Doubling phantom power?

scenario...

Doing live sound and our board has global phantom. It runs on all channels when engaged.
We use phantom for some condenser/dynamics we just picked up but we also use a vocal harmony pedal which also has phantom.

The phantom from the board will not feed the mic when plugged into the harmony pedal. Understandable, I guess.

What we're wondering is... if we turn on the phantom at the pedal so the mic works, will it also receive the phantom from the board giving the mic a double dose of 48v? Or maybe toast a channel on the board?

What are your thoughts?

many thanks
Kel
