12 port rack-mount power hub
Audio-visual equipment typically ships with one of two different external power supply types: either a “line lump” or a “wall wart”. Both conjure negative mental imagery, and the reality isn’t much different—AV racks are often filled with ugly power supplies squeezed together in bumpy clusters generating heat and gobbling up precious space.
Line lumps and wall warts are the bane of integrators tasked with wiring a clean rack.
Enter the TechLogix TL-RKPS-01. This compact hub replaces up to twelve 5V, 12V and/or 24V power supplies with a single, easily mounted rack chassis. Each channel is selectable, thereby accommodating various makes and models of equipment—everything from extenders to splitters to switchers. Plus, remote control allows individual channels to be cycled from any remote location, and 100ms startup sequencing ensures smooth power reboots.
The TL-RKPS-01 is the ultimate tool for clean integrations and hassle-free maintenance.

What comes in the package?
Each TL-RKPS-01 includes one rack mount power supply, one power cable, twelve 2-pin phoenix power connectors, twelve phoenix to locking coax cables (compatible with TechLogix Networx extenders), one 3-pin phoenix power connector, one RS232 cable and two DC cables.
How can I tell what power voltage my devices require?
It’s best to check the manual that ships with your device; however, the voltage can often also be found on the device itself or by checking the power supply that was included with your device.
Do I need to use both power inputs?
No. You can use one or both inputs.
So, why have two power inputs?
Dual power inputs help ensure stable power to all of the connected devices in the event of power outage. You can connect each input to a separate power circuit for redundant power.
I noticed my devices don’t all power on at the same time when I turned on the TL-RKPS-01 for the first time. Is it supposed to do this?
Yes, each channel powers up sequentially with a 100ms delay in between. This helps avoid power spikes which will overload a circuit.
