Modcan Power Question

Post by rrooyyccee » Thu Sep 07, 2017 11:25 am

I have a Modcan rack/power system and have one extra module I'd like to power. Is there a way of running a power connector to this single module outside of the rack? I'm trying to hold of on buying a sixpack or equivalent just for this one single module. I think the reason is because I'm afraid I'll start buying more modules, and you know how that goes.

If you have a space on the power distribution board in your current rack then you could make a longer power connector cable and route that to the external module.

Shouldn't be a problem... Is there room for another power cable on the bus board? If so, yeah, just a long 3 pin Modcan power cable can be run from the bus to anywhere really. Put it in a shoe box if you have to :hihi:
