The SS30DV is designed to supply 25 Amps continuous (up to 5 minutes) and 30 Amps surge at 14.1 VDC. It is the perfect companion supply for the Elecraft K3, K2/100, KX3 with KXPA100 and most other rigs. Cabling can be connected to either the rear, 5-way binding posts or the dual front Powerpole connectors.
The SS30DV supports all the peripherals for a K-Line (K3S, P3, KAT500) or the KX-Line (KX3/KX2, KXPA100 and PX3).
Physical dimensions and materials:
A: Elecraft found that the Power Werx SS30DV worked for power their demo booths at Hamfests for well over 3 years. We're confident that it meets our criteria for a low-noise, small sized power supply suitable for very small shacks yet can support an entire K-Line or KX-Line of products, as our customers expand their systems.
A: Yes, but its speed will vary on the transmitting load. When receiving, the fan cannot be heard.
A: No. The SS30DV is factory-adjusted to provide input voltage for Elecraft radios to meet specified RF output specs, 13.8 volts DC.
A: Yes. Please order the proper AC plug/cable from the list of cables available for the KPA500. You can find these on the KPA500 product order page. The SS30DV can be switched to operate world wide in 120 volt or 220/240 volt AC power distribution systems.
