Iso 5 Power Supply

Post by Gitarzan44 » Wed Apr 06, 2016 10:53 am

Can I use both 9v and 12v 400mA outputs at the same time?

Guitarzan44! Wow the Jungle Band is much larger than I ever imagined!



OK... Yes, you can use both outputs at the same time. However, those outputs do share a ground connection so it is possible to have unwanted ground loop noise depending on how the two pedals react to each other. Also, the two pedals used would have to have a combined current draw of 400mA or less.

I hope that helps!

Does that mean I can power 4 Pedals at 9v, one pedal at 12v and one pedal at 18v (6 pedals in total) at the same time? If yes, that would be great!

Yes!

The 9V and 12V high-current outputs are not isolated from each other (their negative terminals are common). You certainly can use both, but they will share a common "ground" connection. If using both, the combined output should not exceed 400mA.

I hope that helps!
