Is there a walwart power cable for the Lunatec V2?

Is there a walwart power cable for the Lunatec V2?

I am wanting to run my V2 off the power plug to the wall.

Is this possible?

Thanks
Rick

I don't know what Grace charges and I'm a huge fan of them so i dont really want to direct any biz away from them, but Ted would build a nice power cable for you.  Not that Grace does this, but lots of manufacturers warn against using a psu other than their own and then they charge crazy prices for a replacement.  A non-OEM replacement is usually straight forward...all you need to know is the details (i..e. voltage, current rating, polarity) at the input of the device, which is oftentimes available in the manual, on the device itself, or on the OEM wallwart.

I just used an old 6V wall wart I had lying around. Make sure it has at least 500ma power capacity, more is better, the V2 uses lots of juice. Mine has 600ma. Solder a 4 pin female XLR pin to the output lead, making sure you have the correct polarity!
From Grace's calibration notes:
=========
DC power cord: XLR-4 male on one end, appropriate connector for DC power supply on the other. Note: XLR pin 1 is GND and pin 4 is +6V
BE CAREFUL TO OBSERVE PROPER POLARITY TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO THE V2!

X2 on the Ted P/S......The Grace power supply cable will not be as nice as Ted's.  The actual PSU can be made from pretty much any that fits the specs needed.  I remember reading somewhere that old phone wallwarts have good internal parts and provide a cleaner source than say for instance a cheap rat shack.  Can't recall exactly what it was but better ripple voltage and more consistent voltage and amperage were things that jump to mind
