I’ve been slow on supporting the smaller channels lately (life happens), so today I’m sharing another powerpole distribution project. This one from AD6DM Dennis.
The most interesting aspect of his project was the 3D printing of the enclosure and his knowledge of printing materials. It’s completely obvious that a 3D printer is needed here at OH8STN, so it’s nice to see these projects coming together, from other amateur radio operators.
If you’re putting this project together, you’ll need to address the fusing issue either upstream between the board and power supply, or downstream between the board and the loads.
Here’s the video, and parts list. Please let Dennis know what you think about that project.

In this episode, I build a fuse-less power distribution accessory from connectors & a 3D printer. This allows multiple devices to share one power supply. It has 45A PCB connectors soldered together internally, and is designed to be stackable for daisy-chaining.
Very satisfying putting this together from concept to final product. And you get to see during my very first time attempting this build, I actually put the Powerpoles in backwards. 🙂 But it works!.
