FuelTank Classic
Congratulations on your purchase of the T-Rex FuelTank Classic
The tough and flexible multiple power supply. Whatever weird and wonderful effects you’re using, FuelTank Classic is guaranteed to keep you rocking!
Your FuelTank Classic is actually three different power sources in one box.
So get connected, draw your juice from the 500mA of 9V DC,
12V DC and 12 V AC supplied by one FuelTank
- and get on down!
What you get
1 T-Rex FuelTank Classic
1 Mains power cable
1 Red 50 cm DC cable with 2.1mm-2.5mm connectors for use on the
12V AC output port
1 Blue 50 cm AC cable with 2.5mm-2.5mm connectors for use on
12V AC output port
1 Black link cable with five 2.1mm-2.1mm connectors
1 Black 50 cm DC cable with 2.1mm DC-3.5mm mini-jack connectors
8 Black 50 cm DC cables with 2.1mm-2.1mm connectors
8 Black 20 cm DC cables with 2.1mm-2.1mm connectors
How to use the FuelTank Classic
Connect the FuelTank Classic to your mains supply.
Check your effect units to make sure that the poles match those on the FuelTank
power ports. (This is very important. “Minus” must be on the centre pin.)
Plug your boxes into the relevant power ports, turn them on and start laying
down the grooves!
Troubleshooting
My effects sound awful
You’re probably drawing more than 500 mA per section. Check your effects for
how much power they require and disconnect accordingly. You’re in America and
you’ve forgotten to switch the mains selector over to 115 volts. The FuelTank
Classic is on, but my effects aren’t. Is everything plugged in and switched on?
Did you check the polarity of your effects? Hurry up and disconnect the power,
then check that the polarity is correct. Remember, minus must be on the centre
pin.
I can hear an irritating hum
This sometimes occurs when numbers of effects are connected together in series.
Try using the link cable to connect the first five effects units
Some pedals generate more background noise than others. Try moving your
FuelTank Classic and placing your noisiest pedals furthest away from it
The FuelTank Classic power light isn’t on
If you haven’t forgotten to turn on the mains supply, there’s been a short-circuit.
Turn off the FuelTank Classic immediately and check all units thoroughly. For
example, is the FuelTank mains cable connected properly? Are all the effects’
polarities correct? Are you home from America and have forgotten to switch the
mains selector back to 230 volts?
If you cannot find the problem, contact your local T-Rex dealer. Do NOT – repeat
NOT – take the Fuel Tank apart yourself.
