Bus Cheeks are just what they sound like: cheek ends with bus boards built in on either side. There are enough 16-pin connectors to power thirteen modules, and there are LED indicators for each power rail. Just plug in a power module and you're all set!
This kit comes with Synthrotek eurorack rails and includes slide nuts and a long 16-pin ribbon cable that runs from one cheek to the other (so that both cheeks light up and distribute power).
This circuit does require some tight soldering and a steady hand.
Please note: Bus Cheeks do not have an internal power supply; you will need to connect a power supply to them if you want to distribute power to your modules.
*There are 8 connectors on each cheek, but if you plug in a power supply module and run a bus cable between the cheeks, you end up with 13 usable connectors. If you need more connections, you can run one of our Deluxe Flying Bus Cables between the cheeks.
**Modules adjacent to the cheek ends have 15mm of clearance before hitting the red LED and 38mm of clearance before hitting a 16-pin connector. It's a great place for a 2HP passive module or anything shallow.
