The RS 1 Remote Power Supply is a general purpose AC to AC adapter designed to power any Rane products equipped with red AC remote power mod jacks. And since the output voltage is classified as safety extra-low voltage, then all units powered from this unit are exempt from safety agency approval requirements.
The table-top design of the RS 1, along with a 2 meter line cord and the 2 meter output cable, allows it to be installed in any convenient location away from the powered unit and the AC outlet strip. Convenient mounting tabs are integral to the rugged high impact housing. Tip: RS 1’s mount diagonally on standard EIA rack spacing (4").
Precautions: Daisychaining is acceptable only where balanced wiring is used exclusively, and the total current demand of all products being powered does not exceed the maximum output current rating. The connector wiring (see diagram) of the RS 1 allows for easy daisychaining. Plug a 6-wire modular wye adaptor (male to 2 females) into the first product to be powered. Connect the RS 1 output cable into one side of this adaptor, and then use another 6-wire mod cable from the other side of the adaptor to the next unit to be powered.
IMPORTANT: BOTH THE ADAPTOR AND THE CABLE MUST BE 6-WIRE; 4-WIRE VERSIONS WILL NOT WORK.
Caution—Thermal Switch Resetting If the thermal protection switch is activated (due to short circuit, etc.):
1. Remove the AC mains power.
2. Wait 15 minutes for the thermal switch to reach ambient temperature and reset itself.
3. Reapply AC mains power. Caution—Damage to the power supply will occur if this supply is plugged into older Rane products with DC (black color) power jacks. Use only with AC (red color) power jacks.
