I just bought a TimeFactor recently, and i've just added it to my main pedal board, but because of the reverse polarity, i'm a litte confused as to what to do with it (yes, daft i know…)
My power is coming from a T-Rex Fuel tank Classic.
Obviously voltage-wise it makes sense to hook it into the blue line, any ideas on whether this will cause behaviour issues (with the pedal… not me…) or where i should look for an adaptor to reverse the polarity?
You definitely need to use the correct polarity on the power plug. See specs below:
5.5 x 2.5mm barrel, tip positive.TimeFactor can operate from a 5W power source that supplies regulated 9 to 12VDC max. The minimum required power ranges from a maximum of 4.5W at power up (all LEDs lit) to about 3.6W in normal operation depending on how many LEDs are lit.
For a regulated 12VDC, the current requirement is 380mA at power up and 300mA in normal operation. Do not use unregulated 12V.
For a regulated 9VDC, the current requirement is 500 mA at power up and 400mA in normal operartion.
