Powering Mobitec ICU400

Post by ScaniaGrenda »

So I've recently purchased a Mobitec ICU400 Destination controller because why not? While I'm waiting for it to arrive I thought I'd try and sort out how I'm going to power the unit. Unfortunately I'm a bit stumped with how I'd go about this as electronics & power cabling isn't really my area of expertise. If possible I'd like to try and power the controller through USB cable somehow but I could look at other means If it can be done.

The controller I purchased is model CU33143-2, it's a model where it uses USB port on the front to upload destination files.

I've read in a previous older thread that the blue port is for updating the controller or something while I believe the green is the power port but what cable do I need for this and how would I be able to get that to then go to USB adapter to power it or will that not be possible? Sorry if the last isn't clear, I'm still scratching my head but could possibly try and clear myself further up if needed.

Seeing how my original plan is going to be unlikely to happen. Is there anyone on here who can tell me where to get the cables & equipment I need to power this unit? I'd still love to get it working.
