As you can see in my thread (https://www.ctx1300forum.com/forum/h...tml#post372599
) I have been working on a mono wheel trailer and a "trailer Light Module" to power the lights on the trailer. In that design I decided that I also want front fog lights, upgraded horn and probably something else in the future. The problem is the battery terminals start to get congested and dangerous (even fused) with all the wires and it becomes an unmanageable mess. Not to mention the original issue of connecting to the LED signal controller system without damage.
With all that said, I had a friend design a switching module that I will be making for my bike(s).
If there is enough interest, I can have these produced in a fabrication shop and save everyone time and money. If there is no interest, I will just make mine and one for the PCB designer and be done with it.
Please reply to this thread if you are interested in joining a group buy for this module to help make it cheaper for everyone.
First, this is not a cheap ____ (insert country here) knock off, it will be well made and most likely over engineered.
Secondly it will be universal to use on any bike, boat or whatever.
Thirdly it does have some limitations like any product.
As always, I know every ones first thought is "how much?"
For my single PCB (no enclosure) I expect the cost to be around $75. That does not include the money I will give the designer for all his work on the PCB nor the time I will spend assembling(soldering) the PCB.
If >10 were needed, I could have a fabrication house make them and the cost would be less and zero work on our part. So I am putting this out to this group, my old Magna and Valkyrie groups. The more we have made the cheaper they get.
**ONLY ONE** 30 amp fused main circuit to the battery
Ignition switch activated outputs
Four switched outlets @1 amp for trailer lights.
Four switched outlets @8 amps for auxiliary uses such as horns, fog lights, etc.
Currently 2.5"W x 4.5"L Will have to assemble to measure height.
Below is the first revision of the board layout. It is being changed to include mounting holes.
