The Radial Workhorse Powerstrip 3 Slot Rackmount Power Rack is a three module rackmount power supply offering a triple-module design to build your own channel strip with the components you need. Combine a mic preamp with an equalizer and throw on a compressor-limiter or mix and match your favorite modules and put them in a single space (RU) 19 inch rack.
Radial Workhorse Powerstrip 3 Slot Rackmount Power Rack Features
- Single RU power rack houses three 500 series modules
- Designed to create the ultimate input strip
- Compatible with Radial and older API systems
- Provides up to 500 mA of shared current
Construction begins with 14 gauge steel and features dual gold contact EDAC 15-pin connectors for optimal signal transfer. To maximize headroom, the external supply delivers 500mA of current for voltage hungry modules plus a separate 48V phantom tap delivers 10mA of current for microphone preamps.
Rear panel connectivity includes standard XLRs for each slot along with 1/4 inch TRS connectors for connecting modules, cross patching and parallel processing. Instead of the traditional 'hardwire patch' system employed by others, The PowerStrip employs an innovative feed function that patches modules together in series without the need of cables.
Stereo modules no longer need to be soldered to be paired, they can now be sync'd together using a simple switch. The PowerStrip is also equipped with Omniport on each sot. This TRS jack enables the module manufacturer to implement a unique function for a given module such as a key input on a gate.
Following the criteria established by the Radial Workhorse, the PowerStrip is 100% backwards compatible with older API modules while being optimized for Radial's expanding range of preamps, processors and routing devices.
The PowerStrip makes it easy to assemble a variety of modules to create the ultimate channel strip and the compact single RU design opens the door for use in both studio and concert touring.
