Power Distribution for a 3U - Confused
« on: May 28, 2022, 03:55:04 am »
Hi - I am hoping someone can help. I have about 924 mA that I am wishing to put into my Rackbrute 3U case. The specs say that there is 1600 mA available on on two separate circuits.... what does that mean?  Are these two circuits distributed amongst the 20 plugs?  A bit confused.

On my 6U - it is pretty clear - they are divided up into the two rails - 20 slots and the 15 slots... so that is easy. But I am just no sure about the 3U unit how to access the rest of the power or is it just available on the main 20 plug rail - doesn't sound like it?  Thanks in advance!  There is a picture of attached of the specs that I am confused about below (if you are logged in)

Maybe it means there is one circuit for + and one for -, 800 mA each? I know that's not what it says though. Or maybe half the plugs are one circuit, and the other half are on another?

Yes Arturia got back to me and the answer was basically for the 3U Rackbrute, "don't worry about it" - there is 1600 mA available. The 6U is different. So I didn't worry about it and it seems to work fine with the 930 mA of modules in that unit.

How did you reach out to them? I've yet to hear back on a web form I submitted about 1.5 weeks ago.

It was a while ago but I am pretty sure it was through the "TECH SUPPORT" form... but it did take a while for a response - a few weeks I think.
