I will be building a case for LZX modules in the coming month. I have the Vidiot to thank for this…
I’ve got both the Malekko Power for distribution and a Cincon TRH100A120-11E12 VI to power it on order.
The trouble I am having is picking out a suitable DC barrel jack and power switch for the case. I have not sourced components like this before so I am not familiar with what exactly is needed in terms of rating tolerances.
The Cincon AC brick’s data sheet says its a 2.1mm ID 5.5mm OD barrel running at 12V and 8.34A. I cant seem to find a barrel jack that isn’t PCB mounted rated for that. Panel mount jacks with a nut look to be rated only 5A.
For the switch, will this rocker work? Is there a functional difference going with quick connect vs. soldered connectors?
Last noob question, what is involved in adding 12V dc jacks like in the Vessel to supplement power for MP, TBC2 and Structure? If I have to ask, should I just not even go there yet?
Any advice or examples of setups with the Malekko - Cincon combo would be greatly appreciated. My brain hurts from looking at part lists!
