Re: Equipment, External Voltage and DC Plug Size Info
« Reply #15 on: November 28, 2011, 04:20:21 AM »
I just picked up a Roland R-05 and will test it with a USB when I get it at the end of December, back ordered from Musician's Friend.

The m-10 take 3v center pin positive.  I had a random plug that came with my Digi-concepts PP99 that fits, I just have no idea the plug size, very small.  I plan to bring it down to rat shack and size it one if these days.

Another piece of gear you can add to this list, Ted: the Roland R-05 recorder uses the same power adapter (Roland PSB-6U) as the Edirol R-09 and R-09HR.  As to whether or not you can run it on 5v USB like the HR, I can't confirm that.

Just an observation: I find it ironic that no one has listed the power supply specs for the Sony PCM-M10, one of the more popular small recorders on these boards.  Then again, with its ridiculously long battery times I'm guessing nobody has found the need to use an external power supply. :)

I vote to make this a sticky!

Sonosax SX-M2 / 12-24v / Size M, 5.50mm OD × 2.10mm ID / Center pin (+)  Ring (-) / No perfect Plug is Known, needs to be gaff taped in place

You're right, there is no "perfect" plug per se, but a "B" tip with 2 or 3mm of plastic shaved off of the barrel is the most optimum I've found. Besides that a long C (used by Panasonic Toughbook laptops) works without modification and stays put just fine. The long C is what the old powerizer batteries shipped with but those plugs aren't usable with the tekkeon series.

I tried a non-modified B and it would short out if I looked at it funny even after using tape so I went hunting elsewhere. ymmv.

To my knowledge Sony exclusively uses Japanese standard eiaj connectors for dc power

See

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/EIAJ_connector

And since the m10 uses 3v it should be using an EIAJ-01

Anyone know what the tip size for an Oade M248 is?


And thanks Ted for this highly informative thread. I'm surprised I didn't see this earlier.

NOLAfishwater pointed out this battery in a recent power thread for SD788.  The battery looks good; 153 Watt/Hr or 42500 mAh at (4.75A max), voltage outputs are 5V on USB and switchable output port for 12V or 19V.

I have this battery to power my tube pre's and it is an enormous beast. :o

Updated Roland R-05 to include powering with 5v USB

Roland R-05 does not power off of the USB 5v in my experience. Well it will turn on but immediately goes into USB mode for storage. Not sure if it can be fooled like the Tascam DR100 Mark II.
Roland R-05// 3v / Size B, 4.00mm OD × 1.70mm ID / Center pin (+)  Ring (-)

In addition to the list:
Olympus LS10/ / 5v / Size B, 4.00mm OD × 1.70mm ID / Center pin (+)  Ring (-)

You are correct that the R-05 does not recieve power through the mini usb port.  The specs that I provided are for the DC input of the R-05 which can be powered by 5V USB power (Provided by a computer, Ipod type external battery or larger size external batery with a USB port like the tekkeon 3450).

Thanks for the thread.  It's already saved me time.  I have two bits to add:


Tascam DR100 / 5v/ Size B, 4.00mm OD × 1.70mm ID / Center pin (+)  Ring (-) / Normal Polarity / works on 6V DC input, can be powered for recording via USB connector

I've used a 4-AA alkaline cell sled to power the unit -- Phantom on, 24/48.  (I suppose the mkii is similar, but I really can't say.)



Marantz PMD-761 / 15 V / (a standard size) / (?) / (?) / works on 18V DC input

Again, I've used AA cell sleds, alkaline and NiMH.

I see that the Tascam DR-680 is supposed to be good between 8-13V.  I have a 13.2V NiMH battery that, when fully charged, reads just above 14V.  Does anyone know if I should be in the clear with this, or if I'd be setting myself up for some blown recordings and a few repair bills?  Here's a link to the battery I'd be using, although I have a different brand.

The 680 seems to be finicky about voltages.  I would not go outside of published specs and even then maybe give it a 1 volt buffer on either end of the power rating.
