Whether you are an international touring musician, or a weekend warrior, you should be very concerned with the power you are supplying to your pedals.....and because you are, the Carl Martin "DC Factory" Power Supply was designed just for you!
With the constant addition of very 'power hungry' digital pedals on the market, we designed the DC Factory to address that very need. Highly powered and totally noise free, the DC Factory doesn't take up too much realestate on your pedalboard and literally weighs about 2/3 of a kilogram (1.5 lbs). To meet these goals, we had to forget about the standard toroidal transformers and design a fully digital switch mode power supply! The benefits go beyond ample power, the size and weight are reduced and most importantly, there is no radiation of hum to Wah pedals or certain analog drive pedals.
Inside the attractive grey anodized housing are 5 x 100% isolated and separated, 500 mA power supplies, four with two 9v DC output jacks, and 1 with two 12v DC output jacks. These 10 output jacks supply a massive 2500mA of pure clean power for your effects. Most digital pedals require somewhere between 300-400mA of power, and your standard analogue pedals somewhere around 20-50mA, so you have the option to run up to 5 analog pedals and 5 digital pedals simultaneously! On top of that, using the Current Doubler Cable, you can plug into 2 DC Outputs (as shown in the diagram) for 18v of power! The DC Factory is fine to use on any pedal board or on it's own, but it is also compatible with PedalTrain PT-VDL-MK (mounting brackets not included).
Power supply set up
The DC Factory can power up to 5 digital pedals when you plug one of each into the five separated and isolated digital power supplies, and also 5 analogue effects when you plug them into the second jack in each of the 5 power supplies, as long as the power demand for the two pedals in each PSU does not exceed 500mA.
