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

The case is made with PETG,  or ABS , both  tough and durable materials that withstand up to about 80 deg C (PETG) or 100 deg C (ABS)   .

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

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
