Unit Power Options
7600 Series 8 and 12-port encoders may be powered in one of two ways:
using individual power supplies or with an optional 200W power brick
(DVT-PWR-200W) and 4-unit wiring harnesses (DVT-WHK-4UA).

Up to eight (8) encoders may be powered by a power brick via two 4-unit
wiring harnesses.

Note: Each wiring harness contains an 8A fuse.

Warning: Do not use 10-unit wiring harnesses (DVT-WHK-10UB)


7504/7508 units. These harnesses are designed for the 7501, 7502, and
7601 units, which have a reversed power connector orientation.
