Mercury D Series G810 Rack System two
The Mercury G810 Rack System Two like its twin (System One) is a professional 500 series sized casing to distribute power and mount your favourite 500 series outboard gear but has 25pin D-sub I/O. The G810 is designed to solve the difficulty of the power distribution other 500 rack systems struggle with. Some products not designed for standard 500 series racks take more than their share of the power to work, which in turn causes problems with all other modules in the rack. This is not an issue with the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System.
The power specification for Mercury D Series G810 Rack System is much higher than the spec of the '500' Standard. Providing more power does not solve the power problems of '500' Racks, so, Mercury successfully designed a better Power Structure not just providing more amps/watts. Mercury designed the Mercury Power Regulation Circuit as a solution to '500' Rack power problems. The Mercury Power Regulation Circuit is not only in the rack, it is on every channel of the rack offering individual regulation per channel. The Mercury D Series G810 Rack System is the first '500' Rack to have this feature and is why Mercury feel that this is not only a better rack but a better system overall. The Mercury Power Regulation Circuit allows each channel to be isolated from the channel next to it or any other channel in the rack, which will protect from faults or emissions from problematic modules. No module in the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System shares DC power with another module in the rack.
Rock Solid Construction
The Mercury D Series G810 Rack System is simply built like a Tank. Featuring thick aluminium rack ears, and a durable steel chassis, for both strength and optimum shielding for internal electronics. Like all Mercury Recording Equipment Co. products, the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System is engineered to be reliable and look good in your studio but built to be road-worthy.
On the back panel of the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System - I, there are Gold Pin XLRs (for channels 1-10) and DB25 (DSUB) connectors for channels 1-8 to give you choices of how you install your system. The Mercury D Series G810 Rack System - I is rack mountable, but you can also use as a Table Top Rack as well. The Mercury D Series Line will have several choices of power supplies to be able to power a single rack or several in the future. The first is the Mercury D Series PSU-1. All Mercury D Series Power Supplies feature Studio Quality, Low Noise, Linear Power designed for Audio. The D Series PSU-1 Power supply is also rack mountable or can sit on the tabletop next to the rack or on the floor etc... You can also mount two D Series PSU-1 Power Supplies together as a dual 1U unit to save valuable rack space, and there are places for optional feet on the bottom if needed.
Plenty of Features
The Mercury D Series G810 Rack System has many features to make your recording experience easier. The G810 Chain Switch (per channel), This switch allows simple, convenient, internal signal flow among modules. Example: If you have a Mic pre in Channel 1 of your Mercury D Series G810 Rack System, an EQ in Channel 2 and a Limiter in Channel 3, you could plug your Microphone cable in the input of Channel 1 and an XLR Cable into the Output of Channel 3 directly to you recording device and engage the Chain Switch on Channel 1 and 2 and they will all be "Chained" together. Note: This also works if you are using DB25 connectors to your patch bay as well. The G810 Link Switch, (per channel), This switch provides 'Linking' of modules that support that feature. Ground Lift - The ability to 'lift' the ground connection to insure quiet operation in all environments.
The Mercury D Series G810 Rack System is just the beginning. It is the first part of the Mercury D Series System that will feature Mercury D Series Modules, like Preamps, EQ and Limiters. More, there are new products and problem solving tools for engineers to use to make the gear they already use better. The Mercury D Series G810 Rack System has 10 slots, 1-8 are designed for Mercury D Series or any '500 Module' to be installed, and you can also install these on slots 9 and 10 as well. But in the very near future Mercury will have several G8 Modules for slot 9 and 10 that will let you do things with the Mercury D Series G810 Rack System to make recording easier and also have choices at your fingertips.
