I will be fitting a RIO01 in an out building and would like to know if I can use an alternative PSU to power it up, Obviously it has to be 12V but what is the maximum ampere that it can accept and minimum? as it may need to be protected by an inline resetable fuse. Also can it use 12V DC as the power source as against a 12V AC power source?
Although it can possibly take the power from the main comfort panel, The main panel is not far of its maximum power output, and would rather avoid using that as a source and I cannot find any technical specs on max power input ect on the RIO01.

You need 12V DC (not AC) to power the RIOThe RIO will require less than 100 ma from the 12V power supply so any power supply which can provide more than that will do. Dont worry about the maximum ampereres, as RIO will not take more current than it required
Yiou can also use a Slave SEP01 to supply power to the RIO. The advatange of that is there will be a bacttery backup if you use a battery with the SEP
