Re: [BUILD] CAPI Dual VPR & 51x Floor Box PSU~Official Support Thread

If you are using the rack with only the Floor Box, the filtering is not needed. It is possible the inrush current to fill the 470µF caps is causing the fuse to blow. Its almost like leaving phantom on for 10 preamps and then starting up the Floor Box PSU.

Any workaround (other than putting the floor box on ebay) ? The long term plan is to have a second rack, hence the floor box instead of the other power supply on your shop.

If you only ever plan to use the Floor Box then no need for the filter components at all.

I got that, but what's a good workaround? Just bypass all the filtering section or use a higher current fuse?

I would try a 160mA slow blow fuse.
