Powering Up the Unit

Once all the cables are in place, the Makito X is ready to be powered up.


To prevent damage to the Makito X and/or power supply, be sure to connect the power supply to the chassis first and then to the AC source.
Always use the AC power cord and power supply provided with the unit. The single and dual-height chassis have different power supply units and chassis connectors.
Make sure the connector is properly inserted and locked to avoid intermittent power problems.


There is no power switch on the Makito X appliance. The power is automatically on when the unit is plugged in. When using the AC/DC power adapter, the power supply cord is used as the main disconnect device.
Ensure that the AC socket outlet is located near the equipment and is easily accessible.

To power up the Single-Height or Double-Height Chassis:

  1. Insert the 3-pin connector on the 12V power supply into the Power input jack at the rear of the Makito X.

  2. Connect the power cord to the power supply and plug the cord into a grounded AC power source.
  3. Wait until the Status LED stays solid green, indicating that the encoder is ready for operation.
