Fitted an Innovv Powerhub
« on: April 25, 2019, 01:58:23 PM »
See photo below.

Fits reasonably well. I have glued it in place with Sugru.

It has five fused feeds. I use it to power: dashcam, autocom, and heated gloves.

This leaves just the powerhub itself and the battery tender attaced to the battery terminals.

The yellow wire is connected to a switched live, and triggers the hub into life, after 10s on the power going live.

Two feeds remain for future purposes, but it's pretty crowded there.

I have fed the satnav from a permanent live - I prefer that the satnave stays on.

Haha. Not really. If you fiddle for long enough, it falls into place.

The one issue I have with the unit is that there is one earth cable, which means you need to find a way of connecting up to five device earth wires to it. I cludged it witha domestic connector. Anyone have any ideas for a six-to-one connection?

Do you have room for anything like this. They're available in 4-14 pole configurations... https://www.wiringproducts.com/stud-junction-block-8-stud.html

Ah, yes, that would do it. Thanks. I will search locally. Not sure about the size.

I wouldn't go for non weather-proof components here.
As I discovered some months ago, moisture definitely can find its way in.

Are your fuses auto-rearming?

I use Triumph's Optimate adapter lead for my Optimate 3 on the front power socket, saves another connection to the battery and is easy to plug in and out. Part number: A9930416 and as good a price as any other supplier for the same lead.

That adapter can then be used for other accessories like a temporary cigarette lighter socket for airbed pumps, tyre pumps etc.  or a heated clothing connection, in my case my Keis adapter is shown here.

No, they are standard fuses.

Interesting question. The fuse holders are built into the unit, as delivered. The covers are a tight fit. I guess I could pull them open and lather a bit of vaseline in them. I don't really want to butcher the wiring at this time.

Dielectric grease is what you want. I usually dab a bit on any and all motorcycle electrical connections when I have them apart for any reason.
