New 8in LED display has a different power connector

Postby GaryTweet » Mon Mar 25, 2019 6:22 pm

Our club purchased a new 8in LED display to add to our 5in display. I noticed the power connector is different from our 5in display. When did this change? All the 5in and 8in Raceamerica displays have had the same connector for years.

The power connectors on all 8in/20cm LED Displays changed last year. The manufacturer of the previous connectors discontinued the 5-conductor version of the connector and forced the connector change.

The current connector is not compatible with the old so all the DC Power cables and AC Power Adapters have a different part number. The older AC Adapter is pn 6501A while the current AC Adapter is pn 6501F. Same goes fo the DC Power Cable, older is 6510A and the current DC Power Cable is 6510F.

Here are photos of the older and newer connectors on the displays:

Can I still buy the 6501A Ac Adapter for our 5in display with the older connector?

Yes, both AC and DC power cables are available with the older connector while supplies last. Unfortunately, RaceAmerica was able to purchase a limited quantity of connectors before the part went completely obsolete.
