The new CIOKS AC Rider link power supply is an excellent solution for powering small pedal boards with one pedal needing AC power source plus a mix of low current DC pedals and maybe a single medium current one. The first four outlets are divided in two isolated sections offering voltages 9 and 12V DC and a max. current of 200mA per section. For the AC pedal you have voltages 9 or 12V AC available on the last two outlets at a max. current of 800mA, which is enough to power almost any AC pedal on the market incl. the Line6 M9.
The AC section of the AC Rider link power supply is able to power any EHX vacuum tube pedal, any Kingsley pedal, any type of DigiTech Whammy, JamMan, Talker or other needing AC, any Boomerang product, Line6 M9, any 4-button Line6 modeler like the DL4, Rocktron Banshee Talk-Box, Ibanez Tube-King Distortion, any Hughes &Kettener tube pedal, FoxRox Captain Coconut, EBS Valve Drive, any Musicom LAB Controller, Mesa Boogie V-1 or V-Twin, Provicence Controller, VanAmpsReverbamate, Yamaha Magic Stomp just to mention a few of the popular pedals needing an AC voltage. You should only use one of the AC outlets matching the needed voltage for your pedal and leave the other not used.
The two isolated DC sections comprising of outlets 1-4 and providing 200mA each are able to power quite a few low current 9V pedals. If you have more than four you can use the Split Flex or 3-way daisy chain. Each section can also power a medium current pedal like BOSS DD-20 or CE-20, the digital ones from EHX like Freeze, Cathedral, Citar or the RingThing, tc electronic Flashback X4 Delay and all the Strymons excl. TimeLine and Mobius just to mention a few. Using outlet 2 or 4 set to 12V you can also power an older Line6 modeler with 4 buttons like ex. the DL4. You should use the green type 4 Flex cable and leave the associated 9V outlet of the used section not used.
Having two isolated sections with 9 and 12V available you also have the possibility to power an 18 or 24V pedal using a Stack Flex or Series adapter Flexfollowed by a standard Flex cable. One of the four outlets must be left free. For low current 18 or 24V pedals you should consider using CIOKS Booster Flex where the high voltage pedal can be powered using only one outlet.
Courtesy AC mains outlet and link feature
This power supply, like the other two from CIOKS link range, features a courtesy AC mains outlet. The unique position of the courtesy outlet and the AC mains input allows you to link two or more units together by means of an adapter as shown on the pictures on the right. In this way you can power two or three power supplies just with one single mains power cord. You can combine different power supplies to obtain a custom power bank matching your specific needs. The courtesy AC mains outlet can of course be used for other purposes than linking products from CIOKS link range. The last unit in the chain will always have the courtesy outlet free to your disposition.
Pedal board mounting
Five threaded holes in the bottom of the power supply are positioned in a way to allow easy attaching of the unit to a pedal board. Especially with Pedaltrain boards both top and underneath mounting is possible using just two or three screws. All the needed parts are included. The only thing you have to do is to drill either two or three holes in the pedal board.
