Radial Engineering PowerStrip 3-Slot 500 Series Rack

Three slot rack-mount 500 Series powered rack
MFR# R700 0105

Product Description

The Radial Engineering PowerStrip is a three module rack-mount powered rack designed to bring the fun and excitement of 500 Series modular audio to everyone!
Unlike other single-space power racks that are limited to two modules, the innovative triple-module design allows you to put together a traditional channel strip, combining a mic preamp with an equalizer and dynamic control using a compressor-limiter all within the confines of a single RU 19" rack. With so many choices of modules available today, this opens the door to creating unique signal paths to allow your music to stand out.

Following the criteria established by the Radial Workhorse, the PowerStrip is 100% backwards compatible with older API modules while being optimized for Radial's expanding range of preamps, processors and routing devices. Construction begins with 14 gauge steel and features dual gold contact EDAC 15-pin connectors for optimal signal transfer. To maximize headroom, the external supply delivers 500mA of current for voltage hungry modules plus a separate 48V phantom tap delivers 10mA of current for microphone preamps. Rear panel connectivity includes standard XLRs for each slot along with ¼" TRS connectors for multing modules, cross patching and parallel processing. Instead of the traditional 'hardwire patch' system employed by others, The PowerStrip employs an innovative feed function that patches modules together in series without the need of cables. And stereo modules no longer need to be soldered to be paired, they can now be sync'd together using a simple switch. The PowerStrip is also equipped with Omniport on each slot. This TRS jack enables the module manufacturer to implement a unique function for a given module such as a key input on a gate.

The PowerStrip makes it easy to assemble a variety of modules to create the ultimate channel strip and the compact single RU design opens the door for use in both studio and concert touring.

Features:

  • Single RU power rack houses three 500 Series modules
  • Designed to create the ultimate input strip
  • Compatible with Radial and older API systems
  • Provides up to 500 mA of shared current

Works great, only niggle is power cable is not super secure. Using in a portable rack and 4 out of 5 times the jostling loosens the power xlr. Other than that very well made.

Well I now have four of these 1U Radial Workhorse Powerstrip's because my first one has worked without a problem. It's a simple unit with nice features to accommodate all 500 series modules. There is a Phantom power switch to turn off Phantom power for modules that don't need it. An Omni Port for modules that can utilize this port and a stereo link switch to link modules in stereo and a feed switch for creating recording or mixing chains. It provides 500ma so there's no issue properly powering your modules. It's well made and has some weight to it. The only thing I wish it had was a power switch so it's always on when you power your rack but I solved this problem by connecting them to an on and off switch I connect to my Furman. I highly recommend the Radial Powerstrip.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
