  • Evolution converter box for hanging monitors

    We have just 2 pairs of lanes that have had the hanging monitors upgraded to flat screens with the evolution converters. Our center operates on the as90 lowers and uppers otherwise. We have out fair share of issues here and there overall but just recently the converters stopped working. Upper monitors will not turn on and if we turn them on manually there is no grid. I noticed that the leds on the box were orange so i power cycled and they began working again temporarily. Well after doing this a couple times now the leds are very dim and kind of a mix of red orange. Powercycle does nothing and i cant find any info in manuals or online. Please help, any info would be great.

    I don't know anything about that particular system but it sounds like a power supply issue inside the converter. Regulated supplies don't necessarily just die but can drop output under load which can cause symptoms you're describing. If you or someone there is electronically savvy you could open it up and get some readings to know for sure.

      I have needed to replace several of the power supplies in one of my centers....the leds going a yellowish dim means it time to replace, output has drop as stated....

        Thank you guys for responding. I spoke with someone that sells/deals in the converters and thats exactly what he said. The power supply cord went bad. I swapped it with an adjustable supply for now and its been working like a champ.

          We keep a spare power supply on hand.
