OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT: The following instructions must be read before using
the adapter for the first time.
This section explains how to select the output Tips and set the output
voltage / polarity and power up the Adapter.
Select the output Tips
• Select the appropriate adapter tip for your digital camera. Choose
the tip with correct dimension specified in the compatibility list,
or checked by direct fitting the tip direct to the equipment without
connecting to the output cable.
• Before selecting the voltage setting, please refer to compatibility list
to confirm the polarity
- Center Positive output or
- Center Negative output
** For Sony adapter (Tips F & G ) the polarity should be Positive.
Note: Special care should be taken at this point. Double
verification is suggested to check voltage and polarity
marking on the equipment.
• After confirming the polarity and voltage required, rotate the Voltage
Selector Knob at the bottom to the appropriate voltage range.
Red marking – Center negative voltage
Green/Blue marking – Center positive voltage
Voltage Selector Knob
• Plug the adapter into the wall outlet (100-240 Vac) or connect to the
12Vdc through the Cigarette Adapter.
- Center Positive selection, Green or Blue LED indication appears
and selected voltage value will be indicated.
- Center Negative selection, Red LED indication appears and
selected voltage value will be indicated.
• Connect the output to the equipment. The equipment will power
up as usual.
NOTE: DO NOT set the voltage and connect to the equipment
after Powering up the unit. Improper Voltage setting will
cause damage to the equipment connected.
