What is a power supply module?
The power supply module is the component that powers an amplifier module to perform its tasks. The power supply module transfers the power from the input source into signal level voltage, which is needed by the amplifier module and other audio components like DSP module kits. Here at SoundImports, you can buy high-quality power supply modules from our premium brands Hypex, ICEpower, Mean Well, and Sure Electronics.
What is a power supply module used for?
A power supply module takes AC from a wall outlet, converts it to unregulated DC, and then steps it down to the voltage required by the load using an input power transformer. The transformer also separates the output power supply from the mains input for safety reasons.
