    Default Would you use this switchpanel in your POV?

    It's our new "Flat switch panel" system from WIRED HDH. It is 1/32" thick, and programmable on the fly. it mounts cleanly on a dash, and is easy to install and program.

    it is rated for 2.5amps per output, so it will run most LED stuff, or relays to add the big current draw items.

    make sure you watch the video to see how it works!

    My questions is, would you use it, and what would you run with it...

    Got a link to a website with specs so I don't have to sit through a youtube video?

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    No, I wouldn't clutter up my beautiful ride with that.
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    Each output is individually fused. If you have a short, it automatically shuts off that output, all others will stay active. Once the problem is fixed, the output automatically will turn back on.

    If you need that many switches in a POV you probably have bigger issues at hand.

    In colorado, we have some voly departments that are aloud to run full setups, and they seem to like everything switched seperate. 8 switches goes pretty quick with them after you add a lightbar, grill lights, wig wags, tail flashers, front takedown, left alley, right alley and rear work.

    I was thinking in terms of external fuse sockets that can carry different size fuses for each output based on load. I tend not to trust internal breaker circuits.
