API 500 VPR for 500-Series Modules (10-Slot)

The API Model 500VPR is powered externally by a tri-polar power supply and is designed to accept API standard format 5.25" X 1.5" modules. The 500VPR is internally wired for PIN 2 hot, and comes with the API L200PS. The input/output jacks are both XLRs. The 500VPR can hold up to ten API modules. API makes several modules to fit this rack, including the 550A, 550b, 560, 525, and 512c. Like all API products, the 500VPR rack enjoys API's standard 5 year warranty.

NOTE: Older API 560A series equalizers used pin 15 for a "direct output" and must be disabled on the 560A circuit board edge connector by cutting a trace. This will eliminate 48 volts from damaging the 560A series equalizers.

The API L200PS supplies the power for both the 10 space 500VPR rack, and the 12 space L200R 200 series rack. Capable of powering ten API 500 series modules (or ten VPR-compliant modules), it delivers 2.15 amps of power to symmetrical +/- 16 volt rails. Featuring a totally linear design, its power is free of any artifacts which can arise out of switch-mode power supplies. Complete with current limiting and short-circuit protection, the L200PS provides consistently reliable, clean and quiet power.

The L200PS is covered by API's standard Five Year Warranty, and exhibits the reliability, long life, and uniformity which are characteristic of all API products.
