I want to use auto battery to power our SM200B. What type of DC connector is used for power supply.
And my second question is:
The device doesn’t have a power switch. What procedure (steps) do you suggest to the device properly switch On and Off.

We have the power cables in stock. These cables are quite hard to fabricate.

Justin is off this week, when he returns on Monday he will have some suggestions for you regarding a power switch.

One option for powering down the SM200B is to shut down the PC controlling it. Most PCs allow you to select whether or not the USB is powered when it is shut down. If the USB 5V is turned off, the SM200B will turn off completely (I believe it is something like a milliwatt of power draw).
If a mechanical switch is what you want, any switch that is rated for at least 20V, 5A should be sufficient.
