    Default what is it?

    I am looking for some help on an item I won in an auction. here are my assumptions about this item.
    1 master 24 volt input with master switch on front.
    8 individually switched outputs.
    supposedly it is a power filter for an mrap.
    i have not opened it up yet, but the thing weighs a ton.
    what else is there to it? power in, switched power out is there something i am missing or another use for this item i am not considering?

    I don't know the actual end use of this thing, but in general, it's a nice box for anyone with a bunch of pieces of 24V equipment in their truck. They're not just on-off switches, but circuit breakers rated for the amount of current printed on the front label of each switch. That's a nice, compact, and durable way to assemble such an arrangement.

    Well...here's the manufacturer's page: http://www.uec-electronics.com/mrap-...on-unit-pdu-2/
    Also...look at the freakin' prices we're charged for them:
    As much as $14,700 if you only order a few, or as "little" as $2,261 if you order 250 at once.
