Troubleshooting voltage issues on Obsession


Obsession processors (both 1 and 2) do not have self adjusting power supplies like modern computers.  This means that, over time, as the DC power connections get older and corrosion creeps in between them, they start to drop voltage, and the power supply does not keep up with this.  Once the main 5V rail drops below 4.8V, the processor will stop transmitting DMX and eventually lock up.  If you are having symptoms such as these, contact your dealer or ETC technical services for further assistance.
