In which case if the lpro needs +24, then use a buck-boost 12-24V DC-DC converter.

Ground is chassis ground as far as I remember, and the LPRO was bolted straight on the chassis.

Doable, but surely chassi ground of the LPRO is also tied to electrical ground? Last time I looked around, it sure looked like things where tied to chassi too.

If so you need to electrically isolate the whole LPRO. The 10 MHz is easy enough with a transformer. The control signals would not be too hard.

Another solution is to let the -12 V lead also be chassi... which works but is prone to errors...

Cheers,
