Beccara: It's not yours to change, It's owned by the LFC and if your ONT ever dies and you've messed with the PSU you could be in for a bill for the ONT


Thank god we have people like you around here to save us from ourselves.




Really? Its only basic off the shelf adapter.  I'm not exactly trying to re-wire the internals of chorus's equipment.  The chances of a different PSU damaging their equipment would be pretty low. If it happened I'd pay for it.  


It may be off the shelf - but its been matched with their ONT by the LFCs and at around $300 for a replacement ONT - I think you will find buying a shorter extn cord cheaper smile


May have to go this way with the different connection. Have found a 0.5m extension which I'll velcro up and see If I can hide it next to the ont.

For Chorus, using anything other than the supplied power supply voids warranty.

You can use a 240v UPS and the ONT power supply.
You cannot use a 12V DC UPS.
This is quite clear in our documentation for installers.

Of course you can use a different length cable on the 240V of the power supply.

I'd like to know the plug type too, for my DC UPS when I get around to it. I'm happy to pay for a replacement if I break it, of course.

timmmay: I'd like to know the plug type too, for my DC UPS when I get around to it. I'm happy to pay for a replacement if I break it, of course.


If you're really that keen, the closest I would say is an 8-pin PCI-e power connection with only the two pins on the left used (up to you to find the polarity):
EDIT: According to diagram on ONT power adapter; top left is negative (PIN5) and bottom left is positive (PIN1) - which is consistent with PCI-e pin-out so you could most likely just use a PC power supply (as long as the remaining 6-pins don't blow up the ONT).



Two of those little female breadboard jumper dodacky connections would probably work just as well:



Actual plug here:

All of these posts on here about people wanting to do non-standard stuff is making me laugh.

If you want to change something just bloody do it! Just don't tell Chorus and don't post it on a public forum and don't expect sympathy if/when you blow the equipment up.

Put in a shorter cable today and tided a few things up. Can probably live with this.  Now the ONT is taking up a powerpoint I'll have to sort a multiboard for the NAS.

Why not install a 4-outlet powerpoint?
You have enough room to install it vertically.

That's an excellent install. Looks very tidy.

I hate that big ugly thing Chorus are using for feeding the phone back. It's so enormous!!

Excellent choice of router too :-D

Could go with a piggyback IEC cable.


Or assuming your NAS takes IEC too, a "Y" cable or adapter (F to MM):



However I'd go with @Sideface's suggestion of a 4-outlet powerpoint; or just a double adapter.
