Power supply & bus board with 8 connectors for Eurorack modules
Notes: A-100SSB is a combination of power supply and bus board with 8 connectors for A-100 modules, planned for applications with up to 8 modules and a max. current of 380 mA.
- Wide range mains voltage input 100-240V AC / 50-60 Hz
- IEC inlet on board for the connection of a suitable mains cable (a suitable mains cable has to be purchased by the customer locally, it's not included with the A-100SSB)
- Switching supply with +12V/380 mA and -12V/380mA for the operation of A-100 modules up to 380 mA total supply current
- Safety cover at the bottom side (covers all elements that lead mains voltage)
- On board fuse
- 8 bus connectors
- LED displays for +12V, -12V and +5V
- Dimensions: about 270 mm (length) x 55 mm (width) x 35 mm (height)
- Several 3mm holes for mounting the unit on a rear panel or bottom plate
Notes: The A-100BUS from Doepfer is a simple passive busboard for use with Eurorack modules. It features 14 power headers along with three sets of spade terminals for connection to power supplies such as the Doepfer PSU3 and daisy-chaining with other A-100 bus boards.
An assembled and tested bus board, 22 sockets, e.g. for customers who want to built their own case and need a bus board for A-100 modules, includes cables for connection to +/-12V power supply (4 wires with flat connectors on both ends, length about 30cm), but no mechanical parts (e.g. screws, spacers, nuts, washers).
In the new version of the A-100 bus board (labeled Version 6 / 2019) boxed pin headers are used which are equipped with a reverse protection (gap for the "nose" of the socket of the bus cable). When the bus cable coming from the module is connected to the boxed header in question the "nose" has to point to the right. The polarity of the cable is correct if the red wire of the bus cable then points to the bottom (to the continuous line labeled"RED WIRE" on the pc board). If this is not the case please do not connect the module to the bus board ! Otherwise both the module and the power supply (A-100PSU3) may be damaged ! In that case please contact the manufacturer of the module and ask for a suitable bus cable with the correct polarity of the connector.
The bus cables of original A-100 modules manufactured by Doepfer are equipped with suitable bus cables since 2012. Only for older A-100 modules manufactured before 2012 it may happen that the polarity of the 16 pin female connector of the bus cable is wrong (nose points to the left when red wire points to the bottom). This is because in the past unboxed pin headers were used and the position of the "nose" did not matter. In such a case please contact Doepfer or one of their dealers and order a suitable bus cable.
Notes: The A-100LC1v is a smaller version of the A-100LC3 with 48 HP of space. It is made out of raw wood, a black coating gives the Eurorack frame a vintage look. The built-in power supply, type A-100SSB, delivers up to 380 mA at +12 V and -12 V as well as 100 mA at +5 V.
The A-100LC1v comes equipped with one 48 HP measuring row for 3U modules. Its power supply features eight connectors for oscillators, filters and so forth. The case is connected to the grid via an IEC power socket.
