    $400 seems like a good deal for a pair of strips. What would it cost to have your tech build a lunchbox and power supply? I've never used or seen a Series 70 in person but I've heard it's like a baby 80B so I can't imagine them being terrible. The Series 65 and 24 aren't worth racking.

    The strips are longer than 19" so you'd have to mutilate them to put them in a standard rack. I'd knock together a wood enclosure and buy a PowerOne +18V/-18V PSU. Finding the mating connector to the module would make the wiring much easier. The LEDs need +5V if you want 'em, and don't forget an outboard phantom supply, there's no switch on the module. If you want the schematics or pin outs I can post a link for you.
    The price sounds right, last pair of Trimix modules I saw went for $355 at ebay. HTH

    I was thinking about doing the same thing but when I asked around here (orlando, FL) the electrical techs freaked! Noone seemed to know how to connect those bad boys. i am sure there is someone out there that can at a reasonable price. Who is David Marquette and how do I get in touch with him? Sorry for my ignorance in advance :)

    A search at google.com took all of 30 seconds.

    Thanks all ...and especially Fletcher sorry for the double post had to make a decision and tried to get some answers quick. Talked to David Marquette and he said it would be expensive to rack em, so I will look elsewhere. thanks to all, the guy will posting em on ebay if anyone wants to look for em.

    Im looking to pick up another pair of 70 series strips for my shortloaded 25 channel series 70. If whoever's selling them has more id love to get some contact info.

  9. I know a guy who is selling a 70 that is really nice. He also has 2 Trimix sidecars for sale. They are the same modules as the 70. If anyone is interested, you can email me and I will get you prices.

    Hey planet red,
    They're on ebay now I think,
    but they're Trimix strips. You have to do some mods to get them to work in your 70. Changing the bus switches from 8 individual to 8 pairs mainly, and adding a ribbon connector for the additional buses. HTH
