A Better Way to Distribute Power than the Stud on the Starter
In many cases, the OEMs use the battery terminal on the starter or
starter solenoid for this. Let's face it, most of us have exhaust
modifications to our vehicles. Why then run all of your power cables
to this point and subject them to the heat generated by the exhaust?
Heating copper increases it's resistance, which then requires greater
voltage to get the same amount of current to flow.
Shown at the top right is an RFD1 installed in a 1941 Willys. It
convenient way to connect the rear mounted battery (1/0
to both the starter (2 AWG cable) and the charge lead
alternator (4 AWG cable). Note that it's protective cover is
A Convenient Place to Access Power Under the Hood
Look under the hood of your vehicle. Chances are, you have a few
square inches of real estate available to locate a convenient power
distribution center. This will allow you to easily connect multiple high
current accessories, an auxiliary fuse panel, or both.
Shown second down on the right is an RFD4 installed in a 1991 Ford
vehicle has one of our Battery Relocation Kits, at
the RFD4 is
included. It provides a simple place to connect the
battery (1/0 AWG cable) to the starter solenoid (4 AWG
auxiliary fuse panel (4 AWG cable), and has one additional
could be used to provide power to a second auxiliary fuse
panel or a
high current accessory.
A Convenient Place to Distribute Power for any Project
Shown third down on the right is a pair of our 250 Amp Junction Studs.
this application they are used to connect a pair of large circuit
breakers together to double the current capacity of a single breaker.
[As shown, they are also included in our Battery Relocation Kits.]
Shown at the bottom is a combination of numerous power distribution
products to simplify a complex wiring installation that includes a relay
. Note the RFD1 on the left, one of our 75 Amp Terminal
to it's right, and one of our 30 amp Terminal Blocks in the middle.
Finally, note the use of one of our ATC Fuse Panels.
Quite simply - these products will simplify your projects while keeping
things in order. These are some of our most popular components!
