PSC FPSM3P Overview

The PowerStar Mini Triple Play from PSC is a power distribution system that provides a convenient way to distribute clean, quiet, reliable 12 VDC power from one or more rechargeable batteries. It can be used to power all your ENG (Electronic New Gathering) gear in a bag or small cart for applications using wireless mics, mixers, recorders, USB devices, and more.

The Mini Triple Play features nine main outputs. Each output can deliver up to 2 amps of continuous current and the total current limit is 10 amps. A top-panel mounted 3-way power switch controls the entire operation. When switched to the left, only USB power connectors will be powered on to allow continued charging of your USB devices. When switched to the center position, everything is turned off. When switched to the right side, everything is powered on. In addition, one connector is always on and has a blue ring to identify it.

The PowerStar Mini Triple Play is built with Silent Power technology, which is designed to filter out unwanted switch-mode noise and RF interference from your power lines. These filters ensure you of clean, quiet recordings in the field to provide you with better than 34 dB of RF isolation from 100 to 900 MHz. Furthermore, each of the power outputs are individually Polyfuse protected so that if one output is shorted, the remaining outputs will function normally.

Finally, the power inputs are via three 4-pin mini XLR connectors on the Mini Triple Play. Several options such as NP-1 battery cups, AC power supplies and an assortment of PSC power cables are available separately. The PowerStar Mini Triple Play also has reverse polarity protection, Switchcraft connectors, a rugged aircraft aluminum case, a tough powder-coat finish, and a removable stainless-steel belt clip with three mounting positions for flexibility in the field.

I am using the USB ports of the 'PSC PowerStar ...

I am using the USB ports of the 'PSC PowerStar Mini Triple Play' to power the RodeLink receivers but unfortunately that make very very loud noise, and sound is not usable. When using internal batteries or external power bank batteries to power the RodeLink receiver via USB to Mini-USB cable the sound is perfect. These three USB ports of the PSC product designed for that purpose. Please advise how to solve that issue? thanks in advanced.
Asked by: Gabriel
More than likely the problem you are experiencing while using the USB ports on the PSC PowerStar Mini Triple Play is that these USB ports can not supply enough power for the RodeLink RX-CAM receiver. The PSC's ports can only provide up to 2A maximum each which is less power than two AA batteries will supply and less power than a wall power adapter (like one you would use to charge a smartphone -- typically 2.4 to 5A) or the external power bank you have can supply. Rode specifies that the RX-CAM can be powered via USB with a wall power source or a portable battery. The PSC PowerStar Mini a power distribution system, not a battery or wall power source and its USB ports are not suitable for supplying the power required by the RodeLink receiver.

question

Does the unit prioritise any of the inputs, (by Voltage?) or is there equal power draw at all times from all three power inputs?
Asked by: Anonymous
It draws from the highest voltage source as a priority but if current draw exceeds that source’s capacity it will draw from other sources. If for example you are running a battery in the bag at 12v and then plug into an AC adapter at 15v, it will draw from the AC adapter and save your battery as long as it is connected.
