Eagle 4 with Mach 2 #Mach2GTO

No the people who sold me the Eagle. High Point Scientific I believe. They ordered it from Primaluce. I had texted Primaluce support first and that was their process.

They custom made one for me back when I got my Eagle 2.

No, I have  (well, ordered) the Primaluce AC power adapter specifically for the Eagle4. It’s 12.8 V out.

Oh, of course another option is to just ask Prime Luce if they can just make the cable for you. Filippo is very nice to talk with and will likely understand this need.

I have Primaluce's Eagle power connector with the Anderson power pole connections, which will connect the Mach 2's output to the Eagle.
However, I cannot find the appropriate adapter which would connect from the AC converter out (which would have the Eagle 'in' connection) to the Anderson power pole connections to the Mach2's input.

Has anyone done this? I cannot even find on Primaluce's site the description of their power pinout
Prima Luce does sell the individual power connectors, so you can make your own power pole cable with an Eagle-style power connector on one end. I believe you would need this one:

If you do not have the power pole cable crimpers or anything, you can buy a pre-made power pole cable with one end bare, and add the above connector to it:

Which AC converter are you using to power the Eagle? What connector is on that converter?

Caution: DO NOT USE the Mach2 power converter for any accessories - it puts out 24 volts and should never be used to power your 12 volt accessories.
