of 18 volts. Power rating depends on the amount of attached motors. As a general rule of thumb 1A per motor is required.

Depending on motor count and wire gauge a maximum cable length is allowed. See the tables below for more information.

Wire gauge: AWG22 / 0.33mm² Wire length.
