View Full Version : UK Power Supply for Phidgets LED64

06-03-2008, 05:12 PM
I took the plunge and ordered the Phidgets LED 64 starter kit from "trossenrobotics". Unfortunately (silly me) it is on its way to me with a US 6V power supply. Can someone direct me to a suitable power supply for here in the UK (frightened of frying the board) - something from Maplin or Rapid Electronics or do I just need a UK plug with a US connection (to work with the US 6V adaptor supplied with the kit) as Maplin have?

I think the uk to us adapter would work as it is only the input voltage that has changed. But i'm not 100% sure.

when the PSU arrives look at its rated input voltage, if it says 100-240Vac its a switch mode supply so it will be ok.

Your best bet is actually take it into Maplin's and ask them to match it for you.

Thanks guys. To be on the safe side I will take it to Maplins.
