It is below the power connector.  It is visible on the latest PowerGenius XL brochure.

Ria, sorry also the pictures at Flex shop are wrong !

Picture here at thread and Flex shop page shows a Power conntector for 10A max!

KES 1-36


Picture at 4O3A web page (rendert) show a connector for 16A max for VDE and 20A for UL
KES 16-1

and Tim answer my quest about max Power consumption = 20A

So this connector is not allowed in EU if 20A true!


But Ranko will know it and use the right hardware for the EU version if they will exist

(  As you know, i am a hardware developer for RF Power Amps at RF-Kit.de )

I think the brochure is a bit dated as well. You are right, they did change the case design, you are correct. But there is no updated photo.

Yes the power connector is different too. IEC C14 vs C19. C19 makes more sense.

BTW I think that the model demo'ed at Dayton was using the C14 connector.

I see what Tim said, but why are the pictures diff. I  have understood the latest picture would show a larger display, but in the brochure, it is smaller. I am not trying to beet this to death,,but it is still confusing as to what the shipping look will be like. Or is it not final yet?

The amp has undergone refinements since first announced based on feedback from customers and beta testers.  We'll have preproduction photographs of the PGXL published on the website in due time.

The one on 4O3A website is just a rendering and not accurate either

The second image, the one showing the back of the amp, looks like a computer generated image.  Doesn't look real to me.  Almost like one taken from a cad program.

Ok, so the latest picture of the back of the amp is not yet available, but we can probably safely assume there will be a RF ground connector somewhere on the back, because the older pictures showed one.

I'm slowly learning to never assume anything.

I think it is standard for ham equipment to have a ground lug.

Especially for passing certification, I would think.
