I need to mount a Pedal power 2 inside a rack case and the only space I have in the rack means I have to mount it by velcro from the top inside panel so it is essentially hanging from the ceiling of the rack case.

I will do this by either covering the top of the pedal power with velcro and attaching it to the ceiling of the case or attach velcro to the bottom of the pedal power 2 and hang it upside down from the ceiling of the rack case.

My question is will either of these methods cause any problems with heat dissipation /overheating or any other issues.
Will it operate properly if it is hanging upside down and will it overheat if the top of the pedal power 2 is covered in velcro.
Thanks

I think you should be completely fine to mount the Pedal Power 2+ as you have described... except that I'd be concerned that the weight might exceed what velcro could handle... you might want to see of you can run a couple heavy duty zip ties to hold it in place.

I hope that helps!

That's great thanks for your help.

I have gone ahead and used the 50 mm wide strips of velcro cut to size to fully cover the top of the PP2 and the velcro will easily take the weight without any possibility of the velcro separating.
The velcro not only supports the weight of the PP2 but it takes a lot of effort to get it off once it is on.

If anything was to fail I think it would be the adhesive surface of the velcro over a period of time but the PP2 is also supported from below by a small pad of high density plastazote foam so hopefully it will not be going anywhere.
Thanks.
