Anybody had sucess powering the OS1-16 (or any OS1) from 12V / cigarette lighter socket in car ?
I thought of using a DC/AC converter, but the socket in the car can only provide 10A, which means 300W is already too much, but power supply has 100-240V @1.6A input rating (384W @240V).
In the end the OS1-16 requires 24V @1. 5A input (thus 36W) only, and I though about using a 12V to 24V converter and found this one which could fit: Mean Well SD-50A-24 2.1 A
Anybody can comment if this could work and (even more important) if it is save to use w/o damaging the Lidar (I'd still use the black box to connect power and Ethernet) ?
Best would be to have a definite statement about what's done inside the black box (i.e. does it protect against inverse power / over-current / over-voltage or not).
Any comments are welcome 🙂
