EGON DC Hub is a unique cost saving device designed to eliminate the expertise needed for vehicle-based DC wiring builds. If you are building and installing DC electrics into 4WDs, RVs, boats of all sizes, and even dwellings that run on solar-charged DC setups, this is a marvellous, cost saving and quality-enhancing device.
We are currently out of stock. Orders as off 15/04/2021 will be on backorder with expected arrival 23th April 2021.
EGON DC-Hub Power Distribution Hub is the new, brilliant way to install a 12/48V DC Dual Battery System | Perth Pro Auto
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
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.
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!
The DC Hub does not come with any fuses, but Perth Pro does sell 2 kinds of fuses in a convenient kit

DC- Hub Bracket
This EGON DC HUB COMBO KIT also comes with a specifically designed DC BRACKET AND COVER to mount the EGON DC-Hub.
It consists of a stainless-steel mounting bracket combined with a see-through high-quality hard plastic cover.
The easily removed cover lets you see everything going on behind it, for example a blown fuse.
The mounting bracket is designed to permit ease of mounting in any choice of direction and includes multiple anchor points that permit cable ties to fix each cable.
The bracket contains holes on one side for cable ties to reduce vibration and a clear front to see everything going on.
It has multiple, conveniently placed mounting holes that means a quick and easy installation.

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.
What is the max Ah ( Amp Hour) rating the DC Hub can handle?
While the max Amp Rating for the start battery input is 60A through a DC/DC charger or Smart Solenoid, the Ah isn't the same. As long as the fuse ratings on the circuit board are not exceeded the DC Hub is compatible with any size battery bank on the start battery side or house / accessory battery side. It is important to note that Ah and A are two different things:
Ah = The capacity of a battery (as in how much energy is in the battery).
A = The amount of current running through an electrical conductor.
