SC142, v1.0, Description

SC142 is a low profile power supply module designed for the RC2014 bus.

This module supplies power to the RC2014 bus. The input is from 8 to 15 volts (D.C.) at a maximum of 1 ampere. The module contains a voltage regulator to provide the RC2014 bus with a 5 volt 1 ampere supply. This 5 volt supply can also be used to power external devices from the onboard screw terminal and pin header.

The module also provides a reset signal to the RC2014 bus. This signal is generated from a reset button, or external reset switch connected to the onboard pin header. A voltage supervisor and reset device is also included, which can be enabled with a jumper shunt.

The main features of this design are:

  • Voltage regulator (5 volt, 1 amp) for 8 to 15 volt input
  • 5 volt output via screw terminals and header pins
  • On/Off toggle switch
  • Power indicator LED
  • Power input via 2.1mm power jack or screw terminals
  • Front facing reset button
  • Reset indicator LED
  • Voltage supervisor and reset device
