THE NEW, BRILLIANT WAY TO INSTALL
A 12/48V DC DUAL-BATTERY SYSTEM
THIS is a remarkable, new cost and time-saving device is called the DC-Hub. Imagine a simple, extremely robust DC input/output fuse box combination board that reduces workshop time by a large factor, but also does away with the need for specialist expertise when building DC electric setups. All components are wired to this single central hub, including AC chargers, solar panels and DC-chargers. And from the same unit are wires run to all accessories, such as fridges, lights, compressors and more. And, do this without the need of crimps, lugs, shrinks or expertise. All the time consuming works is done for you!
If you are building and installing DC electrics into 4WDs, RVs, boats of all sizes, and even dwellings that run on solar-charged DC setups, this is a marvellous, cost saving and quality-enhancing device.
Because sometimes, analogue is just easier and more reliable, and can be set-up by anyone, anywhere.

If you are building and installing DC electrics into 4WDs, recreational vehicles, boats of all sizes, and even dwellings that run on solar-charged DC setups, this is a device that saves on both time and expertise.
GERMAN QUALITY. AUSSIE-MADE
Simple, made from the best German components and assembled in Australia, the best part: No electronics! Because sometimes, analogue is just easier and more reliable, and can be set-up by anyone, anywhere.
One of the biggest challenges of electrical installations is the lack of expertise, and the resultant quality shortfalls. With the Egon DC-Hub, there are no need for lugs. No need for heat shrinks. No need for lots of experience. Simply strip the wires, and insert.
The board is marked with input instructions and every unit comes with an installation guide. These guides are backed up up by installation videos on our YouTube channel.
Aux battery. 150A max
Start battery. 60A max
DC-DC Charger 60A max
High-capacity output. 80A max
General 50A max
Dual input/output 50A max
10 x 25A general output.
FUSE FAILURE INDICATORS
Should a fuse blow the corresponding red LED will glow, indicating a failure. Fault-tracing then becomes effortless.

The DC-Hub replaces the following items:
Crimps and lugs.
Optional cradle (mount bracket) available.
TESTED TO DESTRUCTION
We proved that our goal to over-engineer the DC-Hub worked, putting massive current over-loads through the connections and PC board, over extended time periods, resulted in no warping, melting or any significant damage of any kind. We abused it beyond anything that could happen in the real world, and it came back smiling. And amazingly, even though we tested one to destruction - it still works faultlessly. We couldn't destroy it!
Above is a photo taken during the heat test. Here we put 110 amps through the 25-amp max fuse connector, which was replaced with 5-gauge wire. After 15 minutes it reached over 120°C, melted the insulation on the wire, but never damaged the PC board, which has a rated capacity of 90°C. We then did a similar test with the 80-amp output, and there was a lot of smoke. The DC-Hub remained undamaged.
All DC-Hubs are shipped with instructions and wiring guides, and to calculate wire sizes for length, we suggest the following table:
Above video: Heiner and Andrew discuss the differences between the EGON DC-Hub and the Redarc Redvision. They are very different in many ways, and their uses are often confused.
This is one of the first DC-Hubs installed in an overland Toyota Troopy camper, build by Autograph Overland, late 2019.
