12V DC Power Strip Complete Project Kit
This is a complete kit version of the 12V DC Power Strip project.
This board is designed to support communication activities using a single 100 Watt HF radio which does not operate at 100% duty cycle at full power, or a single 50 Watt FM VHF/UHF Radios that draws approximately 16A at 13.8VDC in QSOs.
It includes the following components:
- 1 Printed Circuit Board
- 12" 14 Gauge Solid Copper Wire
- 1 Green LED
- 5 Pair 30A Anderson Power Pole Connectors and Pins
- 5 Fuse Holders
- 5 Fuses
- 6 Red LEDs
- 7 1K Resistors
It is not recommended to operate at the Operational Maximum Current of 25A at 13.8VDC for periods longer than 5 minutes, as the copper traces of the 12V DC Outlet Strip can become hot, exceeding temperatures of 150F after an extended period (5 minutes or more) of constant 25A current draw. Temperatures can approach 200F when a constant 25A at 13.8VDC are drawn for periods of 10 minutes or more.
