MiniDC Isolator
MiniDC isolator is a tiny (2.36" x 1.97") board allowing a perfect system integration with power on/off of your DSP and amplifier system. Based on a DC-DC isolated converter and delay circuit, it allows you remote turn ON/OFF in the correct order. This board is especially recommended for car audio application to allow complete isolation of the alternator noise. It is compatible with all miniDSP products except the miniDSP 2x8/8x8 units and the HD models.  Includes a bare wire to plug adapter as pictured.

MiniDSP has informed us the miniDC is fine to use with the 2×4HD. (MiniDC + a single 2×4HD).

The below diagram illustrates the timing relationship between Vin, Vout, REMin and REM out pins. When the remote input (REM in) goes high (above 5V), the device will the isolated 12V output immediately (no delay). The remote output (REM OUT) is delayed by 3 seconds to allow for the DSP to settle before amplifiers are turned on. Once the remote input (REM in) signal goes low, the remote output goes immediately low to turn the amplifier off first. The isolated 12VDC out will be delayed to turn the miniDSP last.

Technical Specifications

- 12V DC to DC isolation compatible with miniDSP unbalanced and balanced units
- Wide 10-18V input range
- 1500V isolation
- Short circuit protection
- Delayed +12V remote out

NOTE: This product is not compatible with the miniDSP 2x8/8x8 platforms since it does not have enough power.

Try this with the miniDSP 2x4
