Hello, everyone, since I've only recently started in the 5u World, I d like to help...
You're telling me cable takes to attack the Oakley modules at the psu board curetronic?
Module Oakley

Psu board Curetronic

You'll need one of these:
http://curetronic.com/product/dotcom-adapter-cable/

(Or you can build your own...)

Is Curetronic still in business? I thought their website was dead for a while...

Curetronic.com It's still active.
Thanks So are those good?
I'll take them.

Yes, the Oakley MU format modules use the Dotcom power connectors.

If you have Curetronic power distribution (as you showed in the picture), that cable will connect it to your new Oakley module. thumbs up

Quote:
Ribbon Cable 50cm from Curetronic to DOTCOM
Connects a module with a synthsizer.com compatible power connector with the Curetronic bus board.


Glad to know that Curetronic is still in business! They have some very interesting modules, but they are very uncommon in the US, and none of my continental European friends have 5U systems...

And plastilina, if you are going to add several non-Curetronic 5U modules to your system another way to do it would be to add a small DotCom style distribution board like the AnalogCraftsman acBus and. You would connect it to your Curetronic power supply and then use DotCom to DotCom cables between the board and modules.

You just have to screw?

Yes, you would just need to strip the ends of the wire, insert into the connectors and then screw them down. Similar to the picture below:

Hey John
what capacitor value do they use ?
(cause I'm just building my own supply board)

cheers

I don't have any out to look at but I think it was something small, like 10 to 220 uF . . .sorry I can't remember.

I just took a look at a couple older Synth Tech distro boards and they use 330 uF caps for the + and - 15v rails and a 470 uF cap for the +5v rail.

Literally just got a batch this morning - they're 22uf.

The exact value wouldn’t be critical. The capacitors are there to help smooth out the rail voltages should there be any fluctuations/noise. You’ll see that most modules actually have two capacitors on board next to the power header for this same reason. If you have a larger load or more modules are hooked up to the distribution board, a larger value cap should be used, if only a few modules, then a smaller value is fine. Again, it’s not too critical.
