Pedal Power AC  -  176.76EUR

Pedal Power AC


2 pcs. 9VAC at 600mA

2 pcs. selectable 9/12VAC at 1200mA

Each output is short-circuit protected and completely isolated.

Toroidal transformer to insure hum and noise free operation.

Designed to operate high current and AC powered pedal effects, like the great Van Amps Sole-Mate, Boomerang pedals, Whammy, POD, Rotosphere and many others.

Cables Included

    4 pcs. 5.5 x 2.5mm barrel - red both ends.
    2 pcs. 5.5 x 2.1mm barrel - one end black.
    AC mains line powercord.

System Unit Description

    1. AC mains auxiliary. Note the 200 watt maximum rating.
    2. AC mains power input jack. This is a standard IECtype connector.

Pedal Power AC

    3. Power indicator. This LED indicates the Pedal Power AC system unit is operating.
    4. 9VAC output jacks (2). Each output provides up to 600mA.
    5. Selectable 9VAC/12VAC output jacks (2 sets). Use either jack from each set to select the correct voltage. Each output provides up to 1200mA.

Pedal Power AC

AC vs. DC. DC stands for Direct Current. This means that the flow of electricity is always in one direction. DC power connections will always have a polarity (like center negative or tip positive) because you need to specify which direction the electrical current should flow. AC stands for Alternating Current. This means the flow of electricity alternates, first in one direction, then back the other way. Since it always goes in both directions, there is no polarity and the plugs cant be wired backwards.

Connections. The Voodoo Lab Pedal Power AC has four outputs and six output jacks. These accept barrel type connectors and have a 2.5mm center pin. The two individual 9VAC outputs on the left will provide up to 600mA each. The two pairs of jacks on the right will provide up to 1200mA each at either 9VAC or 12VAC. Select the correct voltage by using the corresponding jack. You cant use both 9VAC and 12VAC from the same pair at the same time. It wont work. Dont even try.

Cables. Two different cable types are provided with the Pedal Power AC. The most common type has red connectors on both ends. The other type has red and black connectors. Red connectors are 2.5mm center and black are 2.1mm. Connect red ends to the Pedal Power AC. Most AC powered devices will also use the red 2.5mm plugs, however a few use black 2.1mm (the industry standard is to use 2.5mm for AC and 2.1mm for DC). Since the red plug has a hole to accomodate the 2.5mm pin, it will also fit over the smaller 2.1mm. Dont do this! It will appear to work, but since the connectors do not mate snugly, the connections will be unreliable. How can you tell which to use? Easy! Try the smaller black end first. If it fits, use it. If it doesnt, use a red one. Operation

Power Requirements Generally, the power requirement marked on the device matches the manufacturers supplied adapter. This does not indicate the actual current used, only the maximum available from the adapter. Often the same adapter is used for many different products. For example, the Line6 modeling pedals are marked 1200mA. In fact, all models as of this writing draw less than 200mA. As long as your device requires AC at 9V or 12V, just try it. You wont damage anything. Protection

Your Pedal Power AC is designed to be fault tolerant. This means that if you try to power a defective device or use a bad cable, it will simply turn off that output until the problem is corrected. Similarly, if you try to power something that requires more current than the Pedal Power AC can provide, it switches off only that output. As they say, the show must go on!

What is a toroidal transformer and why does my Pedal Power AC have one? Power transformers create a magnetic field that can induce hum and noise in your effects. A toroidal transformer has a specially designed core that greatly reduces this field. The Pedal Power AC uses this type of transformer so that your pedal board is quiet.
