Projecta has released an all-new ‘Portable Power-Hub’, designed to provide fast and convenient power anywhere and anytime, no matter what the location; remote campsite, caravan park or on the worksite.
The PH125 Power-Hub turns a humble 12V battery (up to N70Z) into a convenient, versatile and user-friendly device capable of powering and charging a wide array of appliances and electronic equipment simultaneously via 10 power outlets.
Included is a 240V AC socket providing clean ‘Pure Sine Wave’ power (300W) which is a must for sensitive equipment, and DC terminals for applications requiring a high rate of current such as jumpstarting.
Other outlets include USB (2x2A), cigarette lighter (2x10A), Engel (1x10A), a 50A heavy duty and Merit sockets (2x15A) and all are protected by automatically resetting circuit breakers.
For greater convenience, the Power-Hub’s clever design allocates all the sockets that users are likely to be regularly connecting and disconnecting on one side of the unit, while the outlets which generally remain connected longer term (such as Engel type and AC outlet) are located on the reverse side.
The unit is designed with outdoor use in mind and features moulded gutters in the top housing to drain water away from the electrics. Waterproof covers are also used to shield the plugs and sockets while still allowing the cords to remain plugged in through special slots while the cover is closed.
Moving the Power-Hub is also easy thanks to soft touch over moulded handles which provide maximum grip comfort and double as tie down points to secure it while being transported in a vehicle.
Managing the Power-Hub’s operation is simple via the unit’s full colour, 2.4” LCD screen. The display includes comprehensive information on the battery including predicted state of charge, battery health, time to full charge and time to empty as well as programmable low battery and battery health alarms, ensuring there’s always power available when required.
The Power-Hub also makes use of patented self-learning technology to determine the battery capacity and health over the life of the battery. This same technology can automatically distinguish the chemistry of the donor battery (Wet, AGM, Gel or Calcium).
With the ability to power laptops, radios, fridges and lighting and provide battery charging power for a host of other appliances, tools and equipment, the Power-Hub is a viable alternative to operating a dual battery system, eliminating installation costs while providing greater portability away from the vehicle.
Recharging the Power-Hub is also easy – this can be done with a 240V AC charger or solar panel (not included) connecting via either the DC terminals or 50A heavy duty socket. While charging the Power-Hub can remain in use and the smart battery gauge will still show the net charging status of the battery.
Projecta’s new PH125 Power-Hub can be purchased at all leading transport, automotive and four wheel drive outlets throughout Australia at approximately $499.00 (battery not included), providing great power convenience no matter what the location.
