Default Question: Power Supply Voltage is high

Question: customers have called w/ questions concerning the voltage output on our P9500i/ix/GX65 download +12V power supplys' output voltage - specifically some customers have read an output in excess of +17VDC.

Answer: this voltage when read w/ NO LOAD (ie, no detector plugged into it) volt meter reading of +17V is correct - when the detectors is plugged in, the LOADED voltage will read correct in the range of +12 to 14.8 V +/- 0.5V. this is normal and the power supply is working correctly. you should also know that this power supply is designed to be used w/ ESCORT and BELTRONICS radar detectors only.
