The Five Amp is a throwback to our original 5A Power Supply with some upgrades. It uses a quality 12V brick for the +12V power regulation instead of a +12V converter. The plus side of doing it this way is that whatever amperage the -12V and +5V rails are not using can be used by the +12V rail, which always draws the most of the three.
Five Amp comes in three different power configurations. We recommend selecting an option based upon your -12V rail draw. For a rule of thumb, Red (with red LEDs) will power a single row of 84 or 104HP, Green will power two rows of 104HP, and Blue will power three to four rows of 104HP.
- Multiple power options to fit your needs and budget:
- RED: Power one row of 104HP.*
- GREEN: Power two rows of 104HP.*
- BLUE: Power three to four rows of 104HP.*
- Advanced low-noise, fully-regulated voltage converters on the -12V and +5V rail
- Over-current protection: shuts off each power rail automatically if modules use too much current on that rail
- Two 16-Pin Eurorack power connectors, keyed for safety
- Molex quick-release connector for easy install of Synthrotek Noise Filtering Distribution Boards
- USB jack for powering an iPhone, Beat Step Pro, etc.
- Requires 12V power brick (input voltage 12V), DC Input Jack size: 2.1mm
- Module Width: 4HP
- Module Depth: 46mm
