NOT A DIY PRODUCT – BUILT AND TESTED BY 4MS IN PORTLAND, OR, USA

Row Power is a clean, regulated, and protected power solution for eurorack systems.
Row Power 30 provides 30W of power, suited for any typical eurorack row (+12@1.5A/-12@.75A/5@.5A)
Row Power 40 provides 40W of power, suited for up to two typical eurorack rows (+12@1.5A/-12@1.3A/5@1.5A)

Simply plug a laptop style power supply into either of the barrel plugs on the 4HP panel. Connect your modules via flying-bus cables, or connect the Row Power to a Distro Board.

Daisy-chain multiple Row Powers (i.e. one black module and one white module) to use a single power brick for multiple rows. Each row will be independently regulated and protected for ultra-low cross-talk between rows. Rows can also be hot-swapped (plugged/unplugged without powering the whole system down).

Note that the Flying Bus Cables come individually. You need two per row.

In a typical system, a good rule of thumb is that a single PSU brick will power 3 x Row Power 40’s (black) or 4 x Row Power 30’s (white). Typically it will power more than that but for a very demanding system such as an LZX video rig, or a heavy metasonix system, this rule of thumb will hold.

SYSTEM EXAMPLES

For any system you need at least these four items

  • One Module (Black or White)
  • One Distribution device (BusStick or Flying Bus Cable)
  • One PSU Brick
  • One PSU Cord

Then optionally if you want to daisy chain multiple row power modules you need

  • A Link Cable – DC Jumper

EXAMPLE 1

A single row (up to 104hp) of Eurorack in a Thonk Skiff.

  • One White 30 Row Power Module
  • One Male Bus Cable
  • One PSU Block
  • One PSU Cord (EU, UK or USA)

EXAMPLE 2

Three rows (up to 104hp) of Eurorack in a closed case.

  • One White 30 Row Power Module
  • One Black 40 Row Power Module
  • Three BusSticks
  • One PSU Block
  • One PSU Cord (EU, UK or USA)
  • One DC Jumper Cable

BusStick Or Flying Bus Cable?

If you have a Thonk Skiff or other open enclosure:

  • If you don’t ever move it or gig it – Flying Male Bus Cable or BusStick
  • If you move it round your home or take it to friends houses – Flying Male Bus Cable (tidier, less likely to get accidentally detached)
  • If you regularly gig – Don’t use an open Skiff!

If you have a enclosed case:

  • We recommend a BusStick or consider Bus Boards if you DIY
  • A Male Flying Bus Cable will be good if you don’t re-arrange modules a lot

BusStick Further Info

The Bus Stick is a sturdy board with 14 power headers.

The Bus Stick attaches to your case using adhesive pads (included), or by drilling/screwing. There are no metal or conductors on the bottom of the Bus Stick, so there’s no danger of it shorting out to your metal case (therefore, no standoffs are needed!).
BusStickPins

The shrouded header version sits 12mm from the base of the adhesive pads and the bare pin header version sits 13mm from the base.

The Bus Stick extends your existing bus board solution using a standard 16-pin cable (included).
Simply plug your modules’ power cables
directly to the Bus Stick.BusStickShrouded

This is a durable and easy-to-use power distribution solution. It also allows for maxumum clearance in the area of your case where the Bus Stick is not installed.
