The DC power module is an upgrade that allows AD4D and AD4Q receivers to operate on AC or DC power. The DC module provides power if AC power fails or is unavailable. Switching between AC and DC occurs seamlessly, without affecting receiver operation.
The DC module can operate in the following input modes:
Note: The receiver will operate using AC power, unless the AC power source fails or is disconnected.
An icon on the home screen indicates the operating mode and power source for the receiver.
|Icon||Operating Mode||Power Source|
|DC power available.||Receiver is using AC power source, with DC power available.|
|Receiver operation from DC power source.||Receiver is using DC power source. AC power is not connected or has failed.|
|DC Power not available.||DC power source is not connected or voltage level is below minimum requirements.|
Note: Keep battery charged to a minimum of 10.9 V DC to ensure reliable DC operation.
The status of the DC module can be viewed in the receiver menu:
