Yes - Any of the six can be used to hook up to the PSU and any can go  
to the panels

The Panels with VCOs usually have two power connectors  I connect  
mine to the same board.
Not sure what the third would be for but my TKB has a connector for  
hooking up the TKB quantizer on another pannel ( I think ) this cable  
is a different format to the power cables tho.

My PS6 only has two XLR type connectors.

Rex told me to connect each section of the system up separately ( for  
the first time ) - to check that the LEDs on each bit light up . - So  
to power up the PSU without any other connection and check that the  
two LEDs light. Then power down and hook up the XLR cable to the  
distro board and power up again - check the LEDs on the Distro Borad  
are both lit. Power down then hook up the panels

Hope this helps
