Announcing: RIGrunner 4010S:      NEW! Automatic on/off

A RIGrunner is the most convenient and safest way to connect all your 12 VDC equipment to a power source. It is a 13.8 VDC power panel that uses the excellent Anderson Powerpole® connectors. Standardize all of your 12 VDC connections using the amateur radio ARES & RACES, RSGB, ARRL Powerpole® system.

The New RIGrunner 4010S has one always on "Master" outlet and 9 automatically or manually controlled switched outlets. Plug your main radio into the master outlet, turn it ON or OFF to automatically control the other nine 40A (max) switched outlets. The switching is done with a 100A solid state automatic FET switch with temperature and over current protection. There are no switches to arc or burnout. The FET switch, in its on condition, has less than .005 ohms resistance. It has our unambiguous precision overvoltage and under voltage indicators. An audio alert is selectable for over and/or under voltage or may be disabled.
