external power module and context switch for monome grids
retail price: $50
depth: 30mm (“skiff friendly”)
power: passive module, requires external adapter (included)
switch adds an additional 5v power supply to a eurorack modular system specifically to power a monome grid.
the grid is protected against negative & over-voltage power supplies, while isolating the dynamic power requirements of the leds from the extant eurorack power supply.
with the grids power supplied independently, issues of high frequency noise and the large dynamic power draw of the grid are removed.
two usb ports and a switch are provided for rapid context switching between two monome modules. these ports can also be connected to a computer, which may be out of reach for a physical hot-swapping.
