AC Courtesy Outlet???

Post by sonhawk » Tue Jun 02, 2009 6:51 pm

Hello,

Can I plug in a 12V 300mA digital pedal into this AC Auxiliary outlet??? Would it draw what it needs? or would it damage my pedal?

DC outlets 5 and 6 are almost suitable but don't quite meet the required 300mA for this specific pedal.

Thanks,

Sean

Plugging into the Courtesey Outlet as you descibed will be fine. It was designed for applications like these.

How difficult it would be to rotate the courtesy outlet 180 degrees?

It sounds like you're trying to power a ND1 or something the likes of TC Electronics. The AC outlet on the PP2 will do it for sure. Outputs 5&6, with the DIP switched away from normal are also supposed to be able to put out this kind of power. I talked to John @ VL and he said they'd had LOTS of success with it.

Good Luck....

Will the AC courtesy outlet power the Digitech Timebender? I think it's 9VAC 1.3 amps.

Yes all you are doing is utilising the adaptor that came with the pedal. Should be fine no problems.
