Radial Engineering's PowerStrip™ is a three module rackmount power supply designed for use with their 500 series modular audio devices.

Unlike other single-space power racks that are limited to two modules, the 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 1/4" 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 synced 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.
