The voltage input for the geoDVR Gen3 is variable and can be between 9V-32V DC. The average power consumption should be between 25 – 35 Watts depending on what additional optional modules are enabled on the unit. The max/peak power consumption is approximately 65 Watts.
The geoDVR Gen3 is usually shipped setup to start on ignition (basically, when the IGN input gets voltage (between 9-32V) for more than a couple of seconds, the geoDVR powers on). The common way most customers wire this is to put a on/off switch between the positive terminal and IGN terminal. This way, once the switch is turned on, the geoDVR will start.
IMPORTANT: If using the wall power adapter for testing do not use 220V (European, other standard for AC) directly – it will fry the unit. You will need a 110V converter. Once converted down to 110V AC, the power supplies we provided will then convert the voltages to do 12V DC which is the voltage the geoDVR requires.
