    Connecting a Backup Power Source to C-1616, IP-1616 or C-6200 Consoles


    Can I connect a secondary power source to the Dispatch console?



    The Dispatch consoles have an Auxiliary Power connector and a primary power supply connector on the rear of the unit. These connectors are internally connected but not designed to supply power to the unit at the same time (either one but not both at the same time). If both sources are required a switch must be implemented on the backup power source requiring a manual switch over from primary to the backup source if the primary power source fails.

    Power should not be supplied simultaneously to both connectors as hum and noise could be introduced. When primary power is restored, the switch should then be returned to the normal position.
