Mr. Ted Fletcher,
I owe you a HUGE apology, for thread-jacking this post. I just realized it says “Ask Ted”,
not Ask Dale.. I hope that my interjection did not cause any harm. Please delete my post if you feel it should be removed. It will not happen again.
The one with the unit is
DC output and I don’t know if I should try to plug in
You need an
AC to 12vAC transformer. Here in the US, I purchased a cheap 120vAC to 12vAC, 1500mA transformer like this: http://www.radioshack.com/enercell-12v-1500ma-ac-adapter/2730358.html#start=3 ” class=”bbcode_url”> http://www.radioshack.com/enercell-12v-1500ma-ac-adapter/2730358.html#start=3
As you know, your picture shows a 230vAC to DC output. Proclaiming my ignorance of overseas voltages, you should locate a “wallwart” that is ???vAC to 12vAC, more than 300mA/.3A
Here is a link to information, from Ted Fletcher, on transformers:
I hope this helps and that you have a Happy New Year with your 3Q.
The manual for my VC3Q (USA-model) says to use 12v AC external power.
THE POWER SUPPLY
An external 12V AC power supply provides the power for the unit.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO POWER THE UNIT FROM ANY POWER SUPPLY OTHER THAN THE ONE SUPPLIED WITH THE UNIT.
Circuitry inside the VC3Q converts the 12V AC into 14.5-0-14.5V and a 48V DC supply for the phantom power.
