Powering a Bartop

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

When it comes to powering bartop arcades, is there any better (smaller) option than this:

http://www.amazon.com/Smart-Energy-Saving-Autoswitching-Technology/dp/B000P1QJXQ

Has more outlets than I'm going to need and it's pretty large... but as I understand it, using this will allow me to power everything on/off via the computer (master).

Also, to anyone that's used one, where do you end up putting it in your bartop?

Between the mobo/control panel? Or attached to the side?

Thanks,

Owen

Hi there is there anything smaller seeing as you dont need all the sockets overkill really.Yes they are good as you will only have one lead coming out the back on both my bartops ive built i attached them on the inside rear door its alot neater as you don't have the lead running anywhere other than out.and there should be plenty room for it.

Newoski, for what its worth, I used a very simple Power strip from Tripp Lite. since it had a fuse, was metal cased, 6ft cable, and could be drilled into would frame easily. I didnt need more than 3 outlets, as harnesses were USB. So the only components to plug in were Mobo and amplifier.

Here is how it looks in the back of the bartop:

I think he is looking for the auto switching feature more than anything. Newoski if your not afraid of 120 vac I would literally cut it down to size. The PCB is probably located directly under the switch. I would dismantle it and cut the three wires run in series to the extra plugs, cut the housing, and cover the end with a bit of acrylic and JB weld.
