New Doepfer Power Supply A-100PSU3

Post by Etan » Fri Oct 30, 2015 4:19 am

There is a beefy power supply coming from Doepfer in November.

specs are 2000mA@+12V, 1200mA@-12V and additional +5V with 4000mA

This is from Doepfer mailing list:
And there is an additional note in this regard: from about end of November a new power supply will be available (A-100PSU3). It will
offer 2000mA@+12V, 1200mA@-12V and has additional +5V with 4000mA available. It turned out that there are many modules from other
manufacturers available that take more current than A-100 modules (e.g. the new Roland modules). Some of them also require a high
current at +5V. Internally the A-100PSU3 is a +/-15V switching supply (wide range input 100...240V for mains voltage) followed by
the classical linear regulation circuit of the A-100PSU2 that generates required +12V and -12V. Only the +5V is a pure switching
supply without linear regulation. We discovered that a pure 12V switching supply was not good enough for the modular system
(especially the load regulation was not satisfying for all 12V switching supplies we tried). That's why we added the well-tried
linear regulation to the 15V switching supply.

Best wishes

So very excited about this :party:

Any chance that it could be a direct, drop-in replacement for the older A-100PSU2 that comes with the current Doepfer cases? Too early to ask?

It would be great if it could do the same for the A-100PSU1. I've got at least 2 old G6s with them that would love an upgrade. :bananaguitar:

I hope it can be a drop-in replacement as well!!! Be even better if there was a trade-in/upgrade option from sellers because what are people going to do with their PSU2s if replaceable with the new???

I bought a P9 a week or so ago.
Maybe I'll write to Herr Doepfer and see if he cut me a deal

Yeah, 4 Amps on the 5 Volt rail seems excessive.
But everyone seems to love Doepfer power!
That's the most diabolical looking piece of equipment I've ever seen.

Also mentions its a switcher this time instead of linear. Never used a linear myself but I recall people saying they chose doepfer because it was linear. :despair:

This is great timing. I've been wanting something like this. Hopefully one will be perfect for something like the lc9.

good for power hungry modules - like the classic AS rs-370 and probably the new upcoming oscillope modules

+5V is switching, +/-12V still linear.
