I got a GL-X3000 and would like to connect it directly to the 12V electrical system in my motorhome (Fiat Ducato model 2019). Is this possible or do I need a voltage converter?
How much voltage difference does the GL-X3000 work without errors?
You’re good with a direct connection to your 12v system. The X3000 accepts 9-36V. The prototype case for the X3000 actually had 9-36V DC written on it, but GL was concerned that it would confuse consumers.
Could you let us know how you connect X3000 on motorhome 12V DC? A picture showing it would be appreciated.
To help our customers to connect with motorhome battery easily, we are preparing some power cable samples, showed as below picture, 1 meter power cable with 3A fuse. And we can sent one sample to you after the samples are ready.
You can buy these Wago clamps at our hardware store in Germany! Some motorhomes already have these, we had to buy them! I still have a picture of the installation! However, I’m wondering, I had problems with the built-in modem in the router, it was always online and then offline again, an colleague from gl-inet wrote to me, that I an only use the original power supply with 230V, otherwise the router would not working correctly??? Since I installed the beta firmware (Saturday December 30th) I haven’t had any more failures!
Thanks. X3000 can connect with the power on vehicle, but need to assure the DC range is 9~36V, while XE3000（with embeded battery ）only supports 9~16V. And the maximum power consumption is ~20W, i.e. ~12V/2A.
If you still meet offline issue, we will analyze it. Thanks a lot.
I just snipped the cord that came with it and installed spade connectors so that I can easily switch between the wall wart and the hard wired 12v connection if I need to make it portable for any reason.
I just made a recent order of GL-X3000 and refurbished Beryl from you and they are arriving today and my order number was #EU9826. I wasn’t able to register to forum with the same email as I used in the purchase so they are different.
Can you check my address from that order so I don’t need to share it publicly?
