With more and more Eurorack modules requiring +5V to power
digital circuitry, having +5V available in
modular cases is becoming increasingly important. The Kilpatrick
Audio KBOX Enclosure / Power Supply comes
with a +5V as standard, but many manufacturers still only
provide +12V and -12V. Thus we created the KONVERTER.
By using the latest in power technology, the KONVERTER draws
only 260mA from your +12V supply, yet produces a full 500mA on its
+5V output. With more than 80% efficiency, this means that the
draw on your existing supply is minimal, and nearly no heat is
produced by the module itself.
The entire module is only 1.0" W x 1.3" H and 0.5"
thick. Simply plug it into your existing 16 pin Doepfer-style
power bus board and all outputs will now provide +5V to modules
which need it.
