Application Characteristics

For music festivals, concerts, fairs, or any application where audio equipment is needed, power distribution can make or break a performance. Constant communication of power supply status is crucial for the safety of the crew, talent, and anyone involved in the setup or breakdown of stages and sound design — as well as protecting the expensive equipment.

Our client, Elite Core Audio, developed a unique solution to help ensure all parties involved can clearly see the status of a power supply. The Power Drop flexible power distribution helps customers get power where they need, when they need it.  And thanks to its innovative design that features indication on the side of the device instead of on top, it does it without stealing any of the spotlight from what’s happening on stage. These power distribution systems are wired so that even if one output fails, the thru-put system ensures the rest of your chain remains powered. Because this product is backed by a lifetime warranty, finding the right indicator was essential.

Application Requirements

Elite Core came to us with a precise list of design specs for its Power Drop device, which featured a discreet placement of the indicator on the side of the power supply instead of the top. Design requirements included: 

  • High daytime visibility
  • Blue LED 
  • Long-lasting, reliable operation
  • 120V indicator with wire leads
  • North American manufacturing 

After conducting extensive research on possible solutions, the client discovered that most fell short of its wish-list. Using a blue LED that aligned with the brand was a must-have, and many of the standard LED options were green or orange, which would be distracting on stage. Fortunately, VCC had exactly what the job required — and it was already in stock.
