Lectrosonics RPS4 Rackmount Power

No plans for an RPS8 at this time - it would likely take 2 rack spaces, not sure it would be a practical solution vs. two RPS4. 

Since each power supply has to be capable of handling the full load (otherwise it's not redundant) each RPS8 power supply would need to be able to put out 12 Amps continuously with some safety margin. That gets to be a fairly hefty 15 Amp pair of supplies with bigger fans (the kiss of death). Or you could use 4 power supplies in one box which gets you back to just buying two RPS4's. Also, the market for an RPS8 would be much smaller than the small RSP4 market. Finally, the few people that  truly need an RPS8 can certainly afford to buy two RPS4's. Eight Venue racks is a lot of wireless.

Best Regards,

Larry Fisher

Thanks Larry and Karl,

Understood! 

I generally have 6 Venues in a rack, so would help to tidy up and provide more reliability. 

I also have a rack of 8 x IFBT4 which could benefit from this.

Thank you, fantastic looking product.
