Link power supply

  • (French below)

    I'd like to reduce the number of power chords in my setup (one synth, a couple pedals and controllers). I'm considering one of those power supplies :
    My question is: how could I plug the Link to one of those? What is the current and voltage it uses, and is there an adapter to plug its USB port to a "standard" power port?


    Pour réduire le nombre de câbles d'alimentation de mon bureau, je pense acheter un boîtier d'alimentation multiple de ce type :
    Est-ce qu'il est possible d'alimenter le Link par ce genre de boîtier ? Quelle est la tension et le courant qu'il utilise, et est-ce qu'il existe un adaptateur entre son port USB et un port classique d'alimentation ?

  • The Link is powered by USB (5V and a few hundred mA), so you won't be able to plug it to the Ojai (which issues 9V). However, being USB means you can power it using any available USB port you have: on a computer, on a USB hub, on a USB charger, etc.

    Le Link est alimenté par USB (5V et quelques centaines de mA), donc il ne sera pas possible d'alimenter le Link avec le boîtier Ojai (qui sort du 9V). Par contre, vous pouvez le brancher sur n'importe quel port USB : sur un ordinateur, un hub USB, un chargeur USB, etc.

    somebody with n electronics backgroud could make a rather simple 9v to 5 volt device.

    But 169 euro for a simple 9 volt power-supply ?
    And than the ajai is a single point of failure. If it breaks down you have nothing.

    I would go for a simple narrow 6 way power socket, 5 220 => 9 volt adapters , buy six, one spare, and add a usb power adapter (1 spare) .

    You will have a much cheaper, more reliable, and more flexible system. For sure you will add some new device soon, with different input voltage.
    Shorten the low voltage wires to length to clean up excess wires...

    Kind regards


    one can answer me in French , je comprent..
