The camera cables are a different connector and pinout on the MDR1. Power and motor connectors are the same. MDR1 doesn't have torque settings and has to recalibrate after losing power.

Some MDR-1s don't have to recalibrate after loosing power.

I have 2 ancient ones and they have that "fix" prevented that.

MDR-1 I have had to have a small converter box I think it made unit 12 v.

So answer was I never had any delay.

The box converts 12 to 24 volts, it's a booster. The Mdr operates at 24 v. The start/stop connector is bigger than on the Mdr2.

Microwave MDR-1 has a built in voltage booster so has no problem with 12v. Only the older UHF MDR-1 needs the converter box.

If you email or call Preston, they will be glad to give you all the info you need. It's better than getting it second hand.
