Withholding allowance: Powering the cRIO

Our team wants to keep our control system so we can work on developing some code. We would like to hold onto as few parts as possible, meaning, the cRIO, its modules, one Digital Sidecar, and any electronics (specifically, the camera). Of course, to work with these, we need to power them. I would rather not take the Power Distribution Board off the robot, and I know I need to power the cRIO somehow.

My question is, how can we get 24 V to the cRIO? I have plans for the other things. We can plug the camera into an outlet, and we can use an old electronics board for some of the motors. I don't know if the old electronics board will give the cRIO too little or too much power, and I would rather not take any risks. Does anyone have any ideas?

Re: Withholding allowance: Powering the cRIO

purchase a 24vdc power supply from ebay, I got one for my PLC it outputs +24Vdc @ 10A. Works great
