Virtual Four Pole Power Supply
The V4P power supply board is mainly intended for driving multi-channel ZapPulse based amplifiers, like
Home Cinema installations, from 4 channels up to 8 channels.

The principle of Virtual Four Pole Networks
Here you can see the principle of V4P networking capacitors. All caps are synchronously charged or
none of the caps exchange charge currents. Every capacitors equivalent series resistance is about 100
milliohms, but the
combined series resistance to the neighbour capacitor is about 200 milliohms. So no capacitor can
exchange currents with the others.
All necessary functions are combined on the module, so virtually no wiring is called for.
The 8 Ultra Fast rectifiers are placed on small separate heat sinks. In front of the picture you see the Soft Start relay,
which enforces a slow cut into the mains grid, avoiding stress to the rectifiers, switches and capacitor

enlarge (Here shown with a ZapPulse 1.0 module).
The wiring to the modules is very simple. Note, we have removed one capacitor from the ZapPulse module on
this picture, to give you a better
view of the wiring.
We recommend transformers of 2 X 42 V AC secondary, at 400-500VA to drive 4 ZapPulse modules, and the doubles
for 5 to 8 channels.
Here you can see how the transformer is connected to the V4P board.
