This is an economical version of the A-100 suitcase. It is made very simple without front cover, without the metal rails and corners of the suitcase version described above. In other respects the low cost suitcase is identical to the suitcases described above (i.e. it includes the A-100 PSU2 and two bus boards).
The case is made of raw wood without laquering. The case can be varnished by the customer in any desired color e.g. by means of a spray can.
It is also available with black coating :A-100LC6V
outside: approx. 445 x 275 x 160 mm
inside: 2 x 84 HP x 3 U (two bus boards), useable depth for A-100 modules: approx. 80 mm in the power supply area (bottom right), resp. approx. 110 mm in the remaining area (measured from inner side of the front panel until end of the pc board of the module)
Quantity of bus boards: 2
Weight (without modules): about 4 kg
Maximum Output Current:
with built-in A-100PSU2 (until about end of 2015): +12V/1200mA, -12V/1200mA
with built-in A-100PSU3 (since about early 2016): +12V/2000 mA, -12V/1200mA, +5V/4000mA
In the area near the power supply (bottom right) no modules should be assembled that are sensitive against transformer hum. We recommend to assemble only control voltage modules in this area (e.g. LFO, ADSR, trigger delay, clock divider/sequencer, sequencer, slew limiter, MIDI interfaces and so on) but no audio modules (VCO, VCF, VCA, VCP, frequency shifter, ring modulator, spring reverb and so on). Even modules width increased depth (e.g. A-113 or A-126) cannot be assembled in the power supply area. They have to be placed in a position outside the power supply area (e.g. in the upper row). But this applies only for a few modules. Normally it is no problem to arrange all modules by mounting modules with smaller depth in the power supply area.

The price for the A-100 low cost suitcases can be found in the price list in the A-100 section.
Remark: The lower pictures show a black and blue varnished prototype with another type of threaded rails. The final version of the A-100 low cost case is manufactured with the same rails and threaded inserts as the standard A-100 frames and suitcases.
