EGON DC-Hub Power Distribution Hub is the new, brilliant way to install a 12/48V DC Dual Battery System | Perth Pro Auto

 

Description 

THIS is a remarkable, new cost and time-saving device is called the DC-Hub. Imagine a simple, extremely robust DC input/output fuse box combination board that reduces workshop time by a large factor, but also does away with the need for specialist expertise when building DC electric setups.

All components are wired to this single central hub, including AC chargers, solar panels and DC-chargers. From the same unit are wires run to all accessories, such as fridges, lights, compressors and more. This can all be done without the need of crimps, lugs, shrinks or expertise. All the time-consuming works is done for you!

 It connects all elements of a DC installation, including first battery, auxiliary batteries, DC-DC, alternator, solar, DC-DC and other charging devices.

The highest quality connectors mean that soldered or crimped lugs, as well as heat-shrink is unnecessary.

This reduces labour time and the need for expertise and speeds up fault finding and warranty comebacks.

With the DC-Hub there is no need for the following items:

  • Crimps and lugs
  • Fuse box
  • Heat shrink
  • Optional cradle (mount bracket) available

The DC-Hub Bracket is also available separately or you can purchase the kit together.  

FOOL PROOF

One of the biggest challenges of electrical installations is the lack of expertise, and the resultant quality shortfalls. With the Egon DC-Hub, there are no need for lugs. No need for heat shrinks. No need for lots of experience. Simply strip the wires, and insert.

NO ELECTRONICS

Because sometimes, analogue is just easier and more reliable, and can be set-up by anyone, anywhere.

TESTED TO DESTRUCTION

We proved that our goal to over-engineer the DC-Hub worked, putting massive current over-loads through the connections and PC board, over extended time periods, resulted in no warping, melting or any significant damage of any kind. We abused it beyond anything that could happen in the real world, and it came back smiling. And amazingly, even though we tested one to destruction - it still works faultlessly. We could not destroy it!

FAQ

What is the difference between the EGON DC-Hub and Redarc’s Red Vision System?

There are several differences between these two products. The main one being the simplicity of the DC-Hub, which stays away from the technology of screens and phones, etc simplifying the product immensely. The Red Vision has many integrated features including water level monitoring, temperatures, etc.

 The installation of the Red vision includes running multiple cables and requires lugs, crimps, and shrink cable; whereas the DC-Hub doesn’t. All cables go to a single point and no other bits and pieces are required.

The Red Vision has a max of 80A where the DC-Hub has a max of 150A

For more information about the comparison of these products, check out the youtube video EGON created for it : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1KUqof7JJ4

 

How foolproof is it?

The EGON DC-Hub is so simply designed that almost anyone with basic electrical knowledge can easily install. The worst thing that could go wrong is that a fuse blows, but you will always be aware if that happens when the corresponding LED goes on.

If you set your DC-Hub up with the correct cable thickness and fuse rating, blown fuses shouldn’t be a problem. We have wiring instructions available on our youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdilxfQOXhs&t=4s) and documents explaining Wiring.
