API 1608 Power Supply Shutting Off???

I just installed an API 1608 with Automation. Everything was working great. Then the power supply tripped and shut off. It will come back on but only for about 30 seconds and shut back down. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We’re in the middle of a session.

Do you have it running to any sort of power conditioner? Maybe the new console is drawing more than it's rated for? Other than that, I would disconnect the power supply cable and make sure it's seated in there well. Do you have anything in the 500 slots, anything out of the ordinary? Also, try plugging it into a different outlet, preferably on that's on a different section.

I tried those things with the same results. Nothing in the 500 slots. Nothing unusual. I’ll get with API tomorrow. Thanks.

API will get you sorted.
