Power 18 Power Distribution Center:
The Power 18 Power Distribution Center provides Battery Hot, Ignition Hot, and Timed Hot outputs in banks of 6 fused outputs. The control cards, DC-IGN and DC-TMD, regulate the Ignition Hot and Timed Hot Circuits. Either Control Card may be replaced to provide 12 Ignition Hot, 6 Ignition & 6 Timed, or 12 Timed Hot Outputs. The Power 18 should be fed by a 6 Gauge Power and Ground Cable fused at 125 Amps.
Low Voltage Disconnect – In order to ensure that a temporary load does not create a nuisance shut-down, the Timer will wait 15 seconds before disconnecting the circuit.
Over-Voltage Protection – Immediately disconnects the circuit when voltage exceeds 18 VDC. Reconnects when voltage returns to <18 VDC.
Infinite Mode – Setting the timer to Infinite Mode allows computers and radios to stand by for immediate response. The infinite mode also supports VPN communications through onboard routers, allowing the operator to securely communicate with the IT network even when the vehicle is off. The DVT timer will only disconnect when the voltage falls below the low voltage setting and the system will reset once the voltage recovers to 11.9 VDC.
Solid State Design – Eliminates heat build-up and voltage drop across the device.
Ignition Override – When time is critical the ignition override ensures operation of communications equipment.
