Power pole connection to the FEX-6300

Hi all,

I seem to have a problem with the Anderson Power Pole connector on my FLEX-6300.
Is this difficult to change it or to replace it by an other type of connector. Or does this need qualified professional skils ?

Any info and help welcome.

    Eddy, what kind of problem? On my 6400, just yesterday I used a couple of drops of D100 and gained a couple of tenths voltage. This I do a few times a year. The other issue is the connector mating does not feel solid. This seems to be a mechanical issue.

    I use FRstac’s voltmeters and monitor voltage inside PP connectors and can easily see voltage drop from no load to full load.

    A long thread about this topic is on the community. Also, I rarely disconnect/connect the PP.

    Hi Lionel,

    Thanks for your quick reply. It's a bad contact and the slightest tuch on the wires shuts down the FLEX_6300. I have searched the communty but could not find any thread. Could you send me a link to that thread please ?

    Yes, I will find it. There’s another community for flex that is not associated with the company and it might be on that site. Regardless, I’ll find it. I believe the “satisfying” positive connection of the past is weakening.

    id open the 6300 see how they are connected. The Flex service department must have enough history of PP issues to offer recommendations.

    off I go to search.

    Merry Christmas Eddy.

    I found this link: https://groups.io/g/FlexRadioSmartSDR/topic/29112663#5778

    Discussion about voltage drop and some other links to more info.

    I’ll send you any other PP info that comes across.
