PowerPole® 4-Way Connector Box

PowerPole® connectors are the best way to distribute DC in your shack or in the field. Once you start using them, the urge to convert all your DC distribution to them becomes inevitable. Our PowerPole® connector box is rated at 25 Amps. PowerPole® connectors are impossible to connect the wrong way round; reliable and easy to use.

The SOTABEAMS PowerPole® 4-way makes light work of connecting four things together. For example, four PowerPole® connectors allow you to connect a radio and amplifier to your battery while leaving one socket free for another accessory. Naturally we have designed the PP 4-Way to be light and rugged too.

Speaking of design, the PP 4-Way is rated at 25 Amps; no mean feat for a PCB design. To acheive this we had to use a special up-rated PCB with double weight copper. We also use some clever design to improve the current handling even more: ultrawide traces are used on both sides of the board. These are roller tinned (both sides) to reduce the resistance even more. Finally we use plated through vias, carefully located to ensure an even current distribution between each face of the board. This is a unit built to a high specification!

The PP 4-Way uses genuine Andersen PCB contacts too for lower contact resistance and improved reliability.

The PP 4-Way is available in three forms:

  • The PCB kit consists of: 1 x PCB, 8 x PCB contacts, 4 x red connector shells, 4 x black connector shells.
  • The PCB + enclosure kit adds an ABS box, laser-cut front panel and board mounting hardware.
  • Alternatively you can buy the PP 4-Way ready-built and tested.

Dont forget to order a bargain pack of connectors!

    Steve Berry. Very good product. Easy to assemble and once I had replaced the solder tip on my iron simple to solder up.

    EXTRA "IN"!

    Posted by GW4XXF on 17th Mar 2018

    Like several other reviewers I have added an input (30A PPs) to the end to give four outputs.
    I did the same to my Fuser 6. (45A PPs)
    A very simple modification to carry out to both models.
    Mine look as though they are the original design!
    Short lengths of 2.5mm wire (from T&E) soldered into conventional PP contacts and along the length of the tracks and a rectangular notch in the housing is all it takes.
    Makes an excellent product even more excellent!

    4 Way Connector Box

    Posted by Chris Maxwell on 8th Dec 2017

    A very useful accessory however, it would benefit from an "Input" pair of Power poles on the end using the right angle PCB connector pins and moulding retaining plates that are available from the importers.

    Portable use

    Posted by Rachael M1AYG on 9th Sep 2017

    Excellent little unit which I intend to use for power connection to my LiFePo4 battery during portable use. Easy build though what the little pack of 4 black rubber (feet?) are for I have no idea, as they don't have any sticky surface.
    One small addition I made was to drill a hole at one end and using a grommet thread through 30A red/black wires with Powerpole attached (aren't they brilliant?) for power input. This gives me 4 outlets. I'm thinking here of 2 radios, a CW unit.....leaving a spare just in case. Thanks Sotabeams.
