DC Gate 40
Paradan radio presents the DC Gate 40
This is a 13.8 volt battery back-up system for powering your radio station, “go box”, or RV. It can output up to 40 amperes from either the power supply or the battery. Whenever the AC power is lost, the FET gate switches from the power supply to the battery, instantaneously. A small built-in charger keeps the battery fresh. It is solidly made on a heatsink and connections are Powerpoles.
