Re: UDR56K-4 current draw / fuse
Powerpoles add cost & unpredictability.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
They are not waterproof (an odd choice for emcomm), they must
be assembled carefully or are prone to failure, they tarnish
over time and only partially self-clean during connect-disconnect
cycles (when tarnished they demonstrate high-loss for low current
and high current demands), and the most common connectors are
unsuitable for high current apps (requiring a higher amp-rated
non-interconnectable version of the PP 75a vs 35a). They are
also easily bumped loose, creating intermittent connections, or
I removed all of them and went back to sure-connect bare wire
and crimped wire connectors (they are cheap, simple, available everywhere) and terminals. Reliable & simple.
Most users almost never, if ever, interconnect with anyone nor
do they frequently connect and disconnect most of their gear -
once set up.
IMHO, YMMV ...
Was there any thought into using Anderson Powerpole connectors? These
