Overview:

Connect the power supply and turn your OT-2 on for the first time!

Materials Needed:

  • Power Supply: 36V - 10A

Procedure:
Connect the power supply to the wall. It has an LED that indicates it is receiving power correctly. When connecting the power supply to the robot, make sure it is in the correct orientation. Locate the power supply connector on the rear left-hand side and power on using the power switch.

What to Expect:

It takes several minutes for the robot to completely power on before you can connect to it. You'll know the robot has powered on successfully after:

  1. You see the blue light on the front of the robot blink.
  2. You see the blue light turn solid.
  3. You hear mechanical noises from the robot as the pipette mounts home.

If the blue light on the front of the robot does not turn solid after the robot has been powered on for more than five minutes, contact Opentrons Support for help.
