Axlink Bus Strip

Anybody know where I can get a ABS or have any other ideas I can do? I recently used my last port on my other strip. Ihave tried looking around and everybody I've seen is sold out. Any help would be great. Thanks

    They appear available from AMX... as far as the web site shows.

    Yes. I was just hoping for somewhere a little cheaper

    You can double up but it hampers troubleshooting if you have axlink bus device issues in the future.

    I've used these in the past:

    I get mine direct but you can google them and find them numerous places for arounf $50.00.

    The Xantech would work the same as the ABS?

    It's basically identical except the AMX version has a separate 2 conductor phoenix to supply power from a separate power supply if needed and an LED to indicate power on the bus. Otherwise they're both 4 conductor parrallel buses. If you want to use a separate power supply just feed into any 4 conductor phoenix.

    I think they are enough alike, they are just a 4 conductor breakout. The AMX one has a power plug with LED and probably a limit resistor, but that's not required.

    We used to cut them in half and make 2 as we often only need a few outputs... and ignored the separate power input, just let the 4-wire from the netlinx axlink power the strip.
