"500" Rack Phantom Power?

Hello. Question, if not too... niave.... On a 500 style rack/power supply, where does the phantom power originate from? The rack/power supply itself, or the pre-amp card? I know there is a switch for phantom on the pre-amp card, but is it just a on/off to break connections with the phantom coming from the rack/power supply? Thanks....

yes. supply is +-16 and +48. On the card is typically just a switch + some resistors going to pins 2 + 3 of the xlr input jack. AFAIK the only one's without PH are one of the BAE versions and the older aphex racks.
