In any case, I think you should be prepared for both situations, since you’ll encounter them both If you are running the entire rig off one amp source then you are already getting most of the protection possible.

They have a pulse tolerance of 10 times the rated current, or amperes. Asking firm, see pictures for You are connected directly to the main service of the ace-100 most times and can have greater confidence in knowing you stuff is wired correctly even if the buildings wiring is suspect. Nothing personal what so ever. The MOV’s react to line-derived spikes in nanoseconds, clamping passing voltages to risk-free degrees of V top or much less.
Furman ACD ac power distro. I’m telling ya’ the simplest and possibly the best distro for night clubs is mounting four or more Furman rack mount power strips inside a single rack. Then the lighting guy turned all his crap on at once and popped two of the breakers as we were apparently sharing the power on those two circuits.
We could actually lose 3 out of the 4 grounds supplied, and still be grounded on all four circuits Be cautious of underpriced offers. Something to think about when you’re plugging in to random circuits. I won’t comment on the three prong adapter, as eventhough we just run our own ground, it is still not code to tie in that way.
You don’t get safety with an arrangement like that. Great tones, Great Rhythm Sounds. I have two that I carry with me I find that most of the places I run sound at have 30 amp v appliance connections so I carry a 4 prong appliance pigtail and a 4 to 3 adapter.

The original post in this thread did not give me the impression that the poster even understood the concept of power distribution for a sound system. Seek professional help the first time s you need to tap in.
Enter new zip code to refresh ad-100 delivery time. Like I said, losing the one and only neutral supply, like on everyone else’s typical “breaker panel style” volt distro, and you’ve got killer voltage swings during imbalance.
The ACD can handle ffurman to amps of furmman power, distributing it to five 20 amp, V circuits. Losing any neutral, except the building’s service entrance of course on any of my 4 circuits cannot swing the voltage up to volts like standard distros can.
Yank on those who always seem to find that handy outlet behind the stage curtain, not complying with the “all power comes from distro rule”!
In many cases, the distro will need to be tied directly into a service panel by an electrician. I only do small venues and underground type work so it may not apply to you. Help FAQs Go to top.
I would give you different advise than I would give him. Mike Pyle Audiopyle Sound Dealer: Breakers can be used as on off switches for the five circuits. And as powerful as you’ll ever need, just add more. I am saying that it is dangerous, illegal, and for the level of most folks reading this thread, above them in regard to safety.
Comprehensive directions accompanying the device guide the individual via the process of choose and terminating the supply cord. The 4 wire to 3 prong adapter is either a neutral tied to ground, a ground used as a neutral, or a lifted ground. I have found that having a distro has completely resolved all those headaches. The ACD supplies standard spike and rise reductions, with steel oxide varistors MOV’s connected between the hot and neutral conductors of each circuit.
This plug also comes in a 3 phase version, but you will have to rewire the internal buss of the distro to use it in a 3 phase mode. How many do you bring? If it’s a dual hot single phase V appliance tap with ground, that’s furamn different story, as long as you’re only running a V appliance off of it. It ain’t right to bring in an ungrounded circuit, because when the worst happens, like a total short circuit simultaneously on all four or more circuits, illegal over current on the few existing good grounds will occur.
If you need 30 amps or more per volt circuit, then none of the following applies, especially in smaller night clubs.
Share it or review it. I have found that most venues have lots of 15 amp outlets. Acc-100 have read many posts by you and I get the impression you can probably handle a power tap. I made my own 20 amp X four circuit distro using the same above principle, and it has proven itself over and over for a couple of years now in the most noisiest nightclubs ever known to man. Hey by the way Each Furman unit has its own 20 amp breaker.
I can touch and get shocked too. It looks like what I need. See any errors on this page? Adams wrote on Thu, 19 August Only pay for shipping if you know the seller. High-inrush magnetic circuit breakers. Use of a Power Distro is affordable, both in terms of the convenience it provides and the elimination of pricey and furmwn parallel feeds and related connectors. Either V single phase, V single phase, or V 3-phase.
But maybe you’ve already thought of that, I don’t know. The coolest thing is, when all the Furmans are rack mounted in the same enclosure, all the building’s grounds force bond to zero Volts potential between them, right there at the rack mount chassis, reducing the chance of ground loops.
