    I am looking to find a ignition + on a CBE DS450ra panel I have looked at a diagram of this and was thinking of trying to splice in some where to get a feed for a relay to isolate the hab batteries whilst the engine is running.
    The reason for doing this I have fitted a B2B a friend at Newark said use the fridge supply I think I have found that but am a bit warey as the panel looks expensive if I get the wrong one!

    If it is anything like my 520? it is connector 25
    If correct it will only have a voltage with the engine running

    Thanks Tecno

    That panel looks to be a different layout. The wire I think it is seems very thin though.:Smile:

    Give Rob Leafe at Automate a bell. He's based near Newark but could come out to you. Im sure he'll be able to put you right. His office number is 08456 529501 and mobile 07800 591216. Tell him you know me and Lynda. He's just sorted out a whole load of problems on our van only today.

    PS Are you going to Whitby?

    If you are at Peterborough I'll find it for you Steve.:BigGrin:

    The cable is quite thin, there is no need for the D+ cable to be any thicker. The relay coil only takes a few milliamps, so no problems!

    No Jon thats not the one it is a CBE DS450 ra what I will do is fit the relay and pull a wire through ready to connect then it is just a matter of connecting.
    I would post a pic from the net but not sure how to copy and attach it.

    Thanks
    Steve

    You could use the satellite dish connection point, D+ should be the green wire.
    I've just used it to isolate my electric awning.
