By using two isolated outlets this parallel adapter Flex gives you the sum of max. currents of the two isolated outlets used. This adapter cable should be used in combination with any of CIOKS standard Flex cables if you need to power pedals with higher current needs. It gives you not only the higher current but also the possibility to choose the type of plug at the pedal end plus the length you need. The plug type and length is determined by the standard Flex cable used with the adapter Flex.
Note: the parallel adapter Flex makes a parallel connection of the two outlets used. These two outlets must be isolated from each other and MUST have the same voltage. You get the sum of max. current ratings and the same voltage as the two outlets have. If you use it with two 9V outlets with 100mA each you’ll still get 9V but the double max. current which in this case is 200mA. If you use it with two 9V outlets with 200mA each you’ll get 9V and max. 400mA. If you use it with two 800mA outlets you’ll get a total of max. 1.600mA.
Examples of usage:
Powering two Eventide pedals with CIOKS AC10 power supply
If you power an AC pedal using the last AC section of the AC10 power supply (outlet 9 or 10) and at the same time would like to power two Eventide pedals you’d need two isolated sources with a min. of 3-400mA and a voltage of 12V DC to do so. One powerful outlet is available as outlet 6 with 12V DC and max. 600mA. The second powerful 12V DC source you’ll get by combining outlets 3 and 4 in a parallel connection using the parallel adapter Flex. You set both outlets 3 and 4 to 12V DC with the setting switch on the back of the unit (pos. 3 and 4 set to ON) and plug the parallel adapter Flex into these outlets. Connect the grey female RCA plug of the adapter Flex with the green male RCA plug of the type 4 standard Flex. The green DC-plug goes into the Eventide’s adapter socket.
The above described method can be used to power any two high current pedals with the AC10 power supply and not only two Eventides. Just make sure to get the voltage and plug type right.
Powering Line6 M9 or M13 Stompbox Modeler with CIOKS AC10
These pedals need a 9V AC supply voltage and a quite high current around 1.200-1.400mA to operate which is too much for a single 800mA section of CIOKS AC10 power supply. However by using two isolated 9V AC outlets of the AC10 which yield a max. current of 800mA each (outlets 7 and 9) and a combination of the parallel adapter Flex and the green type 4 standard Flex with a 5.5/2.5mm centre positive DC-plug you’ll be able to power one of these pedals with CIOKS AC10 power supply. When the two AC sections are fully used to power the Line6 modeler you still have four isolated outlets with a total of 600mA and voltage both options 9 and 12V DC free for other pedals.
