Power supply ?
« on: July 10, 2019, 11:00:19 AM »
Will the Mean Well LPV-20-5 be a good
Power supply for the F48?  Have seen a LPV-60-5 used. It is 8a. The 20 is 3

I use this to power the F48 by itself, it works well. Have not measured the current draw yet, it may depend on the number of receivers used. That may be why there is no spec provided for the board. It is a 3amp supply, but if you are running a pi3+ that draws close to 3amps by itself, it may be better to go with the LPV-60-5 that provides 8 amps, more than enough for both.

Had not thought of that. Yes I will also be running a Pi 3b+.

I meant to say if you are running a pi3b+ attached to the same power source as the F48. Just to clarify. I made this mistake. I have now ordered 2 of the LPV-60-5 myself. I did'nt realize my mistake till I read your post. So, you helped me too.
