CIOKS Schizophrenic link is a small sized power supply for effect pedals with a versatility yet not seen in such a small unit. It has 6 isolated outlets and offers voltages 9, 12 and 18V with no need of special Flex cables. The first two outlets can be set to 18V, where the last two are configurable to 12V. If needed all 6 outlets will give you 9V DC in the default position of the settings switch with a total max. output current of 1.000mA.

Outlets 1 and 2 can individually be set to either 9 or 18V. Each of these two will power any MXR/Dunlop pedal, which needs 18V, and most of the Pigtronix ones. The few Pigtronix pedals, which need more than 100mA @ 18V like PolySaturator, Disnortion or the FAT Drive, you can power by using outlets 1 & 2 with the Parallel adapter Flex followed by a standard black type 1 Flex. All dirt pedals, which can take 18V and usually draw less than 100mA, can be powered by one of the outlets 1 or 2. These two outlets can of course also be used to power standard 9V pedals in the default setting.

Outlets 3 and 4 delivering max.200mA at 9V DC are each able to power medium current draw pedals like BOSS DD-20 or CE-20, the digital ones from Electro-Harmonix like Freeze, Cathedral, Citar or the RingThing, tc electrinic Flashback X4 Delay and all the small Strymons just to mention a few. The last two outlets also put out max. 200mA each, but here you can individually choose the voltage for each outlet to either 9 or 12V. These two outlets, when set to the default 9V, will also power the pedals mentioned just before. In the 12V setting outlets 5 and 6 will each power one 4-button Line6 modeling pedal like e.g. the DL4 or MM4. You can power four medium current draw pedals at voltages 9 or 12V using CIOKS Schizophrenic link outlets 3-6.

CIOKS Schizophrenic link is also able to power two high current pedals. Outlets 5 & 6 when both in 12V setting and when using with Parallel adapter Flex will power any tc electronic Nova, tc Helicon or Eventide pedal. Two big Strymon pedals can be powered with Schizophrenic link by using two Parallel adapter Flex and outlet pairs 3 & 4 plus 5 & 6 still having outlets 1 and 2 free for other low current pedals. So any two Eventides, tc Nova or big Strymons or any one of the first mentioned plus two small Strymons are also possible options.

Older Electro-Harmonix pedals like e.g. the Q-Tron, the Worm, Micro Synthesizer, Deluxe Memory Man or Electric Mistress, where the original adapter was unregulated 24V will be powered correctly with a series connection of 18V and 9V. You should use the Series adapter Flex followed by the green type 4 Flex connected to outlet 1 set to 18V and outlet 2 at the default 9V setting. For these you can also use the type 4 Stack Flex.

Combining outlets 3 and 4 using the Series adapter Flex will give you enough current at 18V to power the older Electro-harmonix POG or Holier Grail.

Courtesy AC mains outlet and link feature
This power supply, like the other from CIOKS link range, features a courtesy AC mains outlet. The unique position of the courtesy outlet and the AC mains input allows you to link two or more units together by means of an adapter. In this way you can power two or three power supplies just with one single mains power cord. You can combine different power supplies to obtain a custom power bank matching your specific needs. The courtesy AC mains outlet can of course be used for other purposes than linking products from CIOKS link range. The last unit in the chain will always have the courtesy outlet free to your disposition. Have a look at CIOKS universal mains adapter as a nice accessory to be used with this mains AC outlet.

Outlet 1-2: 9V DC / 100mA each

CIOKS Universal Mains Adapter - MAda

This video shows how to mount and use CIOKS universal mains adapter. This adapter converts the IEC C13 courtesy AC mains outlet of a Link power supply into a wall outlet style socket of EU, US, or UK type for use below the pedalboard and another one avaliable from the top of the pedalboard of EU and US type. Very useful accessory if you run short of outlets and would like to use one or two of your pedal’s original adapters.
