The Verdigris system draws its operating power directly from the panel on which it is installed. During installation, the system can be powered on to run installation diagnostics and configuration setup. If the panel will be fully de-energized, the system can be temporarily powered from a nearby wall receptacle. If there is no nearby or temporary power available, a battery-powered inverter can be used for diagnostics before completing the installation and re-energizing the panel.

1. Acquire an off-the-shelf power cable for a wall outlet (you can buy one from the local hardware store or get a spare from your IT department). Note: these instructions apply to NEMA 1-15P and 5-15P type connectors.

2. Cut the cable --opposite the male end 🔌 -- with enough length to reach the power source.

3. Insert the cut ends into the N and B ports on the bud. Either configuration should work but ignore the earth ground (shown green in the attached picture); or use a two-prong cable.

4. Plug into portable battery-powered inverter (see specs below) or wall outlet as normal.

5. ⚠️  Use caution. Always connect the exposed ends into the bud before plugging the male end into the power source (wall/inverter); and unplug the male end from the power source before disconnecting from the bud. Contacting the exposed ends while connected to power can result in injury or death.

If updating:

A. Once the systems are powered: connect to wifi via the System Set-up Tool

B. Notify Verdigris that the system is connected and provide the system serial number. The serial number can be found by sliding up the access panel

C. Leave the bud connected to power/wifi until instructed otherwise by Verdigris

Tech specs for portable battery-powered inverter

The battery-powered inverter used during installation should meet the following tech specs:

  • 110-120VAC Pure Sine Wave output (50 or 60Hz)Do NOT use modified sine wave output type inverters, these may damage the BUD
  • ~200wH Capacity (this spec is the battery capacity of the portable inverter)

The type of battery-powered inverter used by the Verdigris team is the "SUAOKI 222Wh Portable Generator Power Source CPAP Lithium Battery Pack Power Supply Silent 110V/60Hz".
