New CIOKS Website Brings Future Power!
Welcome to the brand new CIOKS website and the first ever CIOKS blog post in the known ...Read more
Need more mA than a single outlet can provide. Use this Parallel adapter Flex to add currents from two same isolated outlets. Voltage and current rating of the outlets used must be exactly the same.
By using two isolated outlets the Parallel adapter Flex gives you the sum of max. currents of the two isolated outlets used. This adapter cable should be used in combination with any of CIOKS standard Flex cables if you need to power pedals with higher current needs. It gives you not only the higher current but also the possibility to choose the type of plug at the pedal end plus the cable length you need. The plug type and length is determined by the standard Flex cable used with the adapter Flex.
Please note that the Parallel adapter Flex makes a parallel connection of the two outlets used. These two outlets must be isolated from each other and MUST have the same voltage and preferably the same current rating. You get the sum of max. current ratings and the same voltage as the two outlets used. If you use it with two 9V outlets with 100mA rating each you’ll still get 9V but the double max. current which in this case is 200mA. If you use it with two 9V outlets with 200mA each you’ll get 9V and max. 400mA. Two 400mA outlets give you a max. total of 800mA.
This is an expample of how to use the Parallel adapter Flex with AC10 power supply. If you power an AC pedal using the last AC section of the AC10 power supply (outlet 9 or 10) and at the same time would like to power two Eventide pedals you’d need two isolated sources with a min. of 300mA and a voltage of 12V DC. One powerful outlet is available as outlet 6 with 12V DC and max. 600mA. The second powerful 12V DC source you’ll get by combining outlets 3 and 4 in a parallel connection using the Parallel adapter Flex. You set both outlets 3 and 4 to 12V DC with the setting switch on the back of the unit (pos. 3 and 4 set to ON) and plug the Parallel adapter Flex into these outlets. Connect the grey female RCA plug of the adapter Flex with the green male RCA plug of the type 4 standard Flex. The green DC plug goes into the Eventide’s adapter socket.
The above described method can be used to power any two high current pedals with the AC10 power supply and not only two Eventides. Just make sure to get the voltage and plug type right.
