Default How deep are the modules?

How deep are both modules? Will they fit in the 4ms pod60 (34mm deep)?

Yeah that looks okay, it's the expander I'm worrying about. Would want to be able to mount them in the same skiff

Here are the full specs for mounting depth and power:

Vector: 42hp, 28mm deep, 140 mA on +12V, 20 mA on -12V

Expander: 12hp, 44mm deep, 30 mA on +12V, 30 mA on -12V

.. these are also listed on modular grid:

The Expander is too deep for regular mounting in the Pod60. I have seen folks use spacers to make it work, by raising the Expander about 10 mm higher than normal, but it is an unusual look.

Both modules will fit in a 60 hp Moog case, and you'd have enough hp left over for a power module.

The additional depth of the Expander vs. the Vector is due to the Expander being a two board 'stack'. One board has all the jacks, the other is a *very* dense board of SMD components.

Cheers,
Jim

Yeah and with the Expander, the quality of cable to connect to the main unit is very good and as such it is thick and adds a little depth. I found the expander didnt like being on the edge (left edge) of my Tip Top case. The Mantis cases have a bit of an indent that annoys some modules like Magneto.
