Overview

The Pod Expander is a front-end designed to provide Pod support on MacLab and PowerLab models that do not have built-in Pod connections. It provides 4 Pod inputs and is compatible with all Pod models.

Note that some early MacLab and PowerLab systems manufactured before December 1997 do not support the operation of the Pod Expander.

Details

Features


  • The ability to add up to four Pod devices to a MacLab or PowerLab hardware unit that has no built in Pod support.
  • The necessary switching and power distribution for each Pod.
  • Software-control, the software will periodically scan each Pod input on the Pod Expander to see if a Pod is attached. If it finds one, the Pod will be installed on that channel.
