Gen3 modules and Chromagnon offer the new option for direct bulk 12V DC power via DC power barrel – and skipping over EuroRack power supplies entirely. While LZX DC Distro is a viable option for those of you adapting existing EuroRack cases, if you are starting fresh and don’t mind a little shopping and DIY labor, there are some very affordable solutions using power supplies and power distribution units designed for CCTV camera equipment, LED lighting and broadcast peripherals. I love scenarios like this, where we can piggyback off a larger industry to provide more affordable solutions.
For example, here’s a 19" rack mount solution that would be capable of providing power to an enormous Gen3 system, including broadcast converters and lighting, that would cost a fraction of an equivalent EuroRack power supply. Just add some DC power pigtails, rackmounted EuroRack rails, a rack case, and you’d be good to go!
Note: I haven’t personally evaluated the below equipment, it’s just provided as an example for the purpose of discussion. Lets fill this thread with ideas and applications!
