powering a hex zone with a wall wart.

Post by johnnymad » Tue Jan 12, 2010 2:06 pm

is this possible? i've shrunk my blacet rig to 6U and have to sell two modules that i'd really like to keep if i can't find a way to power my hex zone. the load on my blacet psu couldn't handle a 6U plus the hex. i want to put the hex in its own case and possibly add the new makenoise pressure points to the setup. should i just pick up a cheap power one or is there some kind of wall wart that would do the trick?

some good info here...

hex zone consumption is around 150mA, so anything over 300mA should be good.

thanks! i forgot about that one. i built one of the paia wall warts before and i blew one of the rails out. if the hex is the only thing only the mfos, i should be ok. i'm pretty sure i overloaded the paia supply.
