The M2-ATX is an intelligent, high power, vehicle (car/boat/electric cart) 12-volt DC-DC ATX PC power supply designed for car PC and battery powered applications. Designed to provide power and to control the ON/OFF switch of a mainboard (car PC) based on ignition status. The M2-ATX is a wide input (6~24 V) vehicle/car/battery operated ATX power supply capable of surviving tough car engine cranks (down to 6 volts) as well as transient over-voltage situations. Just connect it to your car/boat/RV/solar battery and power up your PC.

The M2-ATX comes with complete cable harness consisting of:
  • ATX cable extender plus HDD and Floppy power (9")
  • SATA power cable
  • Cable harness includes connectors for: 1 Molex, 1 Berg, 1 SATA, 2 ATX
  • Power input cable harness terminated in 0.25' fastons (12")
  • 2-pin M/B on/off power ON control wire harness (9")

M2-ATX has 8 user-selectable microcontroller driven timing modes, allowing you to choose up to 8 ignition/shutdown car PC timing schemes via a built-in shutdown controller. By removing all user-selectable jumpers, the M2-ATX becomes a traditional PC PSU with no ignition control (shutdown controller bypassed) and it can be used in non-vehicle computer applications.

Even if your computer is off, a PC will still consume a few hundred milliwatts, needed to monitor PC ON/OFF status. When the computer (car pc) is in the suspend/sleep mode, it will consume even more power, because the RAM needs to be powered at all times. The power consumption in the suspend mode is a few watts. No matter how big your car battery is, it will eventually drain your vehicle battery in a matter of days.

While in deep sleep mode, the M2-ATX constantly monitors your car battery voltage levels, preventing deep discharge situations by automatically shutting down (using a built-in shutdown controller) until the battery reaches safe levels again.

Compatibility with other Mini-ITX components: The M2-ATX is form factor compatible with the VoomPC enclosure and with most Casetronic and Morex enclosures. It is footprint compatible with the M1-ATX. This power supply is not compatible with our line of Serener fanless cases.
