ATW 100 Power Requirements

Hey Everyone,

I have 2 ATW100's in my field pack and have been running them in various configurations of 12v external or 2 internal 9volts. When using the 2 9volts I noticed the power LED glows brighter and has less interference then when utilizing the the 12v ext. battery.

Sooo here's my question...

Is the ATW receiver capable of handling a range of voltages (ie: the FP33 mixer can use 12-30volts)? If this is the case I could replace the 12volt battery with a 24volt one and stop going though 9volts like water.

From the user manual:

External Power
The back panel is equipped with a jack for an external
12-18V DC source, 200 mA nominal current. The jack takes a
standard 2.5 mm I.D. coaxial DC power plug, center positive.

Dean,

Thank you, that will help a lot.

I do not have the manual at my disposal and the only markings on the bottom of the pack for power consumption is 12v.

I managed to find the manual online and happened to have the PDF in my computer here.
