529 M

$75.00$130.00

Ultra-compact, high efficiency USB-PD converter for effects pedals, multi-effects and other audio devices

 
Convert an external USB-PD battery pack or charger into a single high current (3000mA) output with five selectable voltages. The 529M delivers up to 60W of power to modern digital modelers and multi-effects from a tiny, ultra-lightweight device. The 529M is about the size of a 9V battery and weighs just one ounce.

The 529M can be used with a daisy chain cable to provide a stable 9V to large numbers of analog effects pedals from a single battery or USB wall charger. It can also be used as a single output power supply for high current devices such as the Line 6 HX series.

The output voltage can be changed using a small switch to 6V, 9V, 12V, 15V or 18V, allowing the 529M to be used to power almost any effects pedal and similar devices that require different voltages.*

* The 529M requires a USB C power source with Power Delivery (PD) capability. Available output voltages and current will depend on the capabilities of the power source. Mission has tested and recommends the following portable power banks:

Mission 529 PD battery pack – 6V, 9V, 12V. 18W. 13400mAh
Anker Powercore+ – 6V, 9V, 12V, 15V, 18V. 30W. 26800mAh
Anker Powercore Elite III – 6V, 9V, 12V, 15V, 18V. 60W. 25600mAh

You can also use the 529M with a USB-C PD charger to power devices continuously from a wall power outlet. Mission has tested and recommends the following USB wall chargers:

Aukey compact 18W – 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A
Anker compact 18W – 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A
High Power 100W5V/3A, 9V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A, 20V/5A

The Mission 529 is one of the lowest noise pedal board power supplies available. Check out the test results to see noise measurements of the 529 compared to some other isolated pedal board power supplies.

9VDC trace of toroidal power supply

The traces above show a 9VDC power output from the Mission 529 compared to another brand of isolated power supply using an external AC/DC switching supply. For reference there is also a trace from a large, premium power supply with an internal toroidal transformer. Toroidal transformers are sometimes quoted in systems specs as being important for low noise.

As you can see from the traces, the 9VDC from the 529 and toroidal supply are virtually identical, whereas the other switching supply is somewhat noisier.

The second set of traces above shows what can happen when switching noise passes into the audio path. In this test, two power supplies are powering a compressor pedal. A test signal representing the guitar is generated at the input and measured at the output.

You can see in the first trace of another brand of power supply that there is some noise superimposed on the audio signal. In the second trace, where the 529 is powering the effect pedal, this noise is removed.
