PSX - Power Scale control switch


In Stock
Product Code:


PSX provides an easy interface between ERK Electronic Relay Kit and multiple Power Scale controls.

In a 2-channel amp fitted with Power Scaling, it is sometimes desireable to have two different Power Scale settings to more completely distinguish the amp sounds. ERK can hanlde the preamp switching tasks but cannot directly switch the Power Scale controls - PSX allows that interface.

PSX includes the Power Scale control, interface circuitry, a jfet to be driven by ERK, and a small PCB that is supportd by the control itself.

For a 2-channel amp two PSXs are required.
For a 3-channel amp three PSXs are required.
...and so on...

For three or more channels, QRK or similiar control system should be used.

Note that some means must be providede to switch the Drive Compensation controls, as well. usually these require series switching and a relay, such as RLY, is most suitable. To drive RLY from ERK requires adding a BJT and base-stopdriven by one of ERK's outputs, and powered from the same supply as ERK.
