Question: What is the part number or where do I get a replacement power adapter for this ACS1208AL
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

There were two different power adapters made for the ACS1208L - a 1 pin or a five pin adapter. The 1 pin should be available (List price $20.00) however the 5 pin is no longer available.

If you have the 5 pin version, personally I would suggest to upgrade to the Aten CS1808.

If you have a 1 pin version and would like to procure the adapter, please feel free to contact your KVM Switches Online sales reprasentative directly at 1-877-586-6654, at, or via our online Chat functionality.
