Does the Obsession 1 (1500 channel) have a switch mode PSU or linear supply?
Also is there a varistor or similar protection device to protect the unit from over voltages
The Obsession 1 Console contains a switching power supply (ETC Part Number PS 115).
In terms of over voltage protection there are 5 fuses that are either inline with the power circuit or internal to the power supply to provide voltage protection:
- A fuse between mains voltage the on/off switch.
- A fuse built into the power supply to protect the power supply.
- A fuse for the RFU +12V to Protect the RFU lines.
- A fuse for the AUI network connection +12V to protect the internal components of the console (CPU, Hard drive, ect).
