Any way to wire my 24V Berd Air Pump up?

Need some help from you smart people out there. I have a 24v Berd air kit and the eSwitch that I purchased for another printer. I've since ditched that printer and now have my MK3. Wondering how/if I can make this work on with the Rambo, whilst avoiding any magic smoke coming from the board. Hopefully someone can help me get this going.

Link to Berd kit.

It's not difficult to add new connections to the 24 volt PSU terminal strip in the Einsy. I would be wary of adding any significant load on the PSU, as it seems marginal as it is. See the 54 pages of complaints about PSU failures in the "Hardware, firmware and software" forum.

I second this I would not add anything to the original PSU unless you are only going to be running this pump after the heating of the bed. How much current does it take because the power supply is only rated for 10 amps. I read the messages about the power supplies burning up so the first thing I did was order a meanwell 25 amp one yes it doesn't mount to the printer but I feel safer that I have more than double the current the printer will ever use. You could use the PSU pluigin and turn the pump on and off with the PI if you are using one for printing. You can even automate it.
