The 7U Case is completely made of aluminum. It offers a 1 U row and two 3 U rows for housing modules. Each is 104 HP wide. Threaded inserts allow the user to mount circuits with standard M3 screws. (No sliding nuts!) While transporting the cabinet, a lid protects the built-in module’s front panels. It is deep enough to close the case with cables patched in. A handle allows the user to easily carry the modular system. Retractable feet make it possible to use the cabinet in two different angles. Of course, it is also possible to lay the case flat on a table. For powering modules, a bus board, model TPS80W MAX, is built-in. Up to 20 modules can be connected. The circuit shines with high stability and precision plus it emits only very little noise. For feeding the bus board, Intellijel’s 7U case comes with a Meanwell Power Brick. It gets connected via a socket on the cabinet’s back. Additionally, there is an on / off switch. By adding the module Power Entry 1U to the system, DC input and control element can be relocated to the front. Other connectors comprise two audio inputs and outputs, a MIDI DIN trio plus a USB MIDI port. They can be used with the help of Intellijel’s Audio I/O 1U and µMIDI 1U modules.
The TPS80W MAX offers the following tech specs:
- 3 A at +12 V
- 3 A at -12 V
- 1.5 A at +5 V
The weight of the 7U case, including lid and power supply, is approximately three kilograms. (The weight given below refers to case, accessories and packaging material.)
The included power cord (Schuko plug / Type F) is suitable for many countries in Europe.
