  • Case power jacks

    I have a mini-itx case that I'm dropping a DSATX into. I'm looking for a clean way to connect power, ground, ignition, and remote lines to the power supply, which is not exposed outside of the case. I will probably end up powering my touch screen and a USB hub from the power supply as well. I would like to have the ability to quickly disconnect everything.

    I was thinking about just adding a series of panel mount coaxial jacks that accept barrel plugs, but it looks like finding a jack that can handle the current requirements of the DSATX may be a problem. The last thing I was considering was just to bore a hole, slip in a vinyl grommet, and simply leave several inches of exposed wire with insulated spade connectors dangling. It's definitely more ghetto, but functional.

    Any suggestions?

        otherwise, look for anderson power poles--they are a high current connector that can be linked together, and have many colors for easy identification:
