API in Jessup, Md., announces that it has re-engineered the lunchbox frame for 500 Series modules ($499 MSRP). The re-engineered lunchbox offers an increased power supply current of 215mA per slot, the addition of DB-25 connectors for input and output connection, and XLR access to channels 7 and 8 of the multipins.
The revamped lunchbox also provides individual power rail LED indication and re-settable fuses on the power rail of each slot, so that one faulty module will not affect the others. The addition of a 100VAC input voltage tap allows for wider international versatility.
API adds that despite the numerous changes, the lunchbox's basic design remains, with six slots for standard API 500 Series modules, an internal phantom power supply, and rugged steel chassis.
