    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?

    the molex on the left is used to power my LCD screen and 7-port usb hub.

    the molex on the right is used to power the dsatx

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