The A-100 suitcase is made of black coated wood with aluminium extrusions with the rail construction fixed to the other parts of the suitcase. Attention! It is not simply an empty wooden case that covers the standard 6HU frame but a completely independent construction that is not based on the 6HU standard frame. It is not possible to convert a standard 6HU frame into the suitcase version !
The two bus boards and the standard power supply are mounted at the rear panel. Consequently the rear panel cannot be removed.
outside: approx. 460 x 330 x 175 mm, without cover and rubber feet
outside: approx. 460 x 340 x 220 mm, with cover and rubber feet
inside: 2 x 84 HP x 3 U, usable depth for A-100 modules: approx. 70 mm in the power supply area (bottom right), resp. approx. 100 mm in the remaining area (measured from inner side of the front panel until end of the pc board of the module)
Weight (without modules): about 7 kg
mains voltage: 115V~ or 230V~ (please specify when you order)
output voltages/current with built-in A-100PSU3 (since about early 2016): +12V/2000 mA, -12V/1200mA, +5V/4000mA
In the area near the power supply (bottom right) no modules should be assembled that are sensitive against transformer hum. We recommend to assemble only control voltage modules in this area (e.g. LFO, ADSR, trigger delay, clock divider/sequencer, sequencer, slew limiter, MIDI interfaces and so on) but no audio modules (VCO, VCF, VCA, VCP, frequency shifter, ring modulator, spring reverb and so on). Even modules width increased depth (e.g. A-113 or A-126) cannot be assembled in the power supply area. They have to be placed in a position outside the power supply area. But this applies only for a few modules. Normally it is no problem to arrange all modules by mounting modules with smaller depth in the power supply area.
