Kit includes all the parts needed to make one  DC power distribution box, in a supplied 3D Printed Case.

Case made with Petg,  a tough and durable material which withstands up to about 80 deg C  and has high impact & chemical  resistance.

Kit  includes 7 Anderson Powerpole connectors and a voltmeter that fits inside the case.

Note that this is still all in kit form, soldering  and assembly is required and you will need something to hold the meter in place, hot glue or Araldite.  Chek out the youtube vide description:

The case will be a random colour, depending on available materials,

Project Updates

8 thoughts on “Anderson Powerpole DC POWER Distribution Box”

  1. Latest version of instructions just uploaded which include a couple of suggestions from people who have constructed the kit and also a note on voltage ratings.

  2. I was searching for a 12V powerboard for 4WD camping and found the WARS Powerpole Kit. Well done!!! This has much wider application than just Amateur Radio.

    A couple of comments.
    1) The power input needs a separate fuse or probably better as a circuit breaker.
    2) I’d like to see a 50A Anderson plug on power input.
    3) I’d also like to see it turned on it’s side so the leads come out the side with a clear cover but the leds should still face the top.

  3. 1. The kits now come with a 3D printed case only so there is no need to cut the boxes any more.
    2. All kits also come with voltmeter.
    3. Kits are now supplied with bare copper wire rather than enameled copper wire so there is no need to strip off the enamel.
    4. 1k2 resistors are now supplied in place of the 1k0 ones
