The Mercury D Series G810 Rack System solves the biggest complaint for users of other '500 racks' in the marketplace, lack of power. Especially when using products that are not built to the specifications of the '500' standard. The products not built to that standard take more than their share of the power to work, which, in turn, causes problems with all other modules in the rack. This is not an issue with the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System.
The power specification for Mercury D Series G810 Rack System is much higher than the spec of the '500' Standard. Providing more power does not solve the power problems of '500' Racks, so, Mercury successfully designed a better Power Structure not just providing more amps/watts. Mercury designed the Mercury Power Regulation Circuit as a solution to '500' Rack power problems. The Mercury Power Regulation Circuit is not only in the rack, it is on every channel of the rack offering individual regulation per channel. The Mercury D Series G810 Rack System is the first '500' Rack to have this feature and is why we feel this is not only a better rack but a better system overall. The Mercury Power Regulation Circuit allows each channel to be isolated from the channel next to it or any other channel in the rack, which will protect from faults or emissions from problematic modules. No module in the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System shares DC power with another module in the rack.
In addition of the Mercury Power Regulation Circuit, there is also the Mercury Soft Start Circuit featured in the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System as well. The Mercury Soft Start Circuit allows power to 'ramp up' slowly and will gradually and gently apply voltage to your expensive D Series or '500 Series' modules when you power up. This is better for your modules as well it reduces the danger to woofers that could be damaged with 'turn-on' thump when part of a larger system.
Rock Solid Construction
The Mercury D Series G810 Rack System is simply built like a Tank. Like all Mercury Recording Equipment Co. products, the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System is engineered to be reliable and look good in your studio but built to be road-worthy.
On the back panel of the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System - I, there are Gold Pin XLRs (for channels 1-10) and DB25 (DSUB) connectors for channels 1-8 to give you choices of how you install your system. The Mercury D Series Line will have several choices of power supplies to be able to power a single rack or several in the future. The first is the Mercury D Series PSU-1. All Mercury D Series Power Supplies feature Studio Quality, Low Noise, Linear Power designed for Audio. The D Series PSU-1 Power supply is also rack mountable or can sit on the tabletop next to the rack or on the floor etc... You can also mount two D Series PSU-1 Power Supplies together as a dual 1U unit to save valuable rack space, and there are places for optional feet on the bottom if needed.
*You can use either or, but not both at the same time
Choosing between System I and System II:
Mercury D Series G810 Rack System I has all the features available in the G8 System. Mercury power structure, rack mountable or table top usability, G8 module compatible in slots 9 & 10, ground lift, chain for ch. 1-10, link ch. 1-10, XLR in/out for ch. 1-10 and DB25 for ch. 1-8.
"It is without question that Mercury reached our goal of building a more flexible, more innovative, more stable and more reliable way of using and especially powering '500 Modules.' The new Mercury Power Structure is a leap forward from the original '500' power structure."David Marquette, Marquette Audio Labs / Mercury Recording Equipment Co.
