1. Unpacking and Placing the Unit
Lay the box on a table and open it by separating it from the external paperwork and
removing or cutting the adhesive tape seal. The following items are included:
•
•
•
•
•
one VAN DER GRAAF;
one power cord;
two output cables with 5.5/2.1mm jacks;
two output cables with 4-pole XLR connectors;
this manual.
Should one or more item be missing, please contact your retail dealer.
Remove the VAN DER GRAAF from the foam enclosure and place it onto a stable base,
far from heat sources. Avoid full sunlight on the unit. Allow for ample room around the
unit for venting.
The VAN DER GRAAF is a power supply capable of delivering up to 60VA when
operating. Even if its regulators are high efficiency ones, and even if not always all
outputs are used, the unit can produce a relevant heat. Therefore, an adequate air
flow is recommended.
Avoid smoke, moisture, dirt and liquids from reaching the unit. Please note that any
signs of abuse will void warranty coverage.
Do not place the unit on thick carpets or inside a box or piece of furniture, not even
close to curtains.

4. Connecting and Powering the Unit
WARNING: All connections between the VAN DER GRAAF and other equipment
must be made when all units are turned off and completely powered down or
unplugged. Failing to do so may cause damage to the VAN DER GRAAF and/or
other units.
Please refer to chapter 3, “Back Panel”.
Connect one or two units with +15V or +9V single supply input to VAN DER GRAAF
output 1 and 2 (Fig. 2, 7), using the stock cable, after selecting the right output
voltage for each powered unit. For example, when powering a Young DSD with output
1, the voltage selector closest to the output socket (Fig. 2, 8) must be set to the upper
position. On the other hand, when output 2 is used to power a hiFace Evo, then the
voltage selector closet to it must be set to the lower position.
Connect one or two units with composite supply input (+5V/+15V/-15V) to VAN DER
GRAAF output 3 and 4 (Fig. 2, 6), using the stock cables. One such unit is, for
example the Marley.
WARNING: VAN DER GRAAF total maximum current capability on +15V e -15V rails
of outputs 3 and 4 is set to 1.5A.
Connect the stock power cord to VAN DER GRAAF power socket(Fig. 2, 9) and to a wall
outlet.
Push the power switch on the back panel (Fig. 2, 10) to turn the VAN DER GRAAF on.
The power LED on the front panel (Fig. 1, 4) will glow. The VAN DER GRAAF will enter
standby, waiting for enabling by the user.

Push the global enable button (Fig. 1, 1). At first enable, this action will have no effect
on outputs. At following enables, if the user has previously enabled one or more
outputs, they will activate in the same order as the user manually enabled them..

5. Cleaning the Unit
The VAN DER GRAAF should be cleaned with a soft, slightly damp cloth. Do not use
alcohol or any other types of cleaning fluids as they could damage the unit.
Avoid fluids from dropping or leaking inside the unit. Fluids of any type poured into
the unit will void your warranty.
Be careful not to scratch the Plexiglas front screen.

6. Outputs Toggle
When the VAN DER GRAAF is in standby (only LED 4 on), it is possible to activate it
pushing the global enable button (Fig. 1, 1). Immediately after this button operation,
the global enable LED (Fig. 1, 3) starts blinking and the previously enabled outputs
are activated in the order chosen by the user, at one second intervals. At the end of
the activation process, the active outputs are indicated by the related LED, which is
on, and the global enable LED glows steadily.
When VAN DER GRAAF is active, it can be put in standby pushing the global enable
button once more. Following this action, the global enable LED starts blinking and the
active outputs are shut down in the reverse order with respect to the activation order.
For example: if the activation sequence is: OUT3-OUT1-OUT2, the outputs will be
shut down in the following order: OUT2-OUT1-OUT3. At the end of the process, the
enable indication LED’s of all outputs are off and the global enable LED stops
blinking and remains off.
NOTE: the outputs activation sequence is stored by the VAN DER GRAAF when it
enters standby. If the power switch (Fig. 2, 10) is used to shut down the VAN DER
GRAAF,
GRAAF then the sequence, even if changed from the previous standby, is not
stored and the VAN DER GRAAF will use the last stored sequence upon following
activation, not the latest one.
The ability to activate the outputs in a chosen order is very useful whenever the units
in the chain powered by the VAN DER GRAAF need to be turned on in a given order.

6.1. Setting and changing the activation sequence
Please refer to the VAN DER GRAAF as it is right after delivery from the dealer, turn
it on and push the global enable button. The global enable LED turns on. No output is
active (all output enable LED ‘s are off).
Enable the first output pushing its enable button.
NOTE: the first output to be enable must not necessarily be the one labelled as
‘OUT 1’. More simply, it will be the first one that the user wishes or needs to
activate.
As well, enable other outputs (all the available outputs or a part of them) in the
desired order.
NOTE: the order of activation chosen by the user will be stored by the VAN DER
GRAAF when it goes in standby. Should the unit, after outputs order setup be
turned off toggling the power switch while it’s active, it will not store the
sequence.
If an output is disabled, it will be deleted from the enable sequence. Any output
activated while a sequence is already set, will be added to the sequence as the last
output to be enabled. Therefore, if the present sequence is: OUT2-OUT1-OUT3 and
output 1 is disabled to be enabled again shortly after, the new sequence becomes:
OUT2-OUT3-OUT1.

7. Overload and Protection
All Van Der Graaf outputs are protected against unwanted overloads by solid state,
automatically resettable fuses. Anyway, continuous short-circuits may damage the
unit and must always be avoided.
In case of overload or short-circuit at one output, the behaviour of the unit is such that
other outputs may be affected.
Whenever an overload condition is detected, it’s recommended that user turns the
VAN DER GRAAF off and detaches all powered units. Each unit must then be checked
with its stock wall adaptor to find out which unit is defective.
Then working units may be connected back to the VAN DER GRAAF.
