Dizzy: Power Distribution board

Constructional Difficulty: Easy

This is a power distribution board supporting twelve 0.156" MTA/Molex headers and one four way terminal block for power entry. Also present are eight 0.1" headers that connect to the Oakley Buss. These allow partial normalisation of CV and gates if required.

The double sided circuit board is 5.6" (142mm) long by 2.35" (60mm) wide. It is designed to go at the rear of 19" rack units or built into the bottom panel of wooden modular cases.

It is fully compatible with MOTM and Oakley power busses. An optional earthing point is also available.

The issue 3 Dizzy board. The empty INLET location will be hardwired to the power supply module. Alternatively, one could use a 0.2" screw terminal block.

The issue 3 Dizzy connected to an issue 2 PSU and fitted to a 4U high 19" rack panel. An assembly like this would be attached to the rear of a 19" rack case and would power up to twelve Oakley modules.
