This unit is the ‘hub’ of the Modular Power System. It is needed to connect two or more of the modules together.
When connected to a suitable mains supply, the hub provides power for each part of the Modular Power System. It also links the electrical test circuits so students do not need to use long test leads between modules.
The hub links the emergency stop buttons of each connected module to give better safety in the laboratory.
The user can select from a choice of two emergency stop settings:
- One setting stops the power to only the affected module of the Modular Power System, leaving the others still powered.
- The other setting stops the power to all modules of the Modular Power System.
The emergency stop setting switch is a keyswitch to prevent unauthorised use.
