Ok, then where in Europe can I buy power supply for my Axon AX-100?
Thank you

I'm not sure if wersi does service for axon, bit you can try. Maybe
they have some spare parts. Terratec now services Axon (at least the
mk II). Have a look at www.axon-technologies.net.

If you prefer do it yourself and
if it is a AX-100 mk I (with the mono input):

My power supply says 15 V AC, 1.24 A.
The AX-100 says 12V AC, 50/60 Hz.

So any AC power supply (basically just a transformer) with a voltage
between 12 and 15 Volts and at least 1.24 A (more is OK, less is a bit
risky, not below 1 A at least if you have the sound card built in)
should do the job.

I would avoid DC power supplies, they are more expensive and might not
work corrrectly depending on the kind of rectification of the voltage
inside the AX-100.

The connector is called in Germany "Hohlstecker" (don't know the
english term) with an inside diameter of 2 mm and an outside diameter
of 5.5 mm.
Since it is AC (or AC is at least expected by the AXON) the poling of
the voltage is irrelevant.

Is a GK-2A / AIX-101 schematic welcome?

Hi,

I would like to ask if a analysed schematic of a GK-2A and/or AIX-101
(=G-1D) would be welcome in the files section or is it forbidden to
post such stuff?

I also have a GK-2B and can add the differences to the -2A.

I looked for such a schematic some time ago but the only source in the
web seems to have vanished. So I analysed them myself and wrote it down. 

If there is interest and no problem with rules etc. I will sketch a
better schematic for the GK-2A (I already have one for the AIX-101)
and check again the GK-2B completely.
I don't have a GK-3 or GK-3B, so I cannot write down what happens to
pin 9 which is not connected at all at my pickups. 
BTW, on the GK-2/AIS-101 depending on the position of the
three-way-switch the synth volume or the instrument input is set to
ground. This is the reason the converters still send MIDI data out
even if the switch is set to instrument.

Might take a week or so until you see the files(s) if I got no
negative feedback. 

(I don't know if one of the manufacturers will intercept if I post my
schematics.)

This is correct; it MUST be an AC supply. DC or stabilized supplies will
not work. Maybe it is not easy to find a replacement, since nowadays 
most wall adaptors are DC, even stabilized.

In the USA, alliedelec.com, radioshack.com, mouser.com or
digi-key.com are well known distributors who may offer a
suitable equivalent.

Re: Re: Axon help needed! (AX-100 power supply data)

There is a relationship between currents (amps) and volts (see Ohm's law, I=V/R, etc.), i.e. if the supply
voltage is lowered, the current drawn will increase.

For a 12V supply you'll need a proportionately higher Amp rating than for a 15V supply.

If you don't have a sound card in your A-100, you'll probably get away with 15V 1Amp or 12V 1.25Amp

To be safe, when you first use it for an extended period, regularly check how hot it gets . If it gets really
hot, stop using it.

If you have a sound card, stick with proven rating;
for 15 V use a 1.2Amps rating (or more), for 12V use a 1.5Amps rating (or more).
