3.5 Power Supply Considerations

3.5.2 +12Vdc Pins

The single +12Vdc pin on the VMEbus P2 connectors allows for at least 12 Watts of power to the mounted drives. This is sufficient for almost all combinations possible with the BI0316. For modules that draw more current from the +12Vdc than is allowed via the single VMEbus P1 connector pin, an extra +12Vdc pin is defined on the VMEbus P2 connector. This pin can be externally connected to the +12Vdc power supply used on the VMEbus using the BI0318 or BI0319 transition module. When Brand Innovators encounters such a need for a module, it will clearly state this in its deliveries.
