The Disaster Area Deisgns DVC-18 is a micro-sized voltage converter unit.
Simply plug a 9 V power source into the input, and the DVC-18 will output up to 100 mA of clean 18 V power. Many pedals are compatible with an 18 V power supply, in some cases the higher voltage results in greater headroom or more total volume output.
Consult with the manufacturer for each pedal you wish to power with the DVC-18, Disaster Area Designs will not be held liable for any damage that may result from an overvoltage condition.
The DVC-18 normally doubles the input voltage. A 9 V input will result in an 18V output, while a 12 V input will produce a 24 V output.
The DVC-18 is also available with a lower-voltage regulated output (12 V or 15 V versions.) The lower voltage versions should be run on a 9 V input only.
- Compact size: 2 x 2 x 0.83 in and small enough to fit under a Pedaltrain Nano or Mini board
- 100 mA maximum output
- 12 V maximum input (the DVC-18 will output 24 V from a 12 V input)
- 2.1 mm x 5.5 mm DC barrel jack input and output
