Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Notebooks on board for SM electrical wireing
- Hi Stephan.
The cheapest and probaly most efficient way in terms of output is to use a
DC/DC converter from Targus ( http://www.targus.com ).
Input is between 8 to 16V and output will be according to your computer as
long as you pick the right model.
You will get the 12V DC from the existing 12 v socket. This 12V comes from
the DC/DC adaptor feeding the B&G Hydra centrale. This will spare you the
use of a converter which will defenitely have a higher current consumption.
I used to use a converter but I swich to this Targus DC/DC adaptor and I
find it much beter and convenient

> Hanspeter BaettigHans,
I had Amel install a 24v to 110v inverter in the hanging locker for
my US-purchased electronics. The same inverter can be purchased in
any combination of 12/24v DC to 110/220v AC. Check the West Marine
catalogue or westmarine.com online. It is a pure sine wave inverter
and works wonderfully for my printers as well. I bought a 1000W
inverter which is a little expensive, but powers everyting.
