Paradan Radio DC Gate 80

The Paradan Radio DC Gate 80 is a 13.8 volt high-power battery back-up system for powering your radio station, repeater, or other equipment.  It can supply up to 80 amperes from either a power supply or a battery.  Whenever the ac power is lost, this unit instantaneously switches from a power supply to a battery.  The switching element is a dual Schottky Diode.  There is a built- in four-stage 10-20 amp battery charger to rapidly restore the battery following a power outage.  Charge current, and battery voltage, are displayed on a easy to read LCD digital meter.  One-quarter inch brass studs assure robust electrical connections.
