Powered Shallow Boat (RS4P)

Regular sized boat (see above for dimensions and options) containing an intermal power supply ("mobile PSU") and power distribution designed to power 1 or 2 boats using an external ("laptop style") converter:

  • SHALLOW boat: NEW: 66 mm deep (64 mm inside)
  • Cutouts and threads as in the regular boat (see above)
  • Pre-installed internal PSU with 1000 mA per rail
  • linear regulation (exactly trimmable)
  • almost 3x the power of an external PS2A
  • Internal Power distribution (PSD) with 6 MTA-156 outputs
  • Boat acts as a heatsink
  • designed for a MEAN WELL GSM60A24-P1J (60W) or GSM90A-24-P1M (90W) AC / DC converter - (not included!) - DO NOT USE ANY OTHER ADAPTER!!
  • Perfect for travelling (works with 110V 220V etc.)

Powered boats are custom-built according to panel / modules (to make sure the space / depth is sufficient). Please check (with us) before you order if your intended panel / module(s) will fit - most likely, STS and CGS panels will be too deep to allow an internal PSU!

Price: € 500 - BUILT TO ORDER, may take up to 2 weeks -
