DC Electrical Panels

Integrated bus bars and simple two-wire connection eliminates wiring harness clutter behind panel. Polycarbonate/ABS panels cannot corrode, are flame retardant and feature LED illuminated ON indication. Carling™ 15A circuit breakers are reset by simply switching the breaker off, then on again. Installation requires placement of an in-line fuse with a maximum rating of 60A between the power source and the panel’s positive buss.

To further reduce wiring clutter consider the MAXI™ Fuse Block (Model 594343), which accommodates tab-style automotive blade fuses from 30A to 80A in its easily mounted, insulated case. Designed for mounting in dry locations. Panels include mounting hardware and 15 preprinted, common circuit name labels. Over 500 additional square format labels are available by Special Order.

This replacement is great. I was impressed with the products quality and ease of instaltion. The upgrade to circut breakers instead of the old SAE fuses helps reduce clutter under the dash and improves performance and relability by elliminating an entire bank of switches and fuse holders.
Thank You

    Comments about DC Electrical Panels:

    Added 12v circuit to my small toy hauler. Like the fact that I can control each individual line with the switched breakers. 15 amps is generally enough but would be nice to have option of on 20 amp circuit. All in all perfect for my needs. Ran #6 wire from fuse at battery box. Need to be careful attaching larger lugs to panel inasmuch as screws are relatively small.

                      Replacement to fused panel. Replaced "Sea Dog" panel.
                      Fit same hole. Screw holes were a little off from old holes. No other issues.
