Re: ATV burning out Raven receivers

Brian,
I sent an e-mail off to Raven's tech support and here's what I got back:

I checked the voltage ratings of a couple receivers. The 410 has an
input voltage rating of 8 - 18 V and the 210/310 is rated at 11 - 32 V.
I have found that if you are working with a low voltage, the performance
will diminish. I recommend verifying the voltage level on the power
line going to any receiver. If you are working with a low voltage, I
suppose there's the possibility of something going wrong. It's all
dependent on how the receiver is designed to perform. The 410 will
reset if it drops down to 7 V. I have seen high HDOP errors on the 210
with an input voltage of 9 V. I guess the best thing to say is please
make sure the voltage level on the power wire is at least 11 volts and
make sure the signal is "clean" (without noise etc). If you have these
two equations, the receiver should work fine and not have any problems.

Hopefully you'll get some feedback from users who've had experience with this.
