|Introducing CIOKS 10 professional range|
After almost 20 years in power supply business we decided to use all our knowledge and experience to design a professional range of dedicated solutions for powering effect pedals. Today, in the beginning of year 2010, we release three new products named DC10, AC10 and TC10. The list of technical features and design details is quite long, so to say it short; you'll get a top notch solution for powering your pedals when choosing one of the products in this high end range.
Using high quality components we stuffed loads of power in a small volume and packed it all in a flat and compact steel enclosure with 2mm thick top. The overall design is durable and road ready able to withstand many years of touring.
CIOKS DC10 model has 10 regulated and well filtered DC outlets configured in 8 isolated sections. With a total of 1.600mA it's a perfect solution for bigger rigs only with pedals using a DC power source. Its three powerful sections with 400mA each will power pedals with special requirements like those from TC Electronic Nova series, Eventide Factor series, MoogerFoogers, Radial Tonebone or others without the need of custom cables. Selectable with a switch the DC10 offers voltages 9, 12 and 15V DC and combined with the included Stack Flex also 18 and 24V DC.
The second member of the professional range is CIOKS AC10. It has two powerful AC sections with 800mA each and offers voltages 9, 12 and 16V AC. If you have one or two pedals in your setup, which requires an AC power source, the AC10 is the right choice. It powers all vacuum tube pedals from Electro-Harmonix, Blackstar HT series, the Whammy or JamMan from DigiTech, Tube Rotosphere, Tubeman, Tube Factor or Replex from Hughes & Kettner or EBS Valve Drive just to mention a few. If you only have one AC pedal, you can convert one of the AC sections into a powerful DC section offering 600mA with voltages 9, 12 and 15V DC.
The Danish company TC Electronic is very popular with their Nova pedal series for guitar players and TCHelicon VoiceTone series for vocalists. CIOKS TC10 power supply is specially designed for musicians who are big fans of these TC boxes and is able to power four of them alongside with standard 9V pedals.
All members of CIOKS professional power supply range utilize toroidal transformers for high efficiency and low noise operation. The transformers are additionally equipped with a magnetic shield to minimize the emission of magnetic field. All outlets are short circuit (and overload) protected. CIOKS advanced LED monitoring is a unique feature used on each isolated section giving the user full overview in a short glance.
All three models have selectable mains input voltage for 115 and 230V standards* and detachable power cord, which can be obtained in different lengths and mains plugs. Another unique design feature is including the mains connector inside the volume of the enclosure. In that way you save some space and hide a rather ugly detail. Each power supply is sold including 16 Flex cables and a mounting kit for easy attachment on a pedal board. We offer 3 years standard warranty, which is extendable for free to 5 years after online product registration on CIOKS web site.
* For the Japanese market we make a 100V version without the mains selector switch.
