This is the "High Power Switch" from DAGU. Originally designed for the "Wild Thumper" robot chassis's it is a very versatile switch that can be used with any robot that draws more than the 2-3A that most small switches can handle.
This switch will work with batteries from 6V to 24V with a maximum voltage of 32V so you can charge your 24V batteries without damaging the switch.
Without any heatsinking this switch will handle 10A easily. Mounted on a CPU heatsink with heat transfer compound and a cooling fan and this switch will handle up to 60A continuous!! The FET's are fully insullated to simplify mounting requirements.
To make the switch as robot friendly as possible we have now added a socket for an external manual switch. This allows another switch to be more conveniently mounted. Simply leave the onboard switch in the "off" position.
A digital input allows the switch to be controlled by a processor. Simply connect the grounds and apply a voltage of ate least 1V to the digital input to turn the switch on. This gives a robot the ability to turn itself off after recharging it's battery.
