[HN7000S] Power supply question

Can a 9000 power supply be used with a 7000s? If so, what is the wattage?

Don't know about the 9000s but wasn't there an issue with the 6000/7000 change over...45watt on some vs 64 watt on the other ?
That could make a difference.

The 45s were a problem, but I'm not sure it happened exactly with the 6000/7000 change, and I think they went back to 64.

But that's why I asked about the wattage IF the 9000 PS would work with a 7000s

I guess your right, was it when they came out with the 2 watt transmitter ?

Maybe PM grohgreg , haven't seen him here in a while but he sure knows the hardware.

I don't think he did the upgrade to the 9000, but there have to be a lot of people here who did.

6000-7000 modems need 64w power supply for 1 or 2w odu. (45w were briefly shipped with the 7000 for a short time, we then replaced tham as we ran across them on repair)

9000 is 74w power supply for 1w odu. 2w odu is 110w psu i think.

1000....i forget, and im too lazy to go check my stock.

BUT, THEY ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE.

Thanks. Since higher wattage would not be a problem, is it because different voltages are used, or is it different connector, or both?

Connectors unfortunately are universal, but the voltages & amperes carried vary between/among adapters and modems. That is why it's so important to use the right power adapter with the right modem. This FAQ should help; »customer.kb.hughesnet.com/Pages/1124.aspx

Having too much amperage available wouldn't be a problem. Voltage is most definitely an issue.

the 4000 through 7000 modems use 19.5V and 6.5V. I finally found an image online for the 9000 PS that was large enough for me to read the voltages, which were 48V and 13.5V.

Not sure why someone here couldn't tell me that if they had a PS to look at.
