Lost my fireface 400 power supply! can i get a non rme power supply?

Hi,im selling my ff400 and found out i lost the power supply (i used bus power).
Any way the original rme power supply is: Input: 100 - 240V~ 50/60 Hz 0,5 A,
And it costs like 50 euro wich is alot IMO.

My question is:can i get a non rme power supply (with the same specs) and know that it 100% wont damage my ff400 (ill feel really bad cause im selling it to a friend).

Thanks alot!

If you must know 100%, call RME support; I hear good things about their customer service in general...

RME: Support

They may tell you that you have to use their proprietary power supply, but like most manufacturers, they may not make their own anyway, but rather get them from another supplier, in which case you simply have to match the specs and the polarity of the connector for a replacement. Make sure the supply is rated to match the unit's draw, in volts and / or milliamps, and that the center pin matches positive or negative.

When the power supply in my FF800 blew, they told me that they could service it at their place or I could just buy one and put it in myself. The one I bought was very reasonably priced (I couldn't have found an off brand for less) and it took me something like 15 minutes to put it in. Do yourself a favor and contact them first.
