EURO-5V Linear Inline Adaptor

The EURO-5V is an inline DC-DC converter that generates a +5V power rail for modules that also require a +5V rail in addition to the standard +/-12V rails.
The standard configuration is as a `module only' adaptor in which the 5V is only available to the module that is connected to the adaptor.
In `loop-back' configuration the 5V rail is also fed back on to the busboard allowing other modules on the same busboard access to the 5V supply. In this configuration only 1 adaptor should be fitted per busboard.
The module is rated to in excess of 300mA.
Power for all models is derived from the +12V rail so you must ensure that your system power supply is suitably rated for the additional loading (typically 125mA).

ED122 Base Linear Power Unit

The ED122 Power Unit is a small compact board that takes a +15VDC supply and generates a linearly regulated +/-12V supply for powering your system. Outputs +12V @ 1A and -12V @ 600mA. The ED122 requires an external power supply of, nominally, 15VDC @ 2A and may be either a linear unit or an SMPS.
The ED122 has a few assembly options that allow it to be panel mounted or case mounted.
When purchasing this board you may need to add either our 4HP Power Panel or Power Plate to provide user access to the DC sockets, switch and status LED or provide your own solution.

PSU2 Linear Power Supply

This PSU is based on a common design using precision regulator i.c.s and provides +/-12V to +/-15V outputs. Some of the benefits of a 723 based design over those using the 78xx/79xx are:-

  • MUCH lower output noise
  • Better load regulation
  • Better line regulation

The Component Kit does NOT include the PCB.
Mains componentry (transformer, inlet, switch etc) need to be added to complete a functional unit.

PSU6 Heavy-duty 5V Supply

This small low-profile unit (maximum height < 11mm) can deliver 5V @ 3A making it ideal for systems incorporating modules that require a high warm-up 5V supply like the Metasonix R55.
PSU6 includes post linear regulation to provide a high quality, clean supply.
Input and output connections are by 1/4" quick-connect tabs.
Kit includes 0805-sized surface-mount components.
Requires a 9V to 15VDC supply.

PSU8 Mini Power Supply

A dual-rail power supply available in kit form (involves some SMD), as a pcb assembly (install in your own case) or as a stand-alone unit. Kits include PCB and all components to dress the board.
Input connections are via 1/4" quick-connect spades while the output is also available through 1/4" quick-connect spades or a 4-way 0.156" header.
Please refer to the PSU-8 Datasheet for output ratings.
The Enclosure Kit comprises a Hammond 1445C housing with a 2.5mm DC power in conenctor and a 4-way MIC power out connector.

PSU10 Power Supply

A dual-rail power supply available in kit form (involves some SMD), as a pcb assembly (install in your own case) or as a stand-alone unit. Kits include PCB and all components to dress the board.
Please refer to the PSU-10 Datasheet for output ratings.
To purchase the PSU-10 as a stand-alone unit you should select both the assembly required and the enclosure kit. We will then supply the unit fully assembled.
